Corpus Christi: Communion is also about Community

This weekend we are celebrating Corpus Christi, the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.  This is a feast that focuses on Christ in the Eucharist who is “Blessed, Broken, Taken and Given” to us as food for our journey.  It is a feast which celebrates communion, but it also celebrates community.

In the gospel today we will hear in Luke about the foretaste of the Eucharist as Jesus gathers thousands together and feeds them with the loaves and the fishes.  This was food to be shared by the community.  The message is clear, we do not experience our faith in isolation.  We are part of something larger than ourselves and it must be shared. It is about being united in love for Christ, love for the Eucharist, fidelity to the gospels.  It is about sharing a common bond of faith and belief.  And it is about taking Christ, quite literally into ourselves, and then out into the world.

It is with that focus that we will be blessing at Masses this weekend those who have participated in parish ministries, as well as those who have recently signed up to participate in ministries at our recent Ministry Fair. This community responded very well to the call of Stewardship-Living Our Faith Daily, by submitting over 300 forms to identify ministries where you would like to serve.  We have worked hard to get the ministry leads the names of all of those who signed up so that they could reach out to everyone.  We were thrilled at all the new names who signed up for ministry work for the first time!  That is a blessing and a response to the call of Christ.
