Take… Eat… Drink!

IMG-20160719-WA0008Last Sunday, we celebrated the solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, whereby we were given an opportunity to know and experience God who is so close to us in the unity of the Trinity. The Father created us, the Son redeemed us and the Holy Spirit sanctifies us.

This Sunday, we celebrate the solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi). This feast invites us to know and experience that God who saved us through His Son, also sustains us with His body and blood. St. Mark tells us that Jesus asked His disciples to make preparations for the Last Supper and during the Passover meal, He took bread and wine and offered them as His own Body and Blood. This is actualized in the perfect sacrifice of the Cross of Jesus. How fortunate and blessed are we who partake in His supper today in the celebration of the Eucharist! We are sustained and nourished by Him.
