>> a reading from the book of genesis.

>> in those days, melchizedek king of salem, brought out bread and wine, and being a priest of god most high, he blessed abram with these words.

Blessed be abram by god most high, the creator of heaven and earth, and blessed be god most high, who delivered your photos into your hand.

Then abram gave him 1/10 of everything.

The word of the lord.

>> thanks be too god.

>> you are a priest forever in the line of melchizedek.

>> you are a priest forever in the line of melchizedek.

>> the lord said to my lord, sit at my right hand until i make your enemies your footstool.

>> you are a priest forever, in the line of melchizedek.

>> the scepter of your power the lord will stretch forth from zion, rule in the midst of your enemies.

>> you are a priest forever, and the line of melchizedek.

>> yours is princely power in the day of your birth, and holy splendor, before the day star, like they do, i have begotten forever, and the line of melchizedek.

>> the lord has sworn, and he will not repent.

You are a priest forever, according to the order of melchizedek.

>> you are a priest forever, and the line of melchizedek.

>> a reading from the letter of st.

Paul to the corinthians.

>> brothers and sisters, i received from the lord what i also handed on to you, that the lord jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread and after he had given thanks, broke it and said, this is my body that is for you.

Do this in remembrance of me.

In the same way also the cup, after supper saying, this cup is the new covenant in my blood.

Do this as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the lord until he comes.

>> thanks be too god.

>> i am the living bread that came down from heaven said the lord.

Whoever eats this bread will alleluia alleluia.

>> lord be with you previously with your spirit.

>> a reading from the holy gospel according to luke.

>> glory to you, o lord.

>> jesus spoke to the crowds about the kingdom of god, and he healed those who needed to be cared.

As the day was drawing to a close, the 12 approached him and said, dismiss the crowd so that they can go to the surrounding villages and farms and find lodging and provisions for we are in a deserted place here.

He said to them, give them some food yourselves.

They replied, five loaves and two fish are all we have unless we ourselves go and buy food for all these people.

Now the man they are numbered about 5,000.

Then he said to his disciples, have them sit down in groups of about 50.

They did so and made them all sit down.

Then taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing over them broke them and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd.

They all ate and were satisfied.

And when the leftover fragments were picked up, they filled 12 wicker baskets.

>> the gospel of the lord.

>> praise to you, lord jesus christ.

>> on this wonderful feast of the most holy body and blood of christ, we enter into a very sacred blessed week in the diocese of madison.

As this tuesday, we will officially welcome bishop donald hiding to be installed as the fifth bishop of the diocese of madison.

What a gift to welcome him, he who i am sure you've heard in the news various ways is that he was a man born and raised in west alice, the milwaukee area.

A priest of milwaukee archdiocese.

He spent the bishop of gary, indiana for the last four years.

So pope francis has deemed it a wonderful gift to all of us for us to have and to welcome our new shepherd.

All of the goodness as we continue to grieve and are grateful for the lives of our life of our previous bishop merlino after his death in november.

But what a joy to welcome bishop hieing.

And for myself he will be the fourth bishop who i served as a priest in my 44 years of priest ministry for the stice.

I look forward to meeting him and to know that he has a very special interest and love for apostolate, the persons of disability staff will be meeting with him on thursday.

Of this we can very personal way to bring him up to speed and help them to know this wonderful gift.

I know i've already heard the amazement that he has that this television has been a weekly gift for all of us.

All of you.

Since 1,967 when senior campion first began through the generosity of wisc tv.

Bishop's installation will take place in the midst of a holy eucharist, a mass which is true with every significant event that we celebrate in the catholic church.

This sacrament, this most important of all.

That we gather as the body of christ and we celebrate the goodness of god's rich blessings and again, celebrate and receive the very promise of the lord, this true and tied promise we talked about last week on the feast of the most holy trinity.

The promise of god i am always with you.

Not a new promise that came from jesus, a promise that was gifted as we heard a little bit in the first reading from genesis and the time of abraham.

The time of abram about 1800 years before christ was born.

It was abraham who first had this wonderful encounter, he was known to be a father of faith.

To be able to have this encounter with god.

To be able to grow the very faith that continues to be who we are today in our modern day.

The first reading, of abram his nephew lot, he was captured by a local tribe and taken off into captivity.

It was abraham who went after him.

He got his release and as he was returning, he went by the city of salem which today is jerusalem.

There he met.

Melchizedek, melchizedek was the king as well as the high priest.

An unusual combination but it was melchizedek who offered up bread and wine.

Not really sure if it was offering it as to nourishment and refreshment for abram and for lot in their journeys, but also it could be considered wealth.

Consider to be a sacrifice offered at thanksgiving to god.

A pre-figment of the very gift of you chris that we celebrate again today.

That we in just a few moments at this altar, that as following what paul says in the second reading which is the oldest account of the institution of the eucharist of the last supper written about 10 15 years before the first gospel was even written.

But it was paul who reminds us of this great gift to sacrificed this meal that we also offer of bread and wine.

No well in our faith, because they actually become the body and blood of christ.

It's a way of in a way, a lively way of remembering the very presence of god.

Not just in the event 2000 years ago at the last supper when he instituted the eucharist.

A lively faith that makes himself extremely, totally really present to us at this holy eucharist.

What a privilege again for us to share in that gift, very tangibly but also on this television mass we always have time of communion.

But out the prayer called the spiritual communion.

If you are not able to actually receive the body and blood of christ.

Wherever you happen to be.

But what a wonderful gift of that spiritual communion.

As we do so, again, we continually celebrate this wonderful gift.

I wonder how many thousands of times as a priest in 44 years i've had the privilege of celebrating this sacrament as well as the others of our church with countless people.

I never get tired of doing so, it is such a privilege and humble gift for me as a priest to be that presence and that instrument of the lords will presence among us.

Again, it is a remembrance that is very lively.

A reminder that eucharist is a communion with jesus and his person, but also in his mission.

It is not just us receiving the lord and spiritual communion or holy communion, but that we share in our nurse to be able being able to proclaim this whole way of life.

To proclaim the truth of god, to proclaim the kingdom of god.

It's in that goodness that we know as we share in this eucharist again that we continue to become the body of christ.

Call to be living witnesses of his presence and of his gospel.

We participate in a life-giving way, the sustaining grace, that the lord has given us.

As his promise fulfilled continually as i am always with you, do this in remembrance of me.

>> we profess this great faith of the church.

I believe in one god, the father almighty, maker of heaven on earth.

Of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one lord, jesus christ.

The only begotten son of god, born of the father before all ages.

God from god, light from light, true god from true god, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the father.

Through him all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation, he came down from heaven.

By the holy spirit was incarnate of the virgin mary and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under point is pilot and suffered death and was buried.

He rose again on the third day in accordance with the scriptures.

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the father, he will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the holy spirit, the lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the father and the son, who with the father and the son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic church.

I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and i look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
