The feast we celebrate this weekend, Corpus Christi – body of Christ – reminds us that Christianity, Catholicism, the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, are not theological concepts, courses, things, ideas, passing fancies, symbols – they are a living person, and his name is Jesus Christ. The feast is, in many ways, profound theology, devotion and pushes us, urges us in fact, towards strong action.
St Augustine invokes us to “become the one whom we receive”. The inequality in our society and in our Church reminds us that we have not fully understood (or do not want to understand!) what it means to be the body of Christ – the one whom we receive.
