The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Being the Body of Christ for Others

In every celebration of the Eucharist, bread and wine are transformed into the Body and Blood of Christ. How does reception of the Body and Blood of Christ transform us? How do we become the Body and Blood of Christ given to others? What is it that we give to others when we leave the Mass each Sunday?

Perhaps the answers to those questions require other questions? What is it that we hunger and thirst for each time we gather for Mass? What are the hungers of the world today? Who is available to feed those hungers if not us? St. Teresa of Avila reminds us:

Christ Has No Body

Christ has no body but yours,

No hands, no feet on earth but yours,

Yours are the eyes with which he looks

Compassion on this world,

Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,

Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.

Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,

Yours are the eyes, you are his body.

Christ has no body now but yours,

No hands, no feet on earth but yours,

Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassion on this world.

Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
