Joe Catholic - Today we many dioceses in the United States celebrate the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ. The Gospel reading for today is taken from the 6th chapter of John, the Bread of Life Discourse. Today's Navarre Bible commentary explains the meaning of Christ's words "eat my flesh" and "drink my blood." This commentary can serve as a good tool for answering questions about our belief in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist.

"And they compelled one Simon of Cyrene, who passed by, coming in from the fields, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry the cross." Mark 15:21  There is much to meditate on in today's Gospel reading but I choose to think about Simon of Cyrene. Is he not just like us? He is an ordinary man, oft forgotten in the crowd. He had his own plans for the day, his own worries and challenges, his own dreams. Although I've read this passage several times I have not remembered that Simon was a…
