Of course, one can easily just go through the motions and at the end of it, be satisfied that it was a 'job done'. Christ, on the other hand, did not treat Calvary as merely a 'job done', but over and above everything else, it was 'love done'. More and more, and I am not sure if it is because I am now past 50 years of age, or because I had the wonderful gift of the cancer episode, I am brought to a deeper ...http://frlukefong.blogspot.com/2017/06/at-heart-of-priesthood-is-eucharist-at.html

Corpus Christi: Surprised by Love LIVING SACRIFICE - June 18, 2017 ... We soon discover there is a multitude of neuroses and much dysfunction in that family! At times, some of the characters are entrenched in gravely immoral behavior that brings them very far from God.

What, after all, is so great about a faith that seems to have little or no impact on the people that profess it? But, of course, Charles gradually discovers that ...http://fathermahars.blogspot.com/2017/06/corpus-christi-surprised-by-love.html

Sunday Word, 18 Jun 17 TO FIND FRUIT - June 18, 2017 ... Body and Blood of Christ Jesus. Yet we celebrate more than flesh and blood. We celebrate his person not parts of him; when we are with another we sense that more is present than physical parts. Each of us is a mystery that way. The mystery of Jesus is richer: he continues to give himself for us; in word and sacrament he is more present to us by his spirit; he invites us to share his life in ...http://findfruit.blogspot.com/2017/06/sunday-word-18-jun-17.html

Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 6/18 A CONCORD PASTOR COMMENTS - June 17, 2017 Image source 46 years ago when I was in the seminary, a good friend asked me what I believed about the Eucharist.

If ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/05/reflection-for-pentecost-sunday.html
