Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Jesus’s words over the bread and wine, then sharing it with his disciples, signifies his giving them a share in the atoning power of his death.  And that atoning power has as its goal eternal life with Jesus.  But it was not just those who sat at the table with Jesus who are able to share in the atoning power of Jesus’s sacrifice; Jesus opened the way for all to share in the “eternal inheritance”.  So walk with joy to share a forestate of the unending banquet.
