Homily, Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, June 18, 2017, Fr. Ray Carey


Today’s Gospel, a portion of an important scriptural passage known as the “Bread of Life discourse”, invites us to consider deeply the spirit of today’s Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Following on the heels of a Eucharistic miracle–the feeding of the masses through the multiplication of the loaves–Jesus points his disciples in this part of the chapter to a core belief of our faith: the True Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.
