Today we celebrate the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. In a particular way we recall and rejoice in the Lord's sacrifice we enter into each time the Mass is celebrated, as we receive Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. What a gift!
Today also kicks off a national, three-year Eucharistic Revival. The bishops of the United States have called for a dedicated time of prayer and reflection as we renew our profound love and awe at the mystery of the Holy Eucharist. This Revival will include different opportunities at the national, diocesan, and parish level to enter more deeply into this central mystery of our Faith.
Of course, we at Holy Spirit have been observing our own Year of the Eucharist, which continues through All Saints Day. The timing is truly providential, as we've had this occasion to lay the spiritual groundwork for the ongoing efforts of the Revival. Here at the parish, we will continue our efforts to deepen our worship and love of Jesus Christ, truly present in the Holy Eucharist, through our celebration of the sacraments, communal and private prayer, and ongoing formation.
I'll keep you posted as more details about the Eucharistic Revival are shared with us, and as our own Year of the Eucharist continues. God bless you!
