I heard it said that Jesus tabernacles in us.
St Faustina asked Jesus to remain with her until the next communion, and He did!! He remained with her until her next communion. But I don’t think He tabernacled in her. I can’t imagine Jesus sitting quietly in a tabernacle. I can’t imagine Jesus sitting quietly at all!! He is shown like that, sitting still on His throne, His Divine Hand in fixed blessing.
I know that it is said that Jesus waits for us in the tabernacle, silent, alone. St Faustina said that He was trapped there, held by His own Love.
His Love, His Infinite Love. I just can’t imagine His Infinite Love just quietly, silently trapped there by His own Infinite Love.
I think when He comes to us in Holy Communion, He does not enter to tabernacle in us, but to momentarily remain in our hearts and we become ciborium.
And that ciborium that we become is a precious vessel, made of gold, of great value because we hold the One of priceless value. He chooses to enter us and I don’t think He sits, He remains, I think, eagerly, embarking with us in search of to whom He will enter in Holy Communion.
We, as ciborium, carry Him out to give Him in Holy Communion to all we meet, we must, that is what a ciborium is for. To take Jesus to give Him away to all we meet.
Blessed be Jesus in us, as ciborium to bring to all we meet.
