Corpus Christi Procession - 3pm Today: After all the great Feasts of the year ranging from Christmas to Easter to Pentecost ending in the celebration of the sublime Trinity, we come to Corpus Christi (15th June in the Old Rite and 18th in the New Rite). In this feast we see the outpouring of the love of God for us in the Eucharist. The Manna of old kept the first people of God on their way through unexpected and bewildering terrains. Today we honour the Lord by the greatest procession of the year. Our First Communicants and those to be confirmed will lead the way, with accompanying trumpets and drum. Come and honour the Lord passing through your parish! Today the King of Kings comes through our own streets and we should be for at least some of it; walking with or waiting here the Lord. Processions have a meaning in that we walk together in the same direction. In other words it sums up our whole Christian life which we live with others and for others, always conscious of the direction of our lives which is of course the Kingdom of Heaven.
Next Weekend - Confirmations: Bishop Patrick Lynch will be here to confirm our 18 candidates at the 12.30 Mass. On Saturday we will have a preparation day starting at 11.30 & on Sunday, all candidates should be at St Bede’s school by 11.45 for the group photo.
