As a young person, I remember thinking that my belief in Christ would be stronger if I could encounter him in the flesh. This is probably a thought that many Christians have, and yet, the reality is that we do encounter the Lord Jesus. In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus tells the disciples, “Go therefore and make disciples… and behold, I am with you always.” We know that he is with us through the Holy Spirit that we celebrate receiving on Pentecost. We know that he is with us in the “mystical body” of Christ, our brothers and sisters in Christ, and the “true body,” the Eucharist. We celebrate this “true body,” this “real presence,” of Christ in the Eucharist on Corpus Christi- the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.
