What is the Holy Eucharist?

The Holy Eucharist is a sacrament and a sacrifice. In the Holy Eucharist, under the appearance of bread and wine, the Lord Christ is contained, offered and received. Like all sacraments it is a SIGN OF CHRIST. But unlike the other sacraments, the Eucharist is not only an ACTION OF CHRIST, but also really CONTAINS CHRIST PERSONALLY. The Eucharist is truly the Body and Blood of Christ.

 

How was our Lord able to change bread and wine into His Body and Blood?

Our Lord was able to change bread and wine into His Body and Blood by His almighty power. This change of bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ continues to be made in the Church by Jesus Christ, through the ministry of His priests.

 

When did Christ give His priests power to change bread and wine into his Body and Blood?

Christ gave His priests the power to change bread and wine into His Body and Blood when He made the apostles priests at the Last Supper by saying to them: “Do this in memory of Me.”

 

Why does Christ give us His own Body and Blood in the Holy Eucharist?

Christ gives us His own Body and Blood in the Eucharist: First, to be offered as a sacrifice

commemorating and renewing for all time the sacrifice of the Cross.

Second, to be received by the faithful in Holy Communion; Third, to remain ever on our altars as proof of His love for us, and to be worshiped by us.

THE CHURCH CLOTHED BY HER DIVINE FOUNDER

The widely published adversary and slander to theCatholic Church wherein the in-coming President Rodrigo Duterte used language loaded with strong emotional overtones against the Catholic Church prompted me toreact. I have nothing but goodwill and love for men of every faith and belief and I do not engage in parroting statements of thoughtless remarks.

The Catholic Church is not hypocrite and she is not conclusive or dictatorial as stated by Mr. Duterte. The Catholic Church has been clothed by her Founder, Jesus Christ, with authority to teach “all nations”.

ANTONIA

I went to visit my friend Antonia over the weekend.  Antonia sat alone.  Her hands, wrinkled with age, rested in her lap.  She wore her finest dress.

 

Her bedroom wall spoke of family:  an enlargement of grandson Jason hugging Brando, the terrier, a framed portrait of her son Enrique, the doctor, and his family now living in Canada.  Antonia and her late husband cutting their fiftieth wedding anniversary cake.  “It would have been sixty years next June.”

PREPARING FOR PLACE

On the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit has fully come, the apostles and those that were with them in the Upper Room experience such ecstasy.  It was a journey.  They were all of one mind and heart, all of one accord with each other and with God.

 

In reality, man has been waiting for the experience of Pentecost.  We have been waiting a long time for God to do something in our lives, and we yield fully to Him.
