THE MASS IS MORE THAN AN OBLIGATION
In recent weeks, we are gradually returning to resume those activities suspended by the Covid 19 pandemic. Among them is the possibility of attending the Eucharist and Mass in person. Although, in recent months we have learned to participate in a virtual way in the Mass, through social networks, we prefer to attend in person, because we feel it closer, it involves us more by listening to the Word of God, by receiving communion, by sharing and greeting our brothers in the community.
In this Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, we are called to give importance to the celebration of the Eucharist in our Christian life. It is a spiritual food that we need; it is Christ himself who makes himself present and tells us that he walks by our side in difficult moments; it is Christ who strengthens us and comforts us when we need him.
Let us therefore avoid living this sacrament as an obligation, something that we have to do by duty. Let's see it, rather as a necessity, as important as the material food that nourishes us and keeps us healthy, this is this spiritual food that we share, the same Body and Blood of Christ, our God and Lord.
