The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Year C)
The miracle of multiplying five loaves of bread and two pieces of fish to feed five thousand men (and as many as fifteen to twenty thousand people) is one of the most famous in the Gospels. Apart from providing for the physical needs of those present, Jesus also foreshadows the Holy Eucharist. He "multiplies" Himself miraculously by turning bread and wine into His body and blood so that we will be spiritually fed. That is what today's Feast of Corpus Christi, which is Latin for "Body of Christ," calls us to remember.
