This weekend, June 14th we celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi. This page is dedicated to helping us all dig deeper into our understanding of one of the central truths of our Catholic Faith which is the true presence of Christ in the Eucharist. We will start with the homily from Fr. Gerry.
St. Ignatius Loyola gave us a powerful prayer to use after receiving the Eucharist. Try praying this after you receive the Eucharist physically or spiritually and see how God answers your prayers.:
Soul of Christ, sanctify me,
Body of Christ,save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me,
Water from the side of Christ,wash me
Passion of Christ,strengthen me,
O Good Jesus,hear me
Within thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from thee
From the malignant enemy defend me
In the hour of my death,call me
And bid me come unto Thee,
That with all Thy Saints,
I may praise thee forever and ever. AMEN
