Before Eating Ask Yourself This Question (#720, Holy Thursday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Mass of the Lord’s Supper • Every Catholic priest is descended from the Last Supper. Though none of us are worthy we all share in the priesthood of Jesus Christ. In a different but no less important way, every Christian shares in the priesthood of Jesus Christ. Christ continues to be present through the Eucharist and through charity. His presence is an invitation. Before you take from His table ask yourself: am I prepared to return the gift — will I lay down my life?

Point to Ponder: We know that the Eucharist is the Real Presence of Jesus, but when did Jesus’ presence become Real for you?

Point to Discuss: Priesthood is above all a ministry of sacrifice, intercession, and sanctification. Talk with a spiritual friend about what it means for you to sacrifice, intercede, and sanctify.
