Pope at Corpus Christi: ‘The Bread of Life Has Come Down to Us!’

Vatican City State, June 04, 2015     

So that we may be free from sins and cleansed, Jesus shed his blood, Pope Francis recalled at this evening’s Corpus Christi procession.

In his Corpus Christi homily Thursday evening in the courtyard of St. John Lateran, the Pope underscored, “Jesus shed his blood as a price and as cleansing, that we might be clean from all sins,” which therefore allows us to experience “the grace of a transformation.” …

Corpus Christi Procession Sunday, June 7

We will be having a Corpus Christi Procession on Sunday, June 7 after the 10:30am Mass at St Joseph Church. We will process from St Joseph Church about three blocks to St Mary Church. with a brief adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Food is to follow.

Profess your faith in the community. We believe in Jesus and would follow Him anywhere! Exodous 13:21 through 22 says, “The Lord preceded them, in the daytime by means of a column of cloud to show them the way, and at night by means of a column of fire to give them light. Thus they could travel both day and night. Neither the column of cloudby day nor the column of fire by night ever left its place in front of the people.” We will follow Jesus in the same way. The Jewish people followed God and He brought them to victory and freedom from slavery. We too follow Him and win the victory over sin and death because he won for us freedom from our just punishment.

If you are still in bondage, then start following Him our Saviour. Make that pledge to Jesus that leads to salvation! Join us in Following Jesus!
