A Matter of Life and Death
Why a feast in honor of the Eucharist? Isn’t every Mass a celebration of the Eucharist? Sometimes we can allow ourselves to take the Eucharist for granted and not give Jesus the reverence and love that we should. That’s why we need a special feast like this. St. Paul reminds us that the Eucharist is serious business, life and death business, as we also hear in the sequence today. Let’s do our best each day to prepare well to receive Jesus and allow him to form us more perfectly into his family, the Body of Christ.
