Jesus The Bread of Life – Celebrating Father’s Day

JESUS, THE BREAD OF LIFE, JESUS, THE CUP OF SALVATION!

The Body and Blood of Christ! The expression is all too familiar to us Catholic Christians. When Jesus first spoke of himself as re-al food, real drink, though, it was shocking and startling. Some took it as strange, unsettling, intolerable language and turned away from him.Today for many the Body and Blood of Christ is still unknown or misunderstood. For some Christians “Communion” is not a regular part of their experience and tradition. For others, the ritual surrounding the Body and Blood of Christ is merely “symbolic.”What about us Catholic Christians? We say that THIS IS FOR REAL! We say we believe in the real presence of Christ. We believe it is Real Food and Real Drink for Body and Spirit. We believe in the transformative power of the Eucharist in our lives. Are we attune to the Real Presence of Christ Jesus?
