    June 3, 2018 Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (B)

    Ex 24:3–8; Heb 9:11–15; Mk 14:12–16, 22–26 A beautiful painting by Giovanni Bellini shows the great

    care and reverence with which Joseph, Nicodemus, and Mary Magdalene place the body of Christ in the tomb. Yet it is also a symbol of the delicacy and devotion with which we should receive Jesus, who comes down to us on the altar at Mass.

    His Body and Blood were shed to create a New Covenant, a new pact of love between God and people. In the Old Testament, God ordered that the blood of sacri- ficed animals be sprinkled on the people as a way to seal a pact with him, thus gaining forgiveness of their sins. As if to say, may I be as this calf or goat if I ever fail to obey and live up to your commands.

    In the New Covenant, God sent his own Son to be the sacrificial victim to seal our covenant of love with the Fa- ther. Before the blood was sprinkled, we consume his Body and Blood in the Eucharist as Jesus commanded: Do this in memory of me. Take this, all of you, and eat. Take this, all of you, and drink. If goat blood could express a covenant in the Old Testament, how much more power- ful to unite us with God is the blood of his only begotten Son! How much more powerful to forgive us and commu- nicate Godʼs overpowering love!

    Jesus lays down his life sacramentally again in this Mass. Let us receive his Body and Blood with purity and devotion, aware of the amazing gift and the miracle that happens in our presence.

    The Most Holy Body and Blood of

    Christ (Corpus Christi)

    June 3, 2018

    Introduction to the Liturgy of the Day:

    “This is my body,” we hear in today’s Gospel. “This is my

    blood.” When we gather to celebrate the Eucharist, the sac-

    rifice Jesus made of his own body and blood, the sacrifice

    we are all invited to share, we receive the Body and Blood

    that are truly Christ’s own. Then nourished by his Body and

    Blood, we are called to go forth as the body of Christ, carry-

    ing forward his mission in the world today.
