Catholics Make Bold Claims

  •  We are Christ’s presence on earth today
  •  We cooperate with God to build God’s kingdom in the world.
  •  In the Eucharist, we partake of the Body and Blood of Jesus. We become the Body of Christ. 
  •  Each sacrament is similar.  Take confirmation for example.  The Holy Spirit comes we say through the ritual gesture of imposing of hands and chrism signed on the forehead.  The same Spirit transformed terrified disciples who had locked themselves in a room in fear of the authorities.  The same Spirit transfigured the whole world through the efforts of 12 people who were not especially bright or powerful.  This same Spirit is ours! 
For your Reflection: How are you Christ’s Presence in the world?  Do you call on the Holy Spirit to empower your faith and action?
