Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time August 20, 2000

The bread and the wine which wisdom gives will one day be the body and blood of Christ. God is always present in our lives; he gives himself and he nourishes us. We are invited to open our hands to take what he offers. Each day, he gives us what we need to solve the problems of humanity now. Pope St. Pius X said that Holy Communion is "the shortest and easiest way to heaven." Everyone is encouraged to receive Jesus worthily in the Blessed Eucharist as often as possible.
