    Reflections

    for Sunday, May 29, 2016

    The Lord feeds us! This is the basic reality of our lives. The Lord feeds us with Himself, with spiritual food, and the Lord is present every moment of our lives. Our Lord is not a magician and so does not magically fix the brokenness of our lives. Instead, Jesus promises always to be with us, in Sacrament, in Word, in every moment of our daily lives.

    The first reading today is from the Book of Genesis and is given to us simply because Abram (later Abraham) receives bread and wine from Melchizedek. This figure of Melchizedek appears out of nowhere and disappears again, never to be heard of after this short appearance in Scripture. Melchizedek becomes the symbol of a righteous king who appears and disappears - and in that sense lives forever. We moderns are no so open to such symbols, but even in modern life, we use symbols. Melchizedek is King of Righteousness - that is he stands for all that is right and good in life. Melchizedek brings gifts of bread and wine and thus we Christians see in him a prefiguration of Jesus, coming unexpectedly to save us.

    The second reading is from the First Letter to the Corinthians and gives us an account of the institution of the Eucharist - the giving thanks with bread and wine which mystically and really makes present for us, in us and in our world, the great sacrifice of redemption of our Lord Jesus. Even after all these centuries, none of us can fully grasp the incredible gift that Jesus gives us of Himself in this transformation of bread and wine into His own body and blood.

    The Gospel is from Saint Luke and is about feeding the multitude. No one believed that Jesus could feed that immense amount of people with just five loaves and two fish. Very few today believe that Jesus truly feeds us and the millions that come to him with His own body and blood in the gifts of bread and wine brought to the Eucharistic celebration.

    Corpus Christi, this great celebration of the Body and Blood of the Lord, celebrates this gift of Jesus to us. You and I can receive this gift. We ask for faith each day so that we continue to believe that Jesus does truly love us so much that He has given Himself for us once and for all and that this gift is ours every time that we participate in the Holy Eucharist. Jesus is present. Our faith calls us to participate. May this sharing in the Body and Blood of the Lord unite us with all peoples of all times - but especially now in our service of the poor and of one another.

     
    Readings of the day:
    First Reading: Genesis 14.18-20
    Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 11.23-26
    Gospel: Luke 9.11b-17

    Homily from Abbot Philip, OSB, of the Benedictine Abbey of Christ in the Desert.
