June 18: Corpus Christi

Today’s reading from Deuteronomy, well known to us from the testing of Jesus in the wilderness (Mt 4:4; Lk 4:4), provides a key to the Eucharistic discourse in John’s Gospel. It makes the connection between the manna with which God fed the Israelites during their sojourn in the wilderness, and the word of God. Manna, that bread from heaven, came to be associated with Torah. By devouring “every word that came from the mouth of the Lord,” the people of Israel were nourished as they had been by eating the manna in the wilderness. In today’s Gospel Jesus is proclaiming that the life of God’s people will now be nourished and sustained by the Word of God incarnate, his flesh, which is true food, and his blood, which is true drink. In all three of today’s readings the gift of bread from heaven, be it manna or Torah or the body and blood of Christ, is a test of those who receive it. This is surely the situation of the Christians in Corinth, who apparently must be persuaded that their participation in the body and blood of Christ is the source of their life and unity as one body.

CORPUS CHRISTI CELEBRATION

The Feast of Corpus Christi is this Sunday, June 18th, 2017. At the conclusion of the 11:00 am Mass, Fr. Jacek will process with the Blessed Sacrament to the Altars outside. The four Altars have been prepared by the Polish School, Knights of Columbus, Rosary Society and the children of the Religious Education.

Please plan to join us for this beautiful celebration as we publicly honor and praise our Lord, Jesus, in the Blessed Sacrament.
