The Feast of Corpus Christi (Jn. 6:51-58)

The Feast of Corpus Christi invites us to meditate on the most precious gift that is given to us.  Not a gift in the usual sense that one is given, but from the point of view that it is the gift of the invitation by God to full communion with Him.  God invites us to become one with Him, as He becomes one with us, when we receive the Body and Blood of Christ: “he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him” (Jn. 6:56). This is a mystery that is beyond our full comprehension, and a reality that we cannot just simply pass by or skip over!  It is the most important and beautiful reality on earth.

Dr Brown has been involved in many aspects of the New Evangelisation in the US, Ireland and elsewhere.
