In his homily, Rev Fr. Joseph Rodrigues pointed out the importance of the Holy Eucharist around our family. The Eucharist has the greatest power possible to move the family to love and serve the Lord, to bring the good news of Jesus to all encountered. When family members are prepared to participate in Mass and receive Jesus in Communion, they are being formed into holy temples – sanctuaries of God. The Christian family is healed in terms of wounded relationships and emotions, be they spiritual, moral, or psychological. The Eucharist as a Sacrament of Presence will encourage families to reach out to others and to share this Jesus whom they have received.


He also said that families should come together to the table of the Lord as often as they can receive the indispensable grace that comes to us in the Eucharist. Family commitment to life is a necessary consequence of our union with our Eucharistic Lord.
