External link: Bishop Barron’s Sunday Sermon 14th June, 'Friends, this is the first celebration of Corpus Christi—the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ—after the Pew Forum study showing that 70% of Catholics don’t believe in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Vatican II said that the Eucharist is the source and the summit of the Christian life—so it is clear that something has gone seriously wrong. Therefore, it is with renewed interest and focus that we should look to the readings for today’s feast. watch on YouTube 'Super Substantial Bread' (12:28 mins)

External link: The Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist - Bishop Barron at 2020 Religious Education Congress watch on YouTube 'For my keynote talk at the 2020 L.A. Religious Education Congress, I spoke about the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Vatican II says that the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. However, recent polls show a widespread misunderstanding of the Eucharist and a massive failure in communicating the doctrine of the Real Presence. It is time for all of us—Catholic catechists, educators, and evangelists—to pick up our game about this absolutely essential sacrament!'  (1hr 12:39 mins) - (Bishop Barron's YouTube channel)

24th in OT - read homily pdf - 'forgiveness'

First reading: Ecclesiasticus 27:30-28:7 - "Resentment and anger, these are foul things, and both are found with the sinner. He who exacts vengeance will experience the vengeance of the Lord, who keeps strict account of sin. Forgive your neighbour the hurt he does you, and when you pray, your sins will be forgiven. If a man nurses anger against another, can he then demand compassion from the Lord? Showing no pity for a man like himself, can he then plead for his own sins? Mere creature of flesh, he cherishes resentment; who will forgive him his sins? Remember the last things, and stop hating, remember dissolution and death, and live by the commandments. Remember the commandments, and do not bear your neighbour ill-will; remember the covenant of the Most High, and overlook the offence." The word of the Lord.
