The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ- Corpus Christi












This Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. This feast is also known by its Latin name of Corpus Christi. It is a time when we commemorate the giving by Jesus of His Body and Blood to us by His freely chosen death and resurrection. At the same time we commemorate the great gift of the Sacrament of the Eucharist that He gave us on Holy Thursday. 


As we reflect on the gift that Jesus gave us, the gift of salvation through His giving of His Body and Blood both sacramentally and physically on the cross,  we need to honestly ask ourselves a few questions. How well do I proclaim the death of the Lord through my participation in the Eucharistic celebration?  When I leave church after participation in the Eucharist, do I continue to proclaim the death and resurrection of Jesus by the way I treat others? 


We also remember this Sunday all of the Fathers amongst us. May God bless them on their special day!

What is the feast of Corpus Christi?


Corpus Christi (also known as the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ) is a celebration of Jesus Christ truly present in the Eucharist. Every Mass is a participation in and celebration of this sacrifice, but the feast of Corpus Christi is a time to be especially aware of the gift of the Eucharist. 


As Catholics, it can sometimes be hard to truly believe that the Holy Communion we receive at Mass is actually Jesus' body. This year on Corpus Christi (celebrated on June 19th), ask Jesus to help you fully understand the mystery of his real presence in the Eucharist. A simple prayer you can say is, "Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief."



“If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion.”  

St. Maximilian Kolbe












A good father is an immeasurable gift and something our world is in need of today. Join us in praying for all fathers this Father's Day...

  • For our biological fathers on earth--that God protects and blesses them with the strength necessary to live their vocation and role as a father well
  • For our biological fathers who have passed from this life--that they are living in the presence of Jesus in heaven.
  • For our priests, Bishop, and Pope--that Jesus blesses them with joy and courage to fully live out their vocation as spiritual fathers to their flock.
  • For all those who play a fatherly role in our lives--that St. Joseph helps them to lead, instruct, and live as examples of holy men

Whether you have a beautiful or a broken relationship with your own biological father (or any father figures in your life), you can always turn to God our Father, and to St. Joseph, the head of the Holy Family for comfort and guidance throughout your life.

If you're a father in any capacity, ask St. Joseph to guide you in your role. He was the foster-father of Jesus Christ--he raised the Savior of the world! There's no better example of an earthly father than him!


"The position of St. Joseph as husband and foster father gives witness to the dignity of fatherhood."

Venerable Joseph Mindszenty
