Feast of Corpus Christi
“Adoring the Body and Blood of Christ, let us ask him with our heart: “Lord, give me the daily bread to go forward, Lord, satisfy me with your presence!” –Pope Francis
Despite the cold, wind and rain, our hearts were ready to adore our Lord on Sunday, June 11, the Solemnity of Corpus Christi. Our dear priest friends, Fr. Tim Fairman and Fr. Matt Jamesson led a Eucharistic Procession along with many parishioners from St. Theresa Parish. Enduring the inclement weather, dozens participated in the 1 ½ mile Procession. We were blessed that they made a stop at our Home. Sheltered from the wind and rain under our portico, we gathered to sing and pray as Fr. Matt placed the monstrance on the altar that was set up in front of our Home.
On Corpus Christ in 2022 the opening of the National Eucharistic Revival Pope Francis reflected, “The miracle of the loaves and fish does not happen in a spectacular way… the bread increases as it passes from hand to hand. And as the crowd eats, they realize that Jesus is taking care of everything. This is the Lord present in the Eucharist. He calls us to be citizens of Heaven, but at the same time, he takes into account the journey we have to face here on earth. If I have hardly any bread in my sack, he knows and takes care of it himself.”
We are grateful to be a part of the St. Theresa Parish Community and blessed to have been a part of this Eucharistic Procession. Together we gathered in confidence to visually participate in welcoming the Lord to our Home and into our lives. Praying together we recognize that the Eucharist is a true sign of our faith that God exists, that He loves us, and He is still among us – in the Real Presence of the Eucharist, in the ministry of the priests, and in the communion of the faithful.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place our trust in You, and entrust our Home and parish community to You, through your Mother and ours, Mary Most Holy
