Review the Readings

Listen to the Readings

 

This Sunday we reflect in a very special way on the Eucharist...

The Body and Blood of Jesus Christ... Corpus Christi.


 

Bodyblood

 

 

 

 

Genesis-14In the first reading we reflect on the fact that Abraham was returning victoriously from a battle against the invading kings from the east who had attacked and destroyed.

As Abraham returns home he is met by the high priest and king of Salem, Melchizedek who meets and congratulates Abraham and makes an offering of bread and wine to God to show their thanks for the victory in the struggle.

 

 

1corinthians

Paul writes about the blessed Eucharist.  We hear of an account to the early church of the Body and Blood of Christ given to them and to us today.

 

 

Jesus communion

 

 
It was in the celebration at the Last Supper when the Lord instituted for all of us, throughout time, the Holy Eucharist as a way of feeding and caring for us.

 

 

 

 

3-gospel-luke

 Here we are given an account of Jesus feeding the 5000 people who were out in the middle of nowhere.

As evening approached the apostles encourage Jesus to dismiss the crowd so they can go home for food and shelter since they were in a very desolate place.



We can see that Jesus had great concern for the people by making sure that they had sustenance for their journey home.

Jesus-Feeds-5000


When we find ourselves in that desolate place in our lives, there is always the Lord who is always present in the Holy Eucharist.

Desperation

It is so easy in times of desperation, in times of feeling abandoned, in times of not dealing well with the cross-the struggles and the difficulties in our lives, not to turn to the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist where he awaits to strengthen us.
