Monthly Reflection
"....Eucharist is not only about remembrance, but about action. 'DO this...' Jesus said. Be activebelievers. In today'sGospel, after a day of teaching and healing, Jesus feeds the hungry crowd,starting with just five loaves and two fish. Yet, 'They were all satisfied.' (Luke ) 'Do this,' hesays to us; not only transform bread and wine into my body and blood, but BE transformed, BEmy body in a world that hungers in so many ways. All these hungers will never be fully satisfieduntil we enter into eternal life, but each day in this life I am called, you are called, to be corpusChristi, body of Christ," Sr. Marie Lucey, OSF; Franciscan Action Network, email May 27, 2013For more prayer and reflection resources from CCUSA, clickhere.
