Find Ourselves With God:

To find ourselves with God in a heart-to-heart encounter, to love and allow ourselves to be loved. This is the secret of every Christian open to the Good News of Jesus Christ. The secret of all who say yes to the gentle appeal, “Would you be so kind as to come here?”

Love of God - Faith:

In today's Gospel, Jesus teaches us to love Him through concrete deeds, words and ways of loving our neighbour. The essence of 'salt' in our faith is to bring Jesus' Peace and Love to others. Are we being the 'salt' of God to others daily?


There is a very close relationship between "building the Eucharist" and proclaiming Christ. At the same time, entering into communion with him in the memorial of Easter also means becoming missionaries of the event which that rite actualizes; in a certain sense, it means making it contemporary with every epoch, until the Lord comes again. We are reliving this wonderful reality in today's Solemnity of Corpus Christi, during which the Church does not only celebrate the Eucharist but solemnly bears it in procession, publicly proclaiming that the Sacrifice of Christ is for the salvation of the whole world.

- Pope John Paul II (June 10, 2004)
