Eucharist of the Tabernacle is ignored

I was taught patience through a stray "wild" gray cat. He finally trusted me, since he sleeps right through all my noisy work. I talked and whistled to him. Seemed to understand him. Told him to be careful with the flowers.

Sitting by my bedroom window, I watched as he carefully stepped over them. Thereafter, I discovered the culprit — the neighbor's cat — he actually ate the flowers. That old gray cat was very clean; he was a fine friend for a guy who never really loved cats.

Trust is a big word. Our Lord has shown great patience for gentiles and Jews. To what avail? Only one-third of Catholics believe in the Eucharist of the Tabernacle; 85 percent of Israel doesn't believe in God. Yet 5 percent of the Bible is about the Tabernacle. This is what Catholics and Jews share — the Jewish Messiah.

From 520 to 518 B.C., Zechariah contains the most predictions about Christ (amazing considering how far before). In his last chapter, 14, he states that the great sin of Egypt — and all nations — is not to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

Holy Communion fulfills the eating of the Old Testament Sacrifice (John 6:48-60). But even in Jesus' time, many doubted and rejected His teaching (John 6:61, 65-67), or corrupted it with adaptations.

Scholars recognize the seven-day "Thanksgiving" of the Jewish Feast of the Tabernacles. But they neglect the most solemn occasion — the eighth day — which was the True Holy Convocation (Leviticus 23:36; Nehemiah or 2 Esdras 8:18).

For Catholics, this is Resurrection Sunday or "New Beginning." The "Fulfillment" is the Fruit of Christ's Sacrifice and cornerstone of the Catholic Mass (John 7:37).

How will Jews finally come to this understanding? Extreme pressure — not only permitted but encouraged (Ezekiel 38:2-6, 17-23; 39:25-29). Jesus Christ is patience; He loves Jews. Any chastisement is only for their good — their "eternal" souls. He is their True Messiah (Emmanuel) of the Tabernacle: "God with us" (Matthew 1:23).
