REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READINGS - HOLY EUCHARIST: THE FOOD OF ETERNAL LIFE - As we celebrate the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, the readings invite us to reflect on the meaning of the Eucharist. The Eucharist symbolizes and actualizes the New Covenant established by Jesus through His redeeming sacrifice on the cross. In today’s Gospel, Jesus satisfies the spiritual yearning of the crowd that gathers to listen to His teachings; but He also commands the Twelve to give them food. They bring Him a small offering of five loaves and two fish, which Jesus blesses and multiplies to feed the hungry Multitude. We who receive the Body and Blood of Christ partake of the eternal life He has gained for us. At the same time, participating in the Eucharist implies that we need to make an effort to become like Jesus Himself. Like the apostles, we place our simple gifts in His hands; through His grace, He will enable us to do much good, more than we could ever imagine.
