The Same Body

by Scott D. Hendricks

This is the same body that was covered in blood, pierced by the spear, pouring forth the saving streams of blood and water for the whole world. Christ soared up from the abyss in dazzling light and leaving his rays there he went up to his throne in heaven. It is that body that he gives to us to hold and eat now.

~ St. John Chrysostom
