Today we recall how Jesus took bread and gave it to his disciples, saying “This is my Body.” He gave his own body over to suffering and death for us. We give thanks for the Eucharist, the
Mass, a celebration that has been happening in communities across the world since the beginning of the Church. The Mass celebrates and commemorates the death and resurrection of Jesus. We come to Mass for healing, to be saved, to be part of the people of God.
