Corpus Christi, B

Eucharist and the covenant

Mark 14:12-16,22-26 

As we celebrate the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, let us rekindle the covenant we have with God.  He keeps his covenant faithfully, sealing it with the blood of Jesus His Son.

We need to keep our share of the covenant.  As God is faithful, let us also be faithful to Him.  Let us love him and allow ourselves to be transformed into His likeness. 

The blood symbolizes our unity like blood relations in a family. 

The meal symbolizes our solidarity with one another and our ability to be transformed according to His likeness.  Let the whole Church be transformed into the body of Christ!
