Corpus Christi - "Give them some food yourselves"

Audio: Click here!

God is giving Himself to us at all moments, but here above all.
CCC 1380 It is highly fitting that Christ should have wanted to remain present to his Church in this unique way. Since Christ was about to take his departure from his own in his visible form, he wanted to give us his sacramental presence; since he was about to offer himself on the cross to save us, he wanted us to have the memorial of the love with which he loved us "to the end," even to the giving of his life. In his Eucharistic presence he remains mysteriously in our midst as the one who loved us and gave himself up for us, and he remains under signs that express and communicate this love.

Give them some food yourselves.  You cannot give what you don’t have.

We need to be refreshed by Christ in order to give Him to others.
Who thinks breathing regularly is a good thing?
Who thinks eating food daily is a good thing?
Prayer is our breath.
Sunday Mass, and most importantly the Eucharist, is our food.

As the Lord wants to be present to us, may we truly remain present to Him.
