If the Lord isn't trying to get our attention the Liturgists certainly are! For three weeks in a row our response “taste and see the goodness of the Lord” is echoed. Prayerfully it is echoing in our hearts and drawing us more deeply into the One we receive, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. It’s not like, taste and see if you like it but rather what is there not to like in Jesus. Truly His Body is real food, His Blood is real drink and in sharing this heavenly banquet we receive a unique blessing of becoming what we receive. Sadly in our day many have walked away from this bread of life, just as they did in John's chapter 6. Human nature hasn't changed much but you and I can be radically changed into the presence of Christ to one another. We can become his goodness to one another, being good and doing well for others. We have that blessed assurance of Jesus when He says “whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.” Let us strive to be Jesus to one another, empowered with His Holy Spirit. Blessings of peace, Fr. Dan
