Enter My Eucharistic Heart invites you to consider how to go deeper in your relationship with God as you contemplate the beauty and gift of the Eucharist, how you receive, and speak to Jesus Christ after receiving. Though all prayers and reflections are written based on a personal experience with the Catholic Mass, the organization of this book of "love letters" invites all Christ believers to enter deeper into their own prayer life. As you read each section which starts with a personal story, journey forward on your disciple walk to contemplate how God pours into you; God gifts what you need; God holds you, and God heals your heart.
Can you consider a moment when you fell in love with God? Or, does that concept sound difficult to ponder? If you love Jesus and the joy of falling in love, come into a sacred place of my heart – an intimate place where God speaks directly to my soul, and I hear His voice and feel the warmth of His love. As a Catholic, I am blessed to receive the Eucharist –substantial love to nourish the soul. Whether you can receive this Sacrament or love Jesus with all your heart, enter God's Eucharistic Heart. A place where God pours strength into you, gifts wisdom, holds all your emotions, and heals your inner wounds. The "love letters" shared in these pages are not the norm for all who receive the Eucharist. Yet I desire that everyone can understand the power of love that comes in receiving the Eucharist – the miracle of receiving Christ's Body and Blood.
About the author
Julie Krakora is an avid spiritual writer/poet who is even described as a mystic by those who know her. In all things, especially in her own Christian witness, she strives to create opportunities to bring people closer in their personal relationship with God. This comes forth through her many personally crafted retreats, lesson plans, prayer writings, and presentations to specifically reach the audience in front of her. This personal attention, led by the Holy Spirit, is also always present in individual conversations with any teen or adult. Julie received her BA in Theology from Marquette University and her MA in Pastoral Studies with an emphasis in Christian Spirituality from Loyola University in Chicago. Infused from this Jesuit education, she fully embraces and constantly lives the motto of "Finding God in All Things." From this inherent view of the world, writing and teaching about God is both a gift from God and a passion for God. Professionally she has served in the Catholic ministerial field as a Director of Youth Ministry for junior high and high school teens; a campus minister/Theology teacher in Catholic high schools; Director of University Ministry on a college campus; and currently serves as Jr. High Director of Religious Education at a parish in a suburb of Chicago. Before publishing her first book, "Dancing with Spirit, Rooted in Light", she wrote numerous pastoral and Scriptural reflections for teens and adults for LTP (Liturgical Training Publications.)
