BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST (A) June 14, 2020

Deuteronomy 8: 2-3, 14b-16a; 1 Corinthians 10: 16-17; John 6: 51-58

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

From today’s I Corinthians reading:

 

The cup of blessing that we bless,

Is it not a participation in the blood of Christ?

The bread that we break,

Is it not a participation in the body of Christ?

 

Reflection:

 

At communion, when the Eucharistic ministers hold the sacred food and drink before us, they will say, "the Body of Christ; the Blood of Christ." They are not only naming what they are offering us, they are also naming each one of us. In other words, the real presence is not only to be found in church, but in each baptized Christian nourished by the Eucharist and becoming the real presence of Christ to the world.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Does receiving the Eucharist make me more conscious of my union with those believers around me in church?

  • Have I ever thought of being a eucharistic minister at liturgy, or for the homebound?
