28th Sunday of the Year: The Lord’s Supper. Catholic Inspiration

Mass Readings – 28th Sunday of the Year

The Eucharist is a banquet that nourishes, celebrates and unites our lives.  Christ himself feeds us with his Body and Blood so that we might grow in grace.  Two simple questions follow from this great gift:

  1. Are we coming?
  2. Are we coming prepared?

For always remember that one day we will stand before the One who is the source of all grace…and what then will we say?
