Reflection for June 11, 2023

Receive the Body and Blood of Christ

What do you do with these life-changing gifts? 

by Sister Agnes Fischer

If I eat of this bread, I will have life.

  • This life which lets me smile even when my wages don’t cover expenses or my health is not as perfect as I would wish.
  • This life which gives me strength to be honest in business and responsible in labor.
  • This life which keeps me energized and in love with my spouse and family.
  • This life which helps me bear my infirmity or the loss of a loved one.
  • This love which overcomes disappointment and pardons offenses.
  • This love which enables me to sacrifice for others.

Because: “If you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you will live in me and I in you.” (John 6:56)

Sister Agnes,

Beautiful reflection for Corpus Christi Sunday. I never thought of it quite this way but when I receive Jesus (God) in Holy Communion I am receiving God and God is Love so I am receiving Love and that Love helps me through the daily grind of life.

Thank you and God Bless all the Sisters.
