Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Pentecost
At Pentecost, Christ poured out the Spirit and revealed Him as a Divine
Person, making the Holy Trinity fully manifest (Compendium, 144). Pentecost
is the birth of the Church, when she began her earthly pilgrimage that will be
fulfilled one day in glory (USCCA, 115). The Acts of the Apostles and the
epistles of the New Testament show the presence and action of the Holy Spirit
in the first-century Church. This Church has expanded through space and
time, under the protection of the Holy Spirit. Have you studied the history of
The Most Holy Body & Blood
We used to call this special annual celebration of the gift of the Holy Eucharist by the name Corpus
Christi (Latin for “Body of Christ”). The more recent English title puts us back in touch with the vivid
concreteness of Jesus’ gift of himself in his humanity, now present to us as our risen Lord, and
accessible tangibly in the meal form of bread of wine. This Sunday’s second reading from St. Paul’s
first letter to the Corinthians gives us the earliest report of the Last Supper — some ten to twenty years
before the Gospel accounts. Let’s savor his special treatment of this central sacrament of our faith.
“On the night when he was betrayed” reminds us of the drama of the Gethsemane prayer and the
arrest, leading to Jesus’ Passion and death—and the human complicity (Jewish and Roman) entailed
in all of this.
The words identifying the bread and wine with his body and blood point both to the death that separated
his blood from his body and to the fact that his risen presence to the community at worship would
indeed be nurturing and empowering as “bread for the road” in the post-Easter mission.
“New covenant in my blood” is language that reminds the community that it is part of the renewed
covenant people of God. The mandate (spoken twice) —“Do this in memory of me”— makes this more
than a memory; it is a commission to repeat this ritual as a regular practice of the community,
reminding us of our identity as the body of Christ meant for the life of the world.
It is also a repeated proclamation of “the death of the Lord until he comes.” That is a faith claim. What is
proclaimed is not simply the death of a Palestinian craftsman; it is the death of the one we know as our
risen Lord, present and empowering us in the continuation of his mission for forgiveness and the
creation of a community of love and service. The phrase “… until he comes” expresses the sure hope
that the kingdom of God will come to full expression in a future in which we will participate.
And why does Paul include this tradition in this letter? Not for archival reasons. He does it to remind the
Corinthian Christians that their failure to take care of one another is a failure to “discern the body of
Christ” (v. 29) — both as the Lord present in the Supper and as the assembled community sharing the
same graced life and called to minister to one another. This feast delivers a profound challenge to
conversion. Discerning the body gets us involved in unexpected ways with the people and the world

One Lane on Route 94 near Augusta to Close June 6 for Three Months
The Missouri Department of Transportation will close one lane on a section of Route 94 in St.
Charles County for three months starting on Monday, June 6, at 7 a.m. The westbound lane of Route
94 between Klondike Park and Sanders Road will be closed so crews can repair two slides and
replace pavement in the area.
Route 94 will be a one lane road for about a mile and traffic will be directed through the work zone
using temporary signals. Drivers can also detour around the lane closure by taking Route 94 to
Schluersburg Road to Route F. All lanes of Route 94 will reopen by late August.
