If you answer, "yes" — what would you do?
Even were you the only one to see Him, you would care nothing of appearing to make a fool of yourself ... and fall to your knees! You know it!
If you answer, "no" (remember, seeing Him with your eyes!), then you are more than a fool, for even a fool would not be insolent before God.
Now ask yourself — from the depths of your being: "Do I really believe"?
Do not worry about setting precedents. Judas put his lips to Our Blessed Lord 2000 years ago ... "on the night he betrayed him." You cannot do worse, although you could choose to do far better ...
I do not presume to admonish you, St. Paul does:
"Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord ... For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord. " (I Corinthians 11.27-29)
The question, then, still stands after all ... doesn't it?
