Satisfaction

Today is the feast of Corpus Christi, or The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.

Readings here.

Wikipedia here.  (Who needs actual references when one has Wikipedia?)

Great homily here.

I went last night and it was also very good.  He brought attention to the Gospel reading portion here:

Luk 9:17  And all ate and were satisfied.

The question then was, are we satisfied?  After Mass, are we?  Are we content?  Do we think there's something more out there?  Something better than Jesus?

He also talked about the sacrifice, both of Jesus and of those who followed.  An average of 50 Catholics are martyred each year (source unknown), with untold more non-Catholic Christians.  We are truly lucky, and should indeed feel satisfied upon leaving church.
