Dear Friend…(June 2024)

On June 2nd we celebrate the real presence of the body of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist – the Feast of Corpus Christi. “You are what you eat” is a saying one hears regularly. And it’s true. Eating shapes our identities, defines who we are. Food highlights ethnicity, nationality, and defines holidays and celebrations. We pour ourselves into those meals out of love.

The same thing happens every time we attend Mass. We gather as a community for a meal. When we receive the body of Christ we are challenged to become Jesus’ eyes, hands, and feet. We are sent out to the world with compassion to do good.

“We are what we eat.” We become the Body of Christ.

In the land of the midnight sun, KNOM radio waves provide spiritual communion prayers to remote regions of Western Alaska and to those unable to attend Mass in person. Thanks to you, KNOM can continue this important mission. We feel blessed every day by your kindness, generosity, and most importantly your friendship. If you have any prayer intentions or if you would simply like to say hello, we would love to hear from you.
