    gave thanks, and gave it to them,
    and they all drank from it.
    He said to them, 
    “This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many.
    Amen, I say to you, I shall not drink again the fruit of the vine until the day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”

  •   Inspiration of 
    the Week

    As we gather today
    to reaffirm
    our faith in the
    Real Presence of Christ
    in the Eucharist,
    we are reminded
    that we are also 
    the Body of Christ.
    The mission of the Gospel calls us to be Christ for others. There is so much brokenness and pain in our world. Many people are lost and feeling lonely, marginalized and oppressed, victimized and abused. Every time we receive the Body (and Blood) of Christ, we are asked to become what we eat. Are we willing to step aside from our preoccupations and concerns so that we can be Christ for others?
    The power and presence of Christ in the Eucharist becomes present in us. In receiving this transforming
    presence of Christ, we can truly effect change in the lives of those we meet. We can show them God’s unconditional, ever-present love
    and the beauty that can come from loving others. We are given the grace to become temples of justice
    and peace, carrying God’s sacred Presence within us wherever we go.

  • Let God Be 
    Who God Is

    Inspiration for the Week

    The immensity, scope, intimacy, 
    and pervasiveness of God’s presence is too intense for the human 
    We often limit God by
    our expectations of Him
    and have a hard time
    just letting God be God.
    Some people all too easily lose faith because God does not
    meet their expectations.
    Worse still,
    the idea of faith is rejected altogether by others because of polarities and experiences they have that don’t square with
    who they need God to be.
    The Holy Trinity is one of those teachings that is best encountered rather than dissected.
    It is only through being present with the Trinity that we can experience both the immensity and otherness of God’s presence as well as the intimacy of the God who wants us to call Him “dad.”
    We feel the loving guidance of a God who wants to take us from fear and give us confidence.
    Our God of yesterday, today, and tomorrow is a God of all ages whose three-fold Presence invades all senses, seasons, and times.
    who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is much more than any of our expectations if we simply
    let God be who God is.
