Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - Corpus Christi Sunday B, June 14th, 2009

Read Mark 14:12-26

1) Today's feast is called "Corpus Christi", which means the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ. What then are we celebrating? (Hint- it begins with an "E")

2) Jesus says that His Flesh ("Body") is true food and His Blood is true drink. That means that when we eat Holy Communion we don't eat bread and wine at all, because both have been totally changed into Jesus' Body and Blood. So is it wrong to call the Holy Eucharist just "bread and wine?"

3) Jesus says the same words at Mass that He said at the Last Supper! Do you know that every Mass you are really part of the Last Supper, Jesus' Death, and His return from death (His Resurrection)? Could anything in this whole world be more important than Holy Mass?
