Dear Parishioners and Visitors:
“I Am the Bread of Life”
Jesus Christ is present in the Eucharist in his body and blood, humanity and divinity, under the forms of bread and wine. The church teaches that this presence is not a metaphor, it’s a reality. But how do we arrive at this idea? Jesus himself promises to be with us “always, to the end of time.” He promises to be present when two or more gather in his name, in the forgiveness of sins, and in the suffering world: “Whatever you did for one of these least . . . you did for me.” Jesus promises to be really present in many ways throughout the gospel. He’s most explicit about being with us, however, in one profound way: “Take it; this is my body … I am the bread of life … whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life”.
“O Come, Let Us Adore Him”
Beginning with lowly shepherds tending their flocks, to a multitude of singing angels, to Magi from the East, followers of Christ have been taking time to visit and adore Jesus. You are most welcome to visit the church between 8:30 A.M. and 3:00 P.M. for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. Just come by. We would love to see you there … as would Jesus in the True Presence of the Eucharist.
With prayerful best wishes,
Fr. John Mahoney
