Catholic TV Mass Online June 14, 2020: Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Presider: Fr. Matthew Widder
Parish: Holy Name of Jesus, St. Clement & St. Dominic
Choir: St James

Usually in our parishes in the months mid April to May one of the great celebrations at our parishes are children receiving their first Holy Communion and adults being received into the church and receiving their first Holy Communion. We think of those kids receiving communion. There's like an incredible hunger. There's an incredible excitement to receive their first Holy Communion. And it doesn't just start in preparing for first Communion, it usually starts in the moment they’re about 1 or 2 years old. I think of all the times I've been distributing communion and there's a 1 or 2 year old in mom or dad's hands and the child reaches out. I think of a 3 year old at one of the parishes I'm at that she'll say, "I want the God food." She knows, she knows already and then of course with those kids receiving their first Holy Communion, what happens that when they see their brother or sister receive their first Holy Communion, and they can still only go up and get a blessing and not receive then all of a sudden there's even a bit of jealousy so by the time they receive their first Holy Communion, there's this incredible desire, there's an incredible hunger to receive communion, just wanting and yearning to receive Jesus in the most blessed sacrament. And it's interesting because within this coronavirus that we've experienced and gone through, in some sense all of us are making a first Holy Communion all over again. In some sense, I know throughout the world and in our diocese, throughout the United States, many places have not been able to receive communion, people have not been able to receive communion forever. Maybe where you're participating in this Mass right now, you still might not be able to receive Holy Communion. And what comes about that? In some sense it's like making our first Holy Communion. Placing ourselves back in those days when we were preparing and we could not wait. And it's interesting because as God took the Israelites through the desert, we hear about that in the book of Deuteronomy, God said “I directed you so as to test you by affliction.” To test you by affliction. Now we think of a teacher, a teacher does not give a test so the students fail. A test is given to succeed. And what does it say? It lets you be afflicted by hunger and that I fed you with manna. There's something about hunger that brings out a desire. When there's a hunger and a desperation to look towards God our heart is so much more ready to receive him. We think of this whole situation, we know that God has not left us and we think of our communion and our wanting to receive Jesus. We might to use maybe I don't want to compare the eucharist to regular, ordinary food, but sometimes when we eat we eat more as a hobby. We think of those times when sometimes we have nothing more to do so we pull out a bag of chips, right? It's a hobby. It's not from a hunger. It's not from a desperation to get food. And sometimes even within the context of Mass and receiving communion we can receive it more as a hobby. Something that just, it's that part of the Mass. I think what this has done, is it's restored our yearning for Jesus, our desperation to receive Jesus. And so we make a spiritual communion and we ask God to fill us that he still strengthens us but we yearn and we look forward to making that first Holy Communion all over again and we ask God to flood us with his grace, to strengthen us and to show us just how present he is in this most blessed sacrament. The greatest gift of our faith.
