It has been called the sum and summit of the Christian life. It is the body and blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and it is the meal that leads to everlasting life. How sad it is that so many of our Catholic brothers and sisters do not pray regularly, do not go to Mass regularly, and worst of all do not receive the Holy Eucharist on a regular basis.
Brothers and sisters:
I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you,
that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over,
took bread, and, after he had given thanks,
broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.”
In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”
For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup,
you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.
Jesus gave his life that we might live. He gave us his body and blood so that we can be saved. Go to Mass often. Receive the Eucharist often. Your life will be strengthened by his grace. The answer to the problems of life is right in front of you.
Take and eat. Take and drink. It can change your heart and mind.
