Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ
Body Blood Of Christ Sloemnity Pic_1.jpg

“They all ate and were satisfied”   

1st Reading: Genesis 14:18-20     2nd Reading: 1 Corinthians 11:23-26     Gospel: Luke 9:11b-17

Today, In the Bible, meals are much more than a means of satisfying physical hunger. The Hebrew people viewed eating a meal as a way of expressing and strengthening their relationship to one another under God's covenant. Brothers and sisters imagine that you are going on a week-long hiking or camping trip, and you need to plan out your meals for the journey. It would be important when going on such a trip to bring along enough food and the right kinds of food to sustain yourselves along the way. We often use the word journey to describe our spiritual life and in this Sunday's Gospel, (Luke 9:11b-17); we learn about the kind of food we will need for that spiritual journey. What did the disciples want to do with the large hungry crowd? (They wanted to send them away.) What does Jesus tell the disciples to do? (He tells them to give the crowd some food to eat.) Jesus took five loaves of bread and two fish and was able to feed the entire crowd of 5,000 people until they were satisfied. What then do we learn about Jesus from this story? (Jesus satisfies our spiritual hunger.) As we celebrate the feast of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, we are thankful for the gift of the Eucharist, the meal that feeds us on our spiritual journey. Pray the words we pray before coming forward to receive the Eucharist at Mass: Lord, I am not worthy to receive you, but only say the word, and my soul shall be healed.

 

God’s Blessings,
