The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ
                            (Corpus Christi)


It has been reported that when St. Augustine was giving the Eucharist to a communicant, instead of saying, “The body of Christ”, he would say: “Receive what you are.” In this communion we sacrifice the things that divide us to become in reality the body and blood of Christ. We are meant to be changed, to be transubstantiated, just as profoundly as the bread and wine.

St. John Chrysostom (c. 349 – 407) asked, “What is the bread actually? The body of Christ. What do communicants become? The body of Christ. Just as bread is the result of many grains and although remaining themselves are not distinguished from one another because they are united, so we too are mutually united with Christ.”

“Brothers and sisters: 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? Because the loaf of bread is one, we, though many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.” (1Corinthians10:16-17 today’s second reading)

This weekend, we celebrate the gift of the body and blood of Christ. We also celebrate the gift of one another in Christ.

May we become what we receive! Fr. Joe Hannappel
