Corpus Christi Sunday

From ancient times, wheat was ground into flour and baked into bread and grapes were crushed into juice and allowed to ferment into wine. Bread and wine became staples of the human diet, creating a simple meal that could be shared with others. Salem’s king served them to a victorious Abram, pairing the bread and wine with a call for God’s blessing.

At the Last Supper, Jesus blessed the bread and wine and shared them with his disciples as His body and blood. Let us thank God for the simple gifts of wheat and grapes, which are transformed to satisfy our every hunger, our every thirst.

To help us prepare for this celebration here are some helpful resources:

“If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion.”

St. Maximilian Kolbe

“The only cure for sagging of fainting faith is Communion. Though always Itself, perfect and complete and inviolate, the Blessed Sacrament does not operate completely and once for all in any of us. Like the act of Faith it must be continuous and grow by exercise.”

J.R.R. Tolkien
