Amen Corner: Sunday Stewardship Inspiration

Embody Jesus

This Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. Nothing could be more precious to a Catholic than receiving the taste of heaven that is the holy Eucharist. Once received, the true presence of the Body of Christ becomes part of us, and we become part of it. We literally become the Body of Christ. We embody Jesus. He came once in person to live among us. He comes now in our person to live through us. As imperfect as we are individually and together as the Church, we carry the perfect, sacrificial, and redemptive love of Jesus who is incarnate within us. Can we see the sacred within each other who have received and become the Body of Christ? Will we humbly, lovingly and boldly embody Jesus?
