The Body and Blood of Christ – The Eucharist Feast

The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ was originally called Corpus Christi – a Eucharistic Feast. The Eucharist is Christ’s gift to the Church to assure his presence with us. He is Emmanuel, God with us.

The Body and Blood of Christ – The Eucharist Feast

The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ was originally called Corpus Christi – a Eucharistic Feast. The Eucharist is Christ’s gift to the Church to assure his presence with us. He is Emmanuel, God with us.

“No one has ever seen God…” but Jesus has made God visible and tangible, in his earthly life and now in the Eucharist; with St. John we can say, “… What we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands….and declare to you…” (1 John 1:1-4).

We long for God’s presence; we believe in the Indwelling Presence of the Trinity at the core of our being; and we become present to the Eucharistic Lord and he to us in the Communion. It’s a moment of grace and a command to a Mission called: “Do this in remembrance of Me”.

The Body and Blood of Christ received in the Eucharistic celebration is our nourishment for our pilgrim journey. The Eucharist, the very breaking of the Body of Christ, now invites us to break our body for others.

We live the Eucharistic celebration beyond the Church, when we reach out to others in need of an encouraging word, a touch that builds up, a sharing of love, time, warmth and a life truly sacrificed for the good of the other at home or in the neighbourhood.

“Do this in remembrance of me” is not limited to the Eucharistic liturgy but becoming “bread” for others in concrete life situations. -- Fr. Charles Pinto, SVD
