“Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you can see I have.” (LK 24: 39)
We know how important our bodies are—to express our love and express our bond, love, and relationship. Our children depend totally on our protection, on our gentleness, and on our affirmations. Our spouses need to be in touch with us. Our Lord comes to us in Holy Communion in His body; whenever we come to the Holy Mass, we can hear priests saying: “the Body of Christ,” and we answer: Amen—“it is true,” “let it be so.” And He comes to our hearts and stays there to be connected with us and to be united with us.
“Lord Jesus, open the Scriptures to us; make our hearts burn while you speak to us.” (Gospel Acclamation)
