Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Jesus

"In all truth I tell you, if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of man and dringk his blood, you have no life in you." Jn 6:53

"For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink." Jn 6: 55.

God has never made any empty promises. Every promise he has made has come true. The question is how do we deal with such a revelation? How should we look at these words of Christ? Were these words meant to deceive his desciples so they can desire more of him or were they really meant to encourage them to seek this food that he offered them?

The holy Catholic Church firmly believes and teaches that  Jesus Christ, our risen Lord, is trully present in his Body, Blood, Soul and Divinty in both species of the holy Eucharist. How it happens is one of the mysteries that we have to hold on to with faith. Only with the eyes of our faith can we see the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Jesus himself has proven this to many people over the centuries. In the book "Eucharistic Miracles" we can read the many miracles that occured, most of them during the celebration of the Eucharist at the moment of consecration. 

Holy Communion is a moment when the divine presence of Christ litterally unites itself to our physical presence. It is the moment when the divine enters our mundane presence. It is supposed to be one of the greatest experiences we can ever dream of. Many people in the time of Jesus longed only to touch his cloak so they can receive the divine power that he possesed. We, when we receive the holy Eucharist, don't just touch his cloak, but we consume the food that he offered to the world as the bread of life. We consume his own body and blood. If we have never had that experience, or have lost that sense of his divine presence when we receive holy communion, then our faith needs a revival. We need to go back and see where we started to go wrong. Maybe we need to spend a little more time before the Blessed Sacrament and pray for our faith to be revamped. Our faith needs a reboot now and then.

"Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me and I in him." Jn 6:56. May our communion in the Body and Blood of Christ bring us closer to him in this life and live with him eternally in heaven.

Confirmation 2019

Confirmation 2019On May 5, 2019, six of our young people received the sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Paul Sirba. Because of the small number of confirmants this year, we had to join the other groups from Blessed Sacrament parish in Hibbing and St. Joseph, Chisholm. The ceremony took place at Blessed Sacrament  church in Hibbing. Altogether, twenty-five young people were confirmed.

Congratulations to Saoirse Autio, Dakoda Durovek, Jaxon Heggedahl, Jeffrey Palmer, Jacob Ruzynski and Blake Tajha for having completed the journey and being confirmed . It was not an easy journey, but they persevered and are now empowered with the promised gift of the Holy Spirit.

A special thank you to Jessica Rich who took these young people on this journey, preparing them and seeing them through to the sacrament. A work of thanks also to the parents for your support of your children and working along with us to complete this special step in their lives.
