Corpus Christi Sunday
Corpus Christi Sunday is an auspicious occasion in the Anderson household. In addition to commemorating the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, for the Anderson family it also commemorates our communion with the Catholic Church.
On Corpus Christi Sunday 5 years ago, Sarah and I entered the Catholic Church. It was an especially meaningful day for me to enter the Church because my decision to become Catholic had been guided by my belief in the Real Presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.
And 3 years ago on Corpus Christi Sunday, our then-infant daughter Mary Virginia also entered the Church when she received the Sacrament of Baptism.
May the Body and Blood of Christ bring us to everlasting life. Amen.
