The present moment

It is so difficult to remain conscious of the fact that the present moment expands into eternity. The modern world in which we live is so caught up in time, past and future, and in space, here and there. Yet both time, past and future, and space, here and there, are delusions, precisely delusions of the fallen intellect, the intellect which has fallen from contemplation of the absolute and eternal into reflection on the relative categories of existence, the categories of time, past and future, and of space, here and there. Thus the role of the Eucharistic is made evident, to bring us into the Presence, the present moment, here and now.
