“Where do you want us to go and prepare
for you to eat the Passover?”
Mark 14:12-16, 22-26
Focus on the Gospel
June 3, Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood
    Jesus told two of his disciples, “Go into the city and a man will meet you, carrying a jar of water.  
Follow him.”  The disciples knew that jugs of water are carried by women.  A man carrying a water
jug would be unusual, a sign to follow him.  At the Passover meal, Jesus “Took bread, said the
blessing, broke it, gave it to them, and said, ‘Take it; this is my body.’”  Then “He took a cup, gave
thanks, and gave it to them, and they all drank from it.  He said to them, ‘This is my blood of the
covenant.’” Like the man carrying a jug of water, this was very unusual.  It was a sign to follow him,
a memorial of his life and what was soon to happen.  The disciples believed in Jesus.  They ate the
bread and believed it was His Body.  They drank the wine and believed it was His Blood.  After His
crucifixion, death, resurrection, and ascension, they understand the New Covenant.  They believed in
the true presence of Jesus in what appeared to be bread and wine.  They suffered and sacrificed
much to follow Jesus.  Do we truly believe?  Do we follow Jesus?
