Unless you eat the Flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. He who eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood will have life to the fullest (John 6:53-54).
These words are the basic foundation on which the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, which we celebrate this Sunday, is firmly based. In the First reading, Moses offered the communion sacrifice of blood to ratify the Covenant which God had with His people. This sacrifice is the prefigurement of the singular Sacrifice made by Christ, which is continually made present in the Eucharist. In the Gospel, Christ reminds us that partaking of the Eucharist worthily is a basic requirement for one to have eternal life.
As Christians, we participate in the Body and Blood of Jesus through the Sacrament of the Eucharist, which is a Meal, Sacrifice, and Real Presence of Christ in our lives. May the worthy reception of the Body and Blood of Christ not only brings us spiritual and material nourishment but may also open the floodgates of blessings, joy, and peace in our lives and families. Happy Solemnity of the Corpus Christi!
