IMG_3161This Sunday , in the Holy Land,  we celebrated the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.  For us, Shalom Nazareth, this Solemnity is more special because we are in the place where the Word became flesh, and this is a big grace that feeds our faith. With this Solemnity the Church, our mother, shows us the Eucharist as the perpetual source of Her own, and our, life.
Jesus has promised to stay with us until the end of the world (Matt. 28:20). He is with us in His word, which leads to the Father. He is present, even more, in the Sacrament of His Body and His Blood. This sacrament fills us with the ‘”incarnation” of the Divine Word: God continues to come to stay within us. He does not abandon us and every day we are comforted, sustained and moved by His eucharistic presence in us.
