This is a wonderful question to ask ourselves as Catholics who gather every Sunday to celebrate the Most Holy Eucharist. It is the question that the Israelites ask in today’s First Reading when “hoar frost” appears every morning in the desert in the form of a bread-like substance, prefiguring the host we receive at Mass. “What is this” for us Catholics? You may have missed a recent article that appeared in our bulletin a couple of weeks ago. It is worth repeating here and reflecting upon it:

The Holy Catholic Church teaches that at the moment of the Consecration of the Mass, the bread and wine on the altar truly become the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ. The bread and wine cease to exist, though the appearances and properties of bread and wine remain.

-Do I truly believe that Jesus Christ is actually present in the Holy Eucharist?
-If I do, does my behavior reflect that?
-Am I on time for Mass? Do I acknowledge His Presence in the tabernacle when entering the
    Church with prayerful silence, to bow or genuflect before entering my pew?
-Is the way I dress, sit, stand and kneel speak of the reverence I have for Him?
-When Mass begins, do I listen carefully to His Presence in the Liturgy of the Word and Homily?
    If I am late in arriving for Mass, or return from going to the rest room, do I wait in the back
    of church until everyone is standing before going to be seated in my pew?
-Do I prepare myself before receiving Holy Communion in prayer or do I approach the
    Eucharistic Minister as if I were just waiting in line as I would for anything else?
-When I have received the Sacred Host (Jesus Christ – Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity) do I truly
    realize that the Son of God is now a very real part of me?
-Do I respect the priest presider as leading our prayer in the Person of Christ?


There has been a lot of discussion and confusion about the recent pastoral letter from Pope Francis regarding the Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form. For now, Archbishop Allen Vigneron is allowing those parishes who already celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass to continue doing so, while the pope’s pastoral letter is further studied.
