Quezon City – On Sunday, June 10 the feast of the Body and Blood of Christ was celebrated by Fr. Dong and concelebrated by Fr. Luigi at the Guanella Center. The feast of Corpus Christi reminds us of God’s love in the following ways:

  • Jesus offers Himself, “Take this, it is My body.”
  • He teaches HUMILITY, He took the form of bread, made from simple things, salt and flour, even poor families have salt and flour; instead of a delicacy like tapa or steak to represent His body to ensure that everyone has access to this sacred mystery (the Eucharist).
  • He wanted to build a relationship that lasts, “Do this in memory of me”. He wanted to be present at every Eucharist, he said “I am with you always until the end of the age”. Truly He is present in the Eucharist.

After Mass, the whole community was invited to participate in a procession of the Blessed Sacrament, led by Fr. Charlton, followed by Benediction, and evening prayers.
