FATHER ABEL’S COLUMN – JUNE 7TH, 2015

eucharistToday we celebrate the beautiful feast of Corpus Christi, the Body and Blood of our Lord! Today we continue to thank God for the great gift of Jesus to us in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharistic is the source and summit of our life as Catholics. At the Last Supper, Jesus took bread and a cup of wine, blessed them and gave it to his apostles at table. Then he commanded them to celebrate this meal until he come again in glory. Jesus comes to us as food for the joining. As we receive Him we grow in wisdom and strength. As we receive Him we become more like Him.

Today is also our 8th Annual Corpus Christi Procession around the streets of Woodside. I look forward to this as it is another opportunity to show the community our love for Jesus in the Eucharist.

Finally, Please don’t forget about my installation as Pastor next Saturday at 5pm Mass. There will be a wonderful reception with sandwiches, etc. to celebrate this occasion.

Thank you for your support.
