THE CATHOLIC REVIEW: Blessed Are Those Called to the Supper of the Lamb

Studying the Catholic Church’s teaching on the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist
June 16, 2017  |  By DEACON RICK BAUER
As we will soon celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, it has always been a special time in the liturgical year for me. As a former Protestant minister, it was the Eucharist — the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Christ, present in bread and wine, the “source and summit of the Christian life” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 322) that drew me inexorably into the Catholic Church. To receive Holy Communion is still the greatest gift on this earth, and it is always an experience to be treasured.

Some people may wish to “donate their body to science” after they die. Such a gift of themselves can be objectively good and praiseworthy provided that their body would contribute to meaningful research or study, and that it would not be used in a disrespectful or otherwise inappropriate manner.

As we celebrate Father’s Day, we should not forget that all human fatherhood derives from the Fatherhood of God. We speak of God as our Father, and we often use our experience of our earthly fathers to understand God as Father. But always the paradigm is the Eternal Father.

What can be said that conveys the inscrutable transcendence of a pilgrimage to Lourdes? I’m somewhat at a loss, but I’ll try, because although such a journey is not without pain and disappointment, it is the nearest thing to heaven in all the experiences of my lifetime. And such good news must be shared.

FEATURED MOVIE REVIEW: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No TalesNEW YORK.  Iconic and eccentric buccaneer Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) hoists the black flag for a fifth time in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” (PG-13, Disney). The result is a flashy but ultimately unsatisfying journey for the theme park ride-based franchise that first set sail in 2003.

The human body reveals that we are made for a heaven. Our bodies teach us things about intimate human relationships as well as our ultimate destiny. Human bodies are capable of creating new life, nurturing new life and thus fostering close family bonds, in and through the body.

I have always loved the Acts of the Apostles and have often recommended it to those who are approaching the Bible for the first time. Filled with colorful narratives, adventure, martyrdom, persecution, journeys by sea, etc., it makes for stimulating reading indeed. But I love it especially because it shows us the excitement of being a follower of Jesus. Long before there were parishes and dioceses and the Vatican and other institutional structures, there was this band of brothers and sisters who were so overwhelmed and energized by the fact of the resurrection that they went careening around the world and to their deaths with the message of Jesus.
