My dear friends in Christ!
The Body and Blood of Christ!
This weekend is Food Bank Sunday. Once more, we ask for your generous donations of non-perishable items to help those less fortunate.
This weekend we celebrate the Solemnity of the Body & Blood of Christ. At the Last Supper, Jesus said: “This is My body given for you; this is My blood shed for you. Do this in memory of Me.” Where do you think in our Christian living, besides in prayer, do we encounter the Lord Jesus more often and on the deepest level? Is it not in the Eucharist where He makes Himself our food and drink? Is this not the center of our whole Christian life? At Mass, we are nourished both by the Lord’s Body in Holy Communion and by God’s Word through the readings in the Liturgy of the Word.
Indeed, Jesus is truly, really and substantially present in the Eucharist. He gives Himself to us as our spiritual food. At the same time, He teaches us to give ourselves to one another.
May Jesus, the Bread of Life and Food for the Journey, sustain us in our journey to Eternal Life!
Love & Prayers!
