The Body and Blood of Christ The soldiers from our area were leaving for active duty overseas and the local television news covered their departure. The reporter asked each one what he was taking with him as a reminder of family and friends back home. The soldiers displayed pictures, lockets of hair, medals and lucky charms of all sorts. Each one took a little piece of home with him, hoping that they would come back, safe and sound. As Jesus prepares to face His crucifixion and death, He gives the Apostles more than just a reminder of Him. He gives them the gift of Himself—His true, real and eternal presence in the sacrament of the Eucharist. His Presence will guide, protect, nurture and heal the Church. Living and true, His Presence will unite people of all time and places into the one Body of Christ. The communion of saints is not something we observe, but the way we live our faith. St. Paul reminds us that Christ offers Himself as the sacrifice for all ages, forming us into His Body, the Church. Through Him, we receive the grace we need. With Him, we proclaim His Gospel. In Him, we draw our strength and purpose. As one Body, we share with each other life and faith, hope and love. It is the gift of His Presence that will lead us safely home.

June 3 ~ Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ This weekend we celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi – the Body and Blood of Christ. The Eucharist is central to our life of faith and the precious gift given to us by Jesus. At the Passover meal of the Last Supper, Jesus took the bread; blessed it, broke it, gave it to his disciples, and now He gave it to us, his disciples. Each time we gather for Mass and receive the Body and Blood of Christ we are sent forth to be the Body of Christ to others. As you leave Mass today, ask for the grace to carry Christ’s presence with you to your family, friends and co-workers
