Corpus Christi

As Catholic the theme this week is probably one of the most important themes of the year. This Sunday we celebrate the feast day of Corpus Christi. Many churches will have Adoration during the weekend, where we venerate and praise Jesus through the Blessed Sacrament.

For Catholics, the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. The night before Jesus died, he took break, broke it giving thanks and said “This is my body, given for you … do this in remembrance of me”.  Luke 22:19.  Every mass is both a remembrance and a celebration of the Last Supper, Crucifixion and of course Resurrection of Jesus. The gospel reading would be a great starting point to read in class during the week. Psalm 15 also poses some deep reflective questions too.

If any class would like to come down to the chapel for Adoration during form time, please let me know and I can organise this for you.

Scripture passages to reflect on:

Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. He had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread.    Luke 24.31a,35

Jesus said, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’  John 6.35

The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread.  1 Corinthians 10.16,17

As often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.  1 Corinthians 11.26

Have a blessed week,
