Corpus Christi — The New Covenant

The Passover evening comes and the Twelve disciples meet with Jesus to eat the paschal lamb. They think of celebrating their liberation from Egypt and the Sinai covenant. They become, instead, representatives of the twelve tribes of Israel and witnesses of the new covenant foretold by the prophets and they receive the true Lamb as food.

Corpus Christi — Kumain ka na ba?

Para sa mga nag-aaral ng bagong wika, mahalagang matutunan ang mga pama-maraan ng pagbati. Karaniwan sa mga pagbati ay may kalakip ng pangungumusta ng katatayuan, mga hinaharap, mga gawain, at higit sa lahat ay  mga saloobin.  
 
Nang ako ay nanirahan sa Cheung Chao ng halos isang taon, may napansin ako sa kasamahan kong pari na uri ng pagbati sa kapwa na malimit niyang gamitin. “Sihk jo faan me a?” O kung isasalin natin sa wikang Tagalog ay “Kumain ka na ba?”

The word of God and the bread of life

This passage is the concluding part of the discourse on the bread of life, which was taught by Jesus in the synagogue at Capernaum after the multiplication of the loaves and fish.
 
The people saw the sign; they decided to take him by force to make him king on the spot.
 
Why do these amazed and admiring crowds seek Jesus? They are moved by an immature faith. They are interested in Jesus just because they think he is able to satisfy, through miracles, their material needs.
