This Is My Body

Readings for Sunday, June 2 — Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Ex 24:3-8; Ps 116:12-13, 15-16, 17-18; Heb 9:11-15; Jn 6:51; Mk 14:12-16, 22-26 

Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • What does the Eucharist mean to you? Recall an experience at Mass when you felt close to God.
  • What are your biggest challenges in getting to Mass on Sunday? What are the biggest challenges for you in being part of a community of faith?
  • In the psalm today, we hear that our bonds have been loosened. What has been keeping you down or holding you back? Discuss a time in your life when you felt truly freed by Christ.
  • Jesus gave us his body and blood out of total love for us. We remember this ultimate act of love each time we celebrate Mass. When have you totally given yourself in love? When has someone given themselves in love for you?
