Corpus Christi Sunday

June 6, 2010

BEYOND THE PHYSICAL

Many people find the Eucharist hard to understand or believe.  How does bread become body?  In the simplest of terms, terms are precisely the problem.  We do not have the metaphysical language that society used to understand and so we are confused.

At the heart of the Eucharist is a question of what is real?

We must see beyond the physicality of our world and each other if we are to understand who and what we really are.

This Sunday is an invitation for us to see the story in each other, beyond our physical attributes.  It is also an invitation to better understand our own body and its connect to our soul.

Join us as we break open the Eucharist this Sunday so that we may understand it as more than just bread.

  1. Dear Father Chris,

    Would you please email me the author and title of the book from your homily of June 6th at St. Kenneth. I believe you said the author was Stafford and I thought the title had “Wakening” in it. I wasn’t able to download your homily so I could not get the information on the book you referenced. Thanking you in advance.

    Hope all is well with you and your travels.
