"That they may all be ONE"

Corpus Christi

This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi). In the Holy Eucharist Jesus nourishes us with His own Body and Blood as we hear in our Gospel today.

Each of us come to Church bearing our own burdens of personal problems, seeking consolation, reconciliation and peace. We hunger and thirst for the Word of God and to be fed with the most Holy Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist. We want to experience the close and intimate parish family of faith here in St. John Neumann through the participation of the Liturgy and sharing of fellowship. We are all here simply seeking the peace and joy of Christ in the Eucharist.

The theme of the Eucharistic Congress this weekend is, “That they may all be ONE.” (Jn 17:21) All of us are here forming ONE Mystical Body of Christ which is the Church. We are here to be sent out and be Christ's disciples in today’s world to work for Unity and Peace. May the Holy Eucharist transform us to become the hands and feet of Our Lord.

Happy Feast of Corpus Christi!
