THE WORD THIS WEEK: The Feast of Corpus Christi reminds us of our responsibility to be in communion with the whole body of Christ. There is room for everyone at the divine banquet – especially the poor and the hungry. In today’s Gospel story of the feeding of the five thousand, Jesus refuses to leave anyone hungry. There is more than enough bread for everyone. It is up to all of us to help those in need. Having received Jesus’ body and blood in the Eucharist, we are expected to pass it on – to play our part in feeding the hungry and working for justice.
