The Most Holy Body and Blood
of Christ
The ancient words of Psalm 116 ring out fresh
and new in today’s responsorial psalm. When
the psalmist asks how he or anyone can make
a return to the Lord for all the good that God
has done, he is echoing our prayer of wondrous
gratitude. How can any of us ever make a return
to the Lord or repay God in any way? In this
psalm we are told what we are to do: We are to
take up the cup of salvation and “call upon the name of the
Lord” (Psalm 116:13).
This primal need to give thanks and make a return to God
prompts the Church to give us this solemnity of the Body and
Blood of Christ, a celebration set apart from Holy Thursday,
when, among other things, we commemorate Jesus Christ’s
establishment of the Eucharist. That day, set in the context of
the Easter Triduum, is busy with many symbols and actions.
Today we turn our full attention to the body and blood of
Christ, given to us in the forms of bread and wine.
THE CUP OF SALVATION
Jesus, in Mark’s Gospel, identifies the cup of salvation for
us. It is the cup of his blood, the blood of the covenant. This
blood fulfills the old covenant, the one marked by Moses
when he sprinkled the Israelites with the blood of sacrificed
animals. Now we take up the cup of the new covenant, the
cup of salvation, and we call upon the name of the Lord. How
can this action make a return to the Lord? Only this way: In
this action we offer to God the only perfect gift. Alone we are
nothing. It is Christ who is the perfect offering. It is through the
total gift of his body and blood that we have been redeemed.
Today’s Readings: Ex 24:3–8; Ps 116:12–13, 15–18; Heb 9:11–15; Mk 14:12–16,
22–26

El Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo
Las antiguas palabras del Salmo 116 resuenan
frescas y nuevas en el salmo responsorial de hoy.
Cuando el salmista pregunta como él o alguien
puede pagarle a Dios por todo el bien que
Dios le ha hecho, está haciendo eco a nuestra
oración de maravillada gratitud. ¿Cómo puede
alguno de nosotros recompensar o pagarle a
Dios? En este salmo, el salmista nos dice lo que
debemos hacer: Levantaré el cáliz de salvación
e “invocaré el nombre del Señor” (Salmo 116:13).
Esta necesidad primordial de dar gracias y pagarle a Dios
motiva a la Iglesia a darnos esta solemnidad del Cuerpo y la
Sangre de Cristo, una celebración separada del Jueves Santo
cuando, entre otras cosas, conmemoramos el establecimiento
de la Eucaristía. Ese día, situado en el contexto del triduo
de Pascua, está ocupado por muchos símbolos y acciones.
Hoy, damos toda nuestra atención al Cuerpo y a la Sangre de
Cristo, entregados a nosotros en forma de pan y vino.
LA COPA DE SALVACIÓN
En el Evangelio de Marcos, Jesús identifica para nosotros
la copa de salvación. Es la copa de su sangre, la sangre de
la alianza. Esta sangre cumple la antigua alianza, aquella
que fue marcada por Moisés cuando salpicó a los israelitas
con la sangre de los animales sacrificados. Ahora alzamos la
copa de la nueva alianza, la copa de salvación e invocamos
el nombre del Señor. ¿Cómo puede esta acción ser un pago
al Señor? Sólo de esta manera: en esta acción ofrecemos a
Dios el único regalo perfecto. Solos, somos nada. Cristo es la
ofrenda perfecta. Es mediante el regalo total de su cuerpo y
sangre que somos redimidos.

REFLECTIONS
THANKSGIVING
The word “thanksgiving” most often calls to our mind
the holiday in November. But as early as the middle of the second century Justin Martyr referred to the blessed bread and
wine of the Lord’s Supper as “food we call ‘thanksgiving’ ” (in
Greek eucharistia). The Thanksgiving we celebrate in the autumn is at times marked by a sort of proud societal self‑congratulation and the consumption of food until we sink into
an inert stupor. The “thanksgiving” that we call our Eucharist is
just the opposite: we are led to it by an acknowledgment of our
own failings; we remember our humble place in the scheme of
things by giving praise to God alone.
While the food of Christ’s body and blood fills our spiritual
hungers, it also creates in us a greater hunger. We are not sent
to our spiritual sofas to let the Lord’s Supper settle; we are sent
to be living signs of that thanksgiving for the world by looking
out for the poor and powerless, feeding the hungry, caring for
the sick, speaking out against the self‑righteous. In short, the
hunger created by our doing in remembrance of Christ must
lead us to living in remembrance of him.

REFLEJOS
ACCIÓN DE GRACIAS
El Día de Acción de Gracias que celebramos en el
otoño a veces se ve marcado por una especie de orgullo y
autofelicitación por parte de nuestra sociedad, por no hablar de
comilonas que nos llevan hasta el estupor. Pero la “acción de
gracias” que en griego se llama “Eucaristía” es al revés: lo que
nos lleva a ella es el reconocimiento de nuestras faltas;
recordamos nuestra posición humilde en el universo alabando a
Dios, y a nadie más que a Dios.
Es verdad que el alimento del Cuerpo y la Sangre de Cristo
sacia el hambre de nuestro espíritu, pero también es verdad que
ese alimento crea en nosotros un hambre más intensa aun. Al
terminar la Misa no nos envían a un sofá espiritual a sentarnos
en lo que la Cena del Señor se nos asienta en el estómago; más
bien, nos envían al mundo a ser signos vivientes de esa Acción
de Gracias, ayudando a los pobres y desvalidos, alimentando a
los hambrientos, cuidando a los enfermos, protestando contra
las actitudes farisaicas. En fin, el hambre producida en nosotros
al hacer el Memorial de Jesús nos tiene que impulsar a vivir “en
memoria de él”.
