Corpus Christi Sunday Bulletin Insert for June 19, 2022.

Description: The scriptures for Corpus Christi Sunday (the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ) speak of the Holy Eucharist. “Love is like five loaves and two fish, always too little until you start giving it away” — this is the message inscribed at a shrine near the northern end of the Sea of Galilee, built where Jesus multiplied a small amount of food to provide for the needs of everyone in the large crowd who had come to see him. In front of the altar is a Byzantine mosaic of the loaves and fish, dating about 480 A.D. It’s next to the rock upon which Jesus blessed the food. However, in the mosaic you can see only four loaves, not five. Why? It’s because the fifth loaf is the bread of the Eucharist in which Jesus comes to us in Holy Communion at every Mass.

This reflection also explains that the Eucharist is our earthly, direct connection to all the perfect love of God. The reason we don’t feel the fullness of that love is because we don’t fully understand how to unite ourselves to the Eucharist. To receive the  Eucharist fully, we have to be the Eucharist fully. The Eucharist is love given in sacrifice for the sake of others. If you’re not receiving enough love, give more love – be the love you want to receive. Be Eucharist for others.

Beth Solis, a group facilitator in Oklahoma, says, "Our members asked us in the beginning if we minded taking things slowly so we could have time to really discuss each paragraph. We always have such great discussion! The PPT has been very helpful and is a nice addition."

Tim says, "Being the only convert in the group, I ascertained a better and stronger understanding of the importance of the Eucharist, not only in the Mass but also in my daily life."

Jimmy says, "I learned so much about the Eucharist that was powerful and enlightening. This course helped deepen my faith and my appreciation for the Holy Mass."
