CORPUS CHRISTI- Could you stay one hour with me?
There will be no Corpus Christi procession this year, however, on the day, Sunday 22 June, there will be Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament which will begin after the 12pm Mass until 5 pm.
At 4.30pm there will be Evening Prayer followed by Benediction.
A reporter once interviewed Mother Theresa. He asked her about prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament:
“What do you say to God when you pray,” he inquired.
“Nothing,” replied Mother Theresa. “I just listen.”
“What does God say to you?” he responded, rather derisively.
“Nothing,” replied Mother Theresa. “He just listens.”
That’s what prayer before the Blessed Sacrament can become. We are still, silent, and we listen to God listening to us. And the more time we spend before the Blessed Sacrament in silence, the more we will begin to hear God listen, the more aware we will become of his presence in our lives.
Everyone welcome to come spend some quiet time on this special day in the Church’s Year.
