Corpus Christi

Posted on Updated on

Originally delivered on June 20, 1992

Readings: Genesis 14:18-20; Paul to the Corinthians 11:23-26; Luke 9:11-17

In this Corpus Christi Sunday, we hear of the feeding of five thousand with a few fish and some loaves of bread, but we are reminded that while the disciples told Jesus to send the people away because the food wasn’t in sufficient quantity. However, it was Jesus who believed and shared what they had.  Through God, faith, and vision, Jesus feeds everyone.  In our world, when do we hear or think that there’s not enough if we share?  Do we have the faith and courage to reorder our priorities? We must, in fact, be willing to be the Body of Christ, to be the Eucharist.  That is, we must be willing to be broken to be a Christlike people.
