Family dinners – be they big or small – touch our hearts in a number of ways:
- Nourish our bodies with wholesome, plentiful food
- Unite us together, setting aside our differences for a moment of peace
- Empower our lives, for service in the world
The same is true when we come to the Lord’s table at every Mass. We are nourished with Christ’s Body & Blood. We are united as the People of God – as brothers and sisters, neighbors and friends. We are empowered to go forth, touching the hearts of those we meet with the grace and peace of Jesus Christ.
May our reception of Holy Communion feed our souls, foster unity, and empower us to live our lives for the Lord!
