Video – Fr. Bonaventure – Homily: Feast of Corpus Christi
On the Feast of Corpus Christi, we celebrate the Mystery of mysteries: the changing of bread and wine into the true body and blood of Christ Jesus.
Still today, many people outside of and even inside the Church do not appreciate the spiritual and physical miracle of the Eucharist. The summit of our Faith is the Eucharist, and faith is greatest at the moment of transubstantiation, when the whole substance of bread and wine is truly, physically changed into the Body and Blood of Christ. We do not compromise on or apologize for this teaching, for it's origin is the Word of God Himself, Jesus Christ. The children of God,the body of Christ, participate and assist in the saving mission of the Son of God through reception of the Eucharist, as did Our Mother, Mary Coredemptrix, before us. Through Him and in Him, with the help of Our Lady, we become lights of the world, little co-redeemers who share in the life and the mission of God.
Let us now listen to this wonderful homily given by Fr. Bonaventure on this holy feast.
