THE BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST

The feast of the Body and Blood of Christ honours the Real Presence of Christ. We are Eucharistic people who believe in Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist.

Jesus Said “I myself am the living bread” (Jn. 6:51) and He nourishes us not only for this life but for eternal life. 

It is difficult to keep Gods’ love alive in our hearts without the Eucharist and to be a caring, united and loving community aware of the needs of our neighbours, especially the sick and the suffering.

Today not only will we see the Host and Chalice elevated at the Consecration at Mass, or placed in a Monstrance to be exposed on the altar for Adoration, but also carried in procession either in the Church or on our streets, concluding with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

When we receive the Eucharist the food for our journey, let us say thanks for the Body of Christ - Corpus Christi: Christ is present to us, to help us to be present to Him.

Let us treasure this great gift!


FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Congratulations to the children from Durrow NS who received the Eucharist for the first time last weekend. We wish God’s blessing on them, their families, friends and teachers and all who helped them on their faith journey to this time.

The  JPPC would like to thank everyone who supported their recent “Luck First Goal” fundraiser for the Medjugorje Youth Festival. All donations great and small are very much appreciated. Everyone will be in our prayers when we visit Medjugorje.

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPELS

John 6:51-58

Jesus tells us that to have life we need more than physical nourishment. How have you been aware of deeper hungers? What has met that deeper longing in you?

Jesus tells us that it is not just something he gives us which will give us life, but himself in his life, death and resurrection. How has your faith in the person of Jesus fed you?

Jesus speaks about ‘drawing life’ from him. In any day to day living what are the practices which support your faith and help you to draw life from Jesus?

The Eucharist is one of the ways in which we draw life from Jesus. Recall with gratitude how the Eucharist has been a source of nourishment and life for you.

Perhaps you can also think of human examples of people drawing life from one another. From whom have you drawn life? Who has been able to draw life from you?

John Byrne OSA Intercom Jun 2018


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

…  So often in our efforts to comfort someone, to communicate our grief or our joy or to express our love for them, we don’t speak. We reach out and touch their hand, put our arms around them or kiss them. We do this because physical touch expresses what words cannot.

The Eucharist is God’s physical touch. We hear his words, reflect on his miracles and seek to live his values, but nothing connects us with God the way receiving the Eucharist does. Its touch reveals more to us than words ever could….  

(from Homily Notes, Intercom June ’17)
