ONLY SON

Today, Sunday, used to be known as Corpus Christi (Body of Christ) Sunday, but today is called the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.  It commemorates the sacrifice of an Only Son, the only son of God.  I once had three sons, but now have a memorable only son.

The “only Son” of the New Testament, though he has a competitor in the Old Testament known as Isaac, is the one who took it on himself to carry out the predictions of the Messiah, especially as foretold by Isaiah, the prophet.  He was truly the Son of God, and Catholics and Anglicans and other Christians remember this on this Sunday.

I also have an only granddaughter.  She’s an active child and memorable, too.  However, I am grateful the only sacrifice I need make is give her that pie I had cherished.
