Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ
by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday June 6, 2021
Why do we always seem to look for happiness in all the wrong places? Whether it's wealth, honor, power, or pleasure the end result is the same -- an empty heart. Is it any wonder why the magic number of wealth, honor, power, and pleasure is always "more"? My pride never gets full; it is a blackhole, an endless pit, a great abyss that can never be satisfied. The great celebration the Church commemorates this Sunday is the surprising and unexpected answer to happiness we've all been searching for. Look closely, however, otherwise your eyes will miss it.
P.S. One of our beloved parishioners received his First Holy Communion that morning. Many of his family are Spanish speakers, so the first portion of the homily is given in Spanish. English begins at minute 10:51
