Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) – 19 June 2022
Genesis 14:18-20. Psalm 110:1, 2, 3, 4. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26. Sequence – Lauda Sion / Laud, O Zion. Luke 9:11b-17.
About Dining in the Kingdom of God. Luke’s gospel is filled with meal stories. Most of them point to the Eucharistic Meal, as does the one today. Four verbs stand out: take, bless, break, give. This is eucharistic language repeated at every Mass. It is Jesus who truly took and blessed his Body and Blood – broke it and poured it out for each and for all of us – and gives to us to eat and drink – so that we may be like him and act like him.
- Because of my sharing in the Eucharistic Feast, how will I be a blessing to family, colleagues, neighbors?
- Because of my sharing in the Eucharistic Feast, how will I break open my life for the benefit of another?
- Because of my sharing in the Eucharistic Feast, what will I give away? If stumped, think of the mercy works.
Use this prayer card to be ever mindful of the Works of Mercy.
