From the homily
Fr. Michael was the celebrant at the 12:10 pm Mass today. What I remember most from his homily was his comments about Our Lord's command, " Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you." This is, of course, the Eucharist, in which Christ gives Himself to us- Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. He lets us take Himself into our very beings, consume Him, that we might follow Him more closely. On the other hand, when we refuse to follow Him, we ourselves end up being consumed by our sin. (He named Gollum as a good literary example- in his selfish desire he ends up a shrivelled shadow of a being. )
