Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ
This coming Sunday, Jesus tells us that anyone who eats the bread that he offers will live forever. Jesus is the living bread which has come down from heaven and that anyone who eats this bread will live forever. Every time we come to Mass, the bread and wine are changed into the body and blood of Jesus. And we come to share in it, even if we only have a blessing, welcoming Jesus into our lives. Unfortunately, we are unable to share in this special sacrament at this current time due to the Covid 19 pandemic. However, we are all encouraged to make a Spiritual Communion when we desire to be in union with Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. This can be done whilst watching a live stream of Mass being offered. One prayer that we can say is: My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
