3rd Sunday of Easter, A

Jesus' simple presence in the Eucharist


One of the signs of the Resurrected Lord is precisely in the "breaking of the bread" that obviously refers to the Eucharist.  We need to see the signs of the resurrection in the simplicity of Christ's presence.

Eucharistic spirituality is something that affects our outlook on life.  Life is the Eucharist and the Eucharist is life.

The very start the Eucharist starts with "In the name of the Father..." means we are to start and end our lives "in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  How much more if we open our hearts to receive His word in the liturgy of the Word.

Second, Jesus took the loaves, blessed, broke, and gave them to the people.  Our actions reflect the presence of the Lord from participation in the mass to actual life outside the mass.

Third, let us acknowledge Jesus in the Church that is the "Body of Christ."  As Church, let us make sure the Christ's salvific action goes on until He comes again.
