Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

A Word from Fr. Bob

Dear Church Family,

As you know by now that my spiritual trust and spiritual longing is to be in union with God here and in eternity. My kingdom come has happened here and will continue into eternity. You probably heard me say with passion and emotion, “What I long far is to love my God as totally as I can and to accept Him totally loving me and to be aware that He loves everybody the same but, humbly with my spiritual acumen I am on a mission of searching for a deeper union with the Lord.” This is manifested and I am blessed by it by being able to just enjoy my relationship with Jesus, with the Father, and the Holy Spirit. We come to a very special awareness this day by celebrating the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in Holy Communion.

Then all the more I am enthralled with wonderful feelings that my God comes to me in a very powerful way every time I receive Him in Holy Communion. I desire to do it often, if not daily, if given the opportunity. Sometimes on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday, I don’t always have a scheduled Mass. On Tuesdays I delight in learning about my deeper relationship with the Lord by studying scriptures with a number of colleagues, brothers and sisters in the Lord, who love the Word and want to preach the Word. On Thursdays my day off, sometimes I am able to start it with only one person attending, Shirley Robinson. Everybody seems to know that Monday, Wednesday and Fridays are the big time when I celebrate the Lord’s Supper with my fellow Catholics which are usually four or five and about fifteen people of other faiths and persuasions. I go around and give them a blessing prayer to help them grow in their own scared traditions. But in my and your tradition as Catholics we totally believe the Lord is present in the bread and wine totally His body and blood, soul and divinity, His all is given to us and we celebrate that especially today in this great Feast Day of the Body and Blood of Christ. Alleluia!

Love, Fr. Bob
