Corpus Christi Sunday Sermon, June 3 -- The Eucharistic Heart of Jesus (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi Parish)

The Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano (in the year 700) has been studied by scientists numerous times over the past 1,300 years (most recently in 1970) -- the Host visibly turned to a piece of human heart tissue, the Chalice sensibly changed to blood.  I have seen this miracle myself, and there are hundreds like it.

Jesus, on the night before he died, desired to express his great love for us -- and he said, "This is my body." With these words, he would both offer himself as a sacrifice for our salvation, and remain with us forever as our companion and friend.  We consider the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, a heart of love.
