Read my reflection for Liturgical Publications’ Midweek Reflection
Panis Angelicus fit panis hominem. (May the bread of Angels become bread for mankind.)
This world is not always the easiest place to live. Few would mistake our earthly existence for heaven. Yet, we live in hope of heaven because God crashed into human history through the Incarnation, Jesus Christ, who redeemed this fallen world by his death and resurrection. Feeding our hope even more is that Jesus chose to remain present to us in this world in a very real way through the holy Eucharist. At the altar, we see where this world ends and heaven begins.
