The Heart of our faith

Today’s gospel takes us through layers of history and tradition to a mystery so deep, we tremble. We are not reading about something that happened thousands of years ago. Jesus’ body and blood is our ongoing now. In receiving him he becomes one with us, and in that oneness, his body becomes ours. Like bread, we are blessed. Then we are broken so that we can be given out to the world. This is the way of the cross, the way from hate to love, from emptiness to fullness, from death to life.
