Brief description:

This weekend, the Church celebrates the Feast of Corpus Christi, commemorating the Real Presence of God in the Holy Eucharist, through which Christ fulfills His title of Emmanuel. The Mass is truly the perfect sacrifice given us by God and is the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross to the Father re-presented on the altar. The sacrifice of the altar and the sacrifice on the Cross are one and the same–just as there is one priest and one victim in Christ, so also there is one goal: to worship, thank, and entreat God; and to make reparation for sin. The Body and Blood of Christ are our food. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the faithful are unable to receive the Eucharist, but the Mass is still offered and even livestreamed in many parishes. For example, St. John the Apostle Parish in Vancouver offers Cantonese Mass every Saturday at 4pm and English Mass at 5:30pm. Watching the Mass online is a good way to connect the Church, allowing the faithful a way to pray and celebrate the Sacraments together. When the priest offers the Body and Blood to God, the faithful ought also to offer their entire selves to God.
