Feast of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ
When Jesus knew He was leaving us, He gave us the great gift of Himself in the Eucharist. Jesus remains in a physical, sacramental way with us. He comes to us and remains with us. We are nourished by His Body and Blood when we receive Him in Holy Communion. In the prayer after Communion we pray, "that we may delight for all eternity in that share in your divine life, which is foreshadowed in the present age by our reception of your precious Body and Blood."
Let us spend some time in thanking for this great gift of the Eucharist.
