Letters From A Pastor to His People †June 23, 2019
We celebrate Corpus Christi today. The Eucharist is the real body and blood of Christ our Savior, which means the Eucharist is powerful. It has a real effect on us. There are three things the Eucharist does, each corresponding with one of the readings.
In the First Reading, from the Book of Genesis†we have a story about Melchizedek King of Salem (early name for Jerusalem) who comes to greet Abram by returning from a victorious battle. Melchizedek who is also a priest blesses Abram with bread and wine. The bread and wine are taken to prefigure the bread and wine of the Eucharistic sacrifice that celebrate Jesusvictory over death, evil and sin, and enable us to remember our union with Jesus.
In a previous issue I talked about a spiritual relationship between obedience, poverty, and chastity, and faith, hope, and love.
In this issue I want to say more on this pairing, to provide food for fruitful meditation throughout the week. This might sound like a broken record, but actually its the heart of the matter its the firm foundation, Jesus Christ revealed to us what it means to be human, and that is to love. Our Blessed Lord taught the teaching of Torah, treat one another as you want to be treated. The greatest way we can treat people and ourselves is with love. Good, but what about our relationship with God?
