Sermon given by the Rev. Nathan Stomberg on the Feast of Corpus Christi (6/26/2022).

Every sinful instinct we have tells us we can do it all on our own. We are beholden to our pride. We are so held captive by our pride, that we have a whole month to celebrate it! The bread of man is this: you can define who you are; you can define your identity; you can do whatever you want and expect the world to affirm you; you can define your own meaning of life; you get to define your meaning of love, your meaning of truth, your meaning of justice. All the answers, and ultimately your salvation, are found deep inside yourself. The Holy Eucharist is a repudiation of all of this, everything our culture stands for.

Readings: Deuteronomy 8:2-3; Psalm 34:1-8; 1 Corinthians 10:1-4, 16-17; John 6:47-58
