The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ

Mark 14:12-16,22-26

In the beginning of today’s Gospel, Jesus instructs his disciples to make preparations for the Passover meal. Like most meals, the Passover meal required planning and preparation. Our celebration of the Sunday Eucharist also requires planning and preparation. Certainly the ministers at the Eucharist prepare for their roles: the person presiding prays and prepares the homily; the prayers of petition are written; the music ministers prayerfully select music and practice it before Mass; Eucharistic ministers, lectors and altar servers prepare carefully for their roles. As the worshiping assembly, we can also prepare for the Mass through our prayer during the week, by reading the Scripture before Mass, and by making ourselves present to the Eucharistic celebration.

Gospel Reflection for Kids
Today’s Gospel tells the story of the Last Supper, the first time Jesus gave us the gift of his Body and Blood in the Eucharist. At every Mass, we remember and celebrate again what Jesus did for us, what Jesus gave us, what Jesus calls us to be. When you celebrate Eucharist each week, what are some things for which you are thankful?

Dispensation to Attend Mass Ends
On June 1, 2021, Bishop Foys sent a letter to all parishes lifting the dispensation to attend Sunday Mass effective 12 June 2021. As Bishop Foys states in his letter, "Since for all practical purposes almost all restrictions have been lifted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as well as by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, it is time that we as Catholics 'get back to normal' and once again make Sunday Mass a regular part of our lives." You can read the entire letter here.
