Pastor's Message

The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ was the first Mass I celebrated after my ordination to the priest-hood 12 years ago this past June 10th. Certainly, as this was my first Mass this Solemnity has special importance to me, but most importantly this celebration emphasizes for us the greatest gift of our faith, the Most Holy Eucharist.

The Eucharist is the source and summit of our Catholic Faith, as stated by the Catechism. The Body and Blood of Christ is the means by which we are saved. The Gospel of St. John reflects for us the astounding beauty of the mystery of the Eucharist, and the necessity of our partaking of the Eucharist to accept and receive the gift of Salvation from Jesus Christ.

The Jews and even disciples of Jesus did not understand these words of Jesus and many refused the gift of the Eucharist. Despite the rejection of many, Jesus remains clear about the Eucharist and its importance for us. “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.” Many followers of Jesus found this saying too difficult and challenging to accept; it was beyond their understanding. It remains challenging for us to understand as well; it can only be received by faith and trust in Jesus.

Let us remain steadfast in our commitment to Christ and recognize through faith that the Eucharist we celebrate at Mass is Jesus’ answer to the incredulity of the people of his time and of ours; to those who say, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” The bread and wine we bless and share is a sharing and partaking of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ bringing salvation to all who eat!
