His word caresses the strings of the heart

“You are more fortunate today than the prophet Isaiah. In the Eucharist and in the other sacraments, you experience the intimate closeness of Jesus, the sweetness and power of his presence. You do not encounter Jesus placed on an inaccessibly high throne, but in the bread and wine of the Eucharist. His word does not shake the doorposts, but rather caresses the strings of the heart.”—Pope Francis

Reflection:
What can we do to be more aware of Jesus' closeness and accessibility when we receive the Eucharist? What does it mean to you that Jesus' words "caress the strings of the heart" rather than "shake the doorposts"?
