As Father James says in this weekend’s Bulletin, Corpus Christi, also known as the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, is when “𝘸𝘦 𝘤𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘣𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘢𝘤𝘳𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘴𝘢𝘤𝘳𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴, 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘌𝘶𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘵! 𝘕𝘰 𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘴𝘢𝘤𝘳𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘨𝘦𝘵𝘴 𝘪𝘵𝘴 𝘰𝘸𝘯 𝘧𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘵 𝘥𝘢𝘺 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘨𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘭 𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘢𝘳, 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘣𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘺 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘌𝘶𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 “𝘧𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘢𝘱𝘦𝘹 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰𝘭𝘦 𝘊𝘩𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘢𝘯 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦” (𝘓𝘶𝘮𝘦𝘯 𝘎𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘶𝘮 11).”
It’s so important, that this Sunday’s Feast is when the entire Church in the United States is embarking on a National Eucharistic Revival. Watch as Bishop Hicks shares his excitement and news about the Eucharistic Revival https://youtu.be/n2wGITt6hhg You can also read his insightful thoughts about it in his monthly column.
Why should we participate in the Corpus Christi procession? The annual procession on the feast of Corpus Christi…has a special importance and meaning for the pastoral life of the parish and our city…. When the Eucharist is carried through the street in a solemn procession with singing, we give public witness of faith and devotion toward the sacrament. Says Pope John Paul II, “𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘥𝘦𝘷𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘪𝘱𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘧𝘢𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘧𝘶𝘭 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘌𝘶𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘤 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘤𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘰𝘭𝘦𝘮𝘯𝘪𝘵𝘺 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘉𝘰𝘥𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘉𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘊𝘩𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘵 𝘪𝘴 𝘢 𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘤𝘦 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘓𝘰𝘳𝘥 𝘸𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘩 𝘺𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘭𝘺 𝘣𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘫𝘰𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘵 𝘪𝘯 𝘪𝘵” (Ecclesia de Eucharistia, n.10). He continues: “𝘐𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘴𝘪𝘨𝘯𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘣𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘸𝘪𝘯𝘦, 𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘥 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘣𝘰𝘥𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘥, 𝘊𝘩𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘵 𝘸𝘢𝘭𝘬𝘴 𝘣𝘦𝘴𝘪𝘥𝘦 𝘶𝘴 𝘢𝘴 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘨𝘵𝘩 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘧𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘫𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘯𝘦𝘺, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘏𝘦 𝘦𝘯𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦𝘴 𝘶𝘴 𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦, 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘦, 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘩𝘰𝘱𝘦” (n.62)
Looking forward to seeing you at any of the Mass times this weekend (in which Father James is preaching), and especially at the Corpus Christi Procession; come and walk in Jesus’ very Presence! (Corpus Christi swag bags will be given to those participating in the procession.)
