Today is the feast of Corpus Christi. We celebrate another one of those great mysteries, which Our Saviour has left us. It is the Sacrament of He’s presence among us and so fulfilling the promise that He made as He departed visibly from our world, behold I am with you always even to the end of the age. And sadly in our days we do not appreciate the greatness of this sacrament and its mystery is disappearing from our consciousness and we see the sacrament violated and treated as ordinary bread. Sadly this means in many cases, sacrilege and consequently we see its effects which is a laceration of the Church, laceration of the Body of Christ. Even as He was scourged on the very day, the night He was betrayed and the day of His crucifixion. But we shouldn’t be surprised for as the head is gone, so necessarily the body follows as well. What is a Sacrament? This is the question we need to ask and the question we need to answer, if we are to avoid this great violation, abuse of the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord. A Sacrament, as we read in the Catechism, is an outward sign, of an inward grace, inward reality that it signifies and it effects. Not only does the Sacrament signify the reality but it actually brings the reality in to existence… For Fr. Linus’ complete homily please listen to the Audio.
