Sunday Sermon and Other Stuff

15 Jun

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

Another exciting and busy morning, rolling out of bed, walking ten steps into the family room, and watching Mass in my pajamas. So exhausting!

Today’s Gospel on this Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ Sunday is from John 6:51-58.

“I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

My take on it… just like bread is a simple and basic way to sustain our bodies, the consecrated bread is a simple way to nourish our souls. Christ said that consuming the blessed bread and wine was the same as His flesh and blood, allowing us to live forever, instead of temporarily. A very difficult concept to comprehend, but true faith doesn’t require absolute comprehension.

The rest of my Sunday, I was busy doing squats… DIDDLY SQUATS! A very lazy day. Bit, the day is still young. Oops! No it isn’t. It’s after 7 pm. The day is done. But, I will get out for an evening walk shortly.

Happy Sunday, my friends.
