FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
In 1263, a German priest named Peter of Prague was having serious doubts about the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. So, he decided to make a pilgrimage to Rome to pray for guidance,. On the way he celebrated Mass in the town of Bolsena. As he held the Host and said the words of consecration, blood started to seep from the host onto his hands and onto the linen cloth on the altar which we call the corporal. Naturally, he was confused. He made his way to Rome, to Pope Urban, to have the matter investigated. No natural explanation could be found and the corporal is still on display in the Cathedral of Orvieto. This Eucharistic miracle led the Pope to establish the feast we celebrate today - “The Body and Blood of Christ.”
The miracle, I believe, is a reminder to you and me that just like the priest who was having doubts and trials, we too have Jesus in the in the Blessed Sacrament by our side as we journey through life.
“I am the Bread of Life” said Jesus. I will always be here to nourish you, to console you, to strengthen you even in your darkest moments. That is the promise and the power and the reality of the Eucharist. Jesus is truly present in Holy Communion.
A few years ago, I read “The Hiding Place” which tells the story of a Christian Lutheran family who lived their faith amidst the horror of imprisonment in a concentration camp. It is the story of Corrie TenBoom and her sister Betsie and their family. Listen to some of their thoughts as they lived the horror of war and the death camps.
“There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.” “When we are feeling poorest, when we have lost friends, when we have nothing left in the world to make it beautiful - that is when God says “You are richer that you think.” “Jesus is Victor.”
When I read those words, I could not help
but think of the Mass during which we come face to face with the Son
of God who comes to us personally in Communion. Let us never take this
miracle for granted. Let us not doubt the Real Presence. We have His
words for its truth. Let us give thanks for the awesome gift of the
Bread of Life which sustains our every moment.
