Corpus Christi C
A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer
Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit
from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End

The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) : All Ate and Were Filled
And all ate and were filled (NRSV, Luke 9:17a).
Let us pray,
Father, as your Son Jesus fed the hungry multitudes, he feeds us as well with his own Body and Blood, effective signs of the life that you share with us in the power of the Holy Spirit. May we ever hunger for that life and grow in it in every moment as you always offer it to us through the same Lord Jesus who is your Word made flesh.
Through Christ our Lord
