Weekly Reflection

This is my Body that is For You

06-23-2019We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 44, No. 2

God always wants to feed us. From bread and wine that Melchizedek shared with Abraham to manna and quail in the desert, from loaves and fish for the crowd to Jesus’ own Body and Blood offered at the Last Supper and repeatedly ever since. God has ensured that humanity’s hunger is satisfied. This sustenance is shared by everyone: rescuers and the rescued, the curious and the faithful. All have eaten of food given to us by God. But it is more than just food that has sustained us. For Abraham, who had just rescued his family from an enemy army, the bread and wine were also an acknowledgment that he had been blessed by God. For the Israelites, discontented and disconsolate in the desert, the manna was also a sign of hope. For the crowd who had followed Jesus to that deserted place, the meal was also a sign of Jesus’ power and generosity. For the disciples at the Last Supper, the bread and wine were Jesus’ own Body and Blood, to be sacrificed for our salvation. This is the meal Jesus commanded be repeated perpetually in his name, so that thousands of years later, we here today, receive the same sustenance and promise that his disciples did at the first Eucharist.

How do you feel nourished when you receive Christ in the Eucharist?

Esto es mi Cuerpo, que se entrega por Ustedes

Dios siempre quiere alimentarnos. Desde el pan y el vino que Melquisedec compartió con Abraham hasta el maná y las codornices en el desierto, desde los panes y los peces para la multitud hasta el Cuerpo y la Sangre de Jesús ofrecidos en la Última Cena y repetidamente desde entonces. Dios ha asegurado que se satisfaga el hambre de la humanidad. Este sustento es compartido por todos: rescatistas y rescatados, curiosos y fieles. Todos hemos comido del alimento que Dios nos ha dado. Pero es más que solo comida lo que nos ha sostenido. Para Abraham, que acababa de rescatar a su familia de un ejército enemigo, el pan y el vino también eran un símbolo de que había sido bendecido por Dios. Para los israelitas, descontentos y desconsolados en el desierto, el maná también fue un signo de esperanza. Para la multitud que había seguido a Jesús a ese lugar desierto, la comida también fue una señal del poder y la generosidad de Jesús. Para los discípulos en la Última Cena, el pan y el vino eran el Cuerpo y la Sangre de Jesús, para ser sacrificados por nuestra salvación. Esta es la comida que Jesús ordenó que fuera repetida perpetuamente en su nombre, de modo que miles de años más tarde, nosotros aquí hoy, recibamos el mismo sustento y promesa que sus discípulos tuvieron en la primera Eucaristía.

¿Cómo te sientes nutrido cuando recibes a Cristo en la Eucaristía?
