When we had benediction at the conference, and the priest passed our bleacher, he turned the monstrance toward us and the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist just grabbed me and I felt that he was looking right at me to assure me he was always with me and watching over me. It was a powerful encounter with Jesus. I felt weak and sat down and wept in thanksgiving to Jesus for this encounter. Jesus was truly there and wanted me to be there to meet him in a very personal way. I relate to God the Father and the Holy Spirit well, but sometimes have trouble relating to Jesus as my friend. This encounter is helping me be a better friend with Jesus.
