Preparing for Corpus Christi

As we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Our Lord, and pray for our children receiving Holy Communion for the first time, you might like to take a look at this video about the Mass. It is by an American youth evangelist and is hard-hitting, almost shocking in places. It is, however, totally true to the teaching of the Lord and his Church about the Eucharist. I hope it may challenge us to a fresh understanding of our Catholic faith in this Sacrament, which the Second Vatican Council tells us is 'the source and summit of the Christian life'.
