The feast of Corpus Christi is more than a reminder that Jesus is indeed the Bread of Life. It is also a celebration of his generous hospitality. When he feeds the multitudes, we see his warm welcome to those who had come to hear him speak about God.(Matthew 15: 29 -37)
They were drawn to him, attracted by his loving kindness. Their desire for what he had to give, the food of the spirit, was strong and he gave it to them in abundance. And yet, although he knew that they hungered for more than simple bread, he did not ignore their physical needs.
Today is also the feast of St. Anthony. He is the patron saint of lost souls.
Therefore, let us dedicate today and pledge to cultivate a sense hospitality towards other especially in preparing for the next CHOICE weekend. We also seek the intercession of St. Anthony to bring back lost souls to Jesus.
