eucharist

  • 28th Sunday in ordinary time ‘year A’

    Theme: Food and eternity

    After toiling long hours, in a brutal climate, on rough terrain, with only the simplest implements, Israelites considered themselves fortunate to be able to provide a simple meal for their families; only to begin the whole laborious process all over again the next day. Thus the idea of a lavish free banquet at which every hunger could be treated was equivalent to paradise.

  • Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ - year B

    Theme: The Eucharist is our life

    In one village there was a 6-year-old boy who refused to go to school. Each day, despite his protests, his mother walked him there, but as soon as she left him, he ran back home only to have his mother bring him back to the school again. No threat could convince him to change his mind. Finally, in desperation, his parents took him to their Catechist who said, ‘If the boy won’t listen to words, bring him to me’.

  • Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ

    The Eucharist: The body of Christ, bread that is broken for the life of the world

    Readings: Exodus 24:3-8, Psalm 116:12-13,15 and 16bc,17-18, Hebrews 9:11-15 , Mark 14:12-16.22-26

    Dear brother and sisters, today we celebrate a special day dedicated to the body and blood of Christ. Each and every day, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist but perhaps some times we have become so familiar with this experience that it does not anymore arouse awe and wonder in us.
