If your diocese celebrates Corpus Christi this Sunday instead of the 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time, please click here to be taken to a reflection written by Dr Scott Hahn on this great feast, Corpus Christi!
We are back in the book of Exodus this Sunday, chapter nineteen, and the Israelites have left Egypt and are camped in the wilderness of Sinai. God says this to Moses: “Say this to the House of Jacob, declare this to the sons of Israel, ‘You yourselves have seen what I did with the Egyptians, how I carried you on eagle’s wings and brought you to myself. From this you know that now, if you obey my voice and hold fast to my covenant, you of all the nations shall be my very own for all the earth is mine. I will count you a kingdom of priests, a consecrated nation.’”
It’s still a very early time in Israel’s knowledge of God and their relationship with Him. God is still revealing Him
