“Body and Blood of Christ (Mark 14: 12-16; 22-26)” by Fr. Jim Willig

This is the final Sunday of the Fr. Jim Willig Gospel Studies for this season.  Fr. Jim did not record Gospel Studies during the summer.  Please see Fr. Michael’s Blog for continued inspiration and Scripture insight:    https://jmsparough.wordpress.com/

———————————————————————————————————

This Sunday is the feast of Corpus Christi, also called “The Body and Blood of Christ.”  The Gospel is from Mark and it returns us to the Last Supper, at the beginning of the Passover.

Jesus said to His disciples, “Take it, this is My body…” Then He took the cup, gave it to them and said, “This is My blood of the Covenant …..”

Fr. Jim reminds us of the impact of the Passover for the Jews, and how they not only remembered the past, but reenacted it at the Passover Meal. Jesus shared that He was the fulfillment of the Passover.

“Trinity Sunday (Matthew 28: 16-20)” by Fr. Michael Sparough, S.J.

This Sunday is the feast of the Most Holy Trinity, referred to as Trinity Sunday. Fr. Jim Willlig stopped completing his Gospel Studies after Pentecost Sunday.  Because of this, Fr. Jim never recorded a Bible Study for Trinity Sunday.

Fr. Michael Sparough graciously prepared and recorded a Gospel Study on the Most Holy Trinity for us to hear. Fr. Michael explains that although the Trinity remains a spiritual mystery, it is an invitation for each of us to enter into a deeper relationship with God in all His presence; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In addition, Fr. Michael has a mediation on the Sign of the Cross at the end of the Gospel Study.

“Pentecost (John 20: 19-23)” by Fr. Jim Willig

This Sunday is Pentecost – the birthday of the Church.  This Gospel of John highlights the time when Jesus appeared to the Disciples in the Upper Room after His Resurrection. Jesus breathed the Spirit into them and said “Peace be with you.”

After the Ascension, the Disciples were once again afraid, hiding in the Upper Room when the Spirit descended upon them. Because of the Spirit, they were filled with hope and courage and took up the work of spreading the Good News – the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

“The Way, The Truth, and The Life (John 14: 1-12)” by Fr. Jim Willig

This is the 5th Sunday of Easter. The Gospel this week focuses on the time when Jesus is telling his disciples that he is leaving. Jesus explains that he is going to prepare a place for them and then promises to return for them.

Jesus tells His disciples they know the way. Thomas says in confusion, “we do not know where you are going, so how could we know the way.” Jesus replies “I am the way, the truth and the life!”

“The Good Shepherd (John 10: 27-30)” by Fr. Jim Willig

This Sunday is often referred to as Good Shepherd Sunday. The Gospel of John highlights Jesus as the Good Shepherd. In this Gospel Study, Fr. Jim compares us to sheep. This is both humorous and humbling. Sheep are not the smartest animals in the pen!

The blessing is that as His sheep, we all know the voice of our Shepherd who is leading us; and the Shepherd knows each of us by name.
