patriarch_twal_bn“The celebration of the feast of Corpus Christi invites us to reflect on our responsibility in building a caring, just, and familial society.  Like the disciples, we are tempted to dismiss the crowd, to say to the needy to go on their own and provide for themselves.  In our particular time, when globalization makes us more dependent upon each other, in our time when the Church is target of attacks, political persecution and religious extremism, Corpus Christi must make us one body, one Church strengthened by faith in God and solidarity among ourselves.”
