THE MOST HOLY
BODY AND BLOOD
OF CHRIST
(Corpus Christi)

This weekend as we return to our Ordinary Time in our Church’s liturgical year, we turn our focus on one of the most beloved parts of our faith, the gift of the Eucharist. The Eucharist is the “perfect gift” because, in it, Jesus Christ gives himself totally to us. But it is also a “challenging gift” because it demands of us that we ourselves become a “total gift” to our brothers and sisters. Only those who are prepared to work for the good of their neighbor receive the Eucharist with the proper disposition. If the awareness of our weakness frightens us, we should not despair, for the Eucharist is also an “empowering gift” since it gives us the strength that we need to carry out what it demands.

During the past three weeks we have received an insert in this bulletin, talking about the Eucharistic Adoration, to help us prepare for this Corpus Christi weekend... T
