Important truth

He declared quite plainly, "I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting."
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
Today's readings couple an important truth concerning the presence of Christ in people and in the Eucharist. They help us to see how Jesus Christ is truly the center and the heart of Christianity. Saul was persecuting the Christians. On the road to Damascus he was struck to the ground and he heard the voice saying, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?" It was the voice of Jesus Christ. This story took place after the death and resurrection of Jesus. Saul had never even seen Jesus before His death on the cross. And yet Jesus was accusing Paul of persecuting Him. The reason is that Jesus truly lives in us. Note that Jesus did not say that it was as if Paul were persecuting Him or that He considered what was done to His followers as having been done to Himself. He declared quite plainly, "I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting."
Points to Pray and Ponder: There are tremendous mysteries pertaining to the solidarity of the human race not only from our common origin, but also from our baptism into the Mystical Body of Christ. Christ Jesus died to redeem all. This means us that the persecuted Christians of the Sudan, the homeless of our big cities and the victims of poverty are all called to be, if they are not already, - part of the one Body of Christ, the risen Christ. We as baptized believers are members of the Mystical Body of Christ, the same Christ Jesus who is truly present in the Eucharist. Jesus in the Gospel proclaims, "My flesh is real food and my blood is real drink." We must take this words literally, for Jesus is truly present in the Holy Eucharist, a spiritual food and drink.
