Corpus Christi - for the salvation of the world...

Solemnity of the 
Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ
(Corpus Christi)

"This Solemnity does not only celebrate the Eucharist but solemnly
 bears it in procession, publicly proclaiming that the sacrifice of Christ 
is for the salvation of the whole world." - Pope St John Paul II

 Jesu, of Your love befriend us,
You refresh us, You defend us,
Your eternal goodness, send us
In the land of life to see.
Sequence for Corpus Christi

"Hidden God, devoutly I adore Thee,
truly present beneath these veils:
all my heart subdues itself before Thee,
since all before Thee faints and fails." 
Adoro Te Devote, St Thomas Aquinas

"Be the apostle of the divine Eucharist, 
like a flame which enlightens and warms, 
like the Angel of His heart who will go to proclaim Him 
to those who don't know Him and will 
encourage those who love Him and are suffering."

St. Peter Julian Eymard
to Mme Antoinette de Grandville
July 4, 1859

"We have Him so near in the Blessed Sacrament,
where He is already glorified and
where we don't have to gaze upon Him as being
so tired and worn out, bleeding, wearied by His journeys,
persecuted by those for whom He did so much good,
and not believed in by the Apostles . . . .
Behold Him here without suffering,
full of glory ...
strengthening some, encouraging others,
our companion in the most Blessed Sacrament."
St. Teresa of Avila

A most blessed FATHER'S DAY 
to all FATHERS!

St John Paul II, in a March 19, 1981, homily, asked,
“Where, dear father, will you be able to draw the energy
necessary to assume in various circumstances
the right attitude that your children, 
even without knowing it, expect from you?” 
He strongly advised against smothering their spontaneity or
abandoning them to a state of insecurity or loneliness.
“St. Joseph is the answer to this, he proclaimed.

"St Joseph was an ordinary sort of man
on whom God relied to do great things. 
He did exactly what the Lord wanted him to do,
in each and every event that went to make up his life."
St Josemaria Escriva

A stepfather, adoptive father, and biological father, Thomas More is a model for all dads

In praise of the Father, and our fathers

St Joseph and St Thomas More,
pray for all fathers!

Day 5
Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Solemnity:  June 24

Jesus, meek and humble of heart
make my heart like unto Thine. 
Heart of Jesus, burning with love for me, 
inflame my heart with love of Thee.
