Message of the Week

They All Ate and Were Satisfied

The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

The feeding of the multitude prefigured the institution of the Eucharist.

In today’s gospel, we hear of Jesus healing and speaking about the Kingdom of God.

The Eucharist is our healing and a route into our involvement in the Kingdom of God.

The Eucharist is the sustenance given to us to fulfill our mission as followers of Jesus.

Will we connect receiving the Eucharist and our mission as Christians?




The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

“This is My Body, This is My Blood.”

This is not figurative language.  Jesus meant exactly what He said.

He said,  “Take and eat.  Take and drink.”

Jesus remains with us forever.  Jesus can remain within each of us too.

We celebrate the Eucharist as a memorial of His saving sacrifice.

He shed His blood for us.

Are we prepared to allow Him to become part of us and everything we do?




I Am The Bread That Came Down From Heaven, Whoever Eats This Bread Will Live Forever…

The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Jesus’ life was consumed to save the world.

His life brought us eternal life.

He offers us an opportunity to participate in His life and our future together.

He did not leave us an idea, but rather the reality of His becoming part of us, and our becoming part of Him.  The Eucharist is our most intimate connection with our God.

What could possibly be a better offer for our lives and future?
