December 27 - St. John, Apostle and Evangelist
On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them, "They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don't know where they put him." So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb (John 20: 1-3).
St. John the Evangelist is a great example of a man who was totally dedicated to Christ. He wanted to be with him whenever he could. We can visit Christ in the Eucharist.
Lord Jesus, I want to visit you more often in the Eucharist.
