Body and Blood of Christ - B (June 3, 2018)

Divine Presence – Past, Present, and Eternal

Last Sunday, we celebrated one of the presences of the Most Holy Trinity in space and time.  That is the presence of God in us as children of God.

Today, we celebrate the same divine presence in the Eucharist. 

In the Eucharist, we who live in time and space come in touch with the Presence of the Divine who no time nor space can contain. 

The Body and Blood of Christ is “the covenant” (Gospel – Mark 14:24) makes present to us now the death of Christ on the cross, “a death [that] has taken place for deliverance from transgression” and “the promised eternal inheritance.”  (2nd Reading – Hebrew 9:15)
