On this feast day of Corpus Christi we meditate upon the Gospel passage about the last supper. On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread while they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, gave it to them, and said, “Take it; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, and they all drank from it. He said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many.” Jesus offered his body and blood to the disciples and instituted the Holy Eucharist. We today experience the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, the cen- ter of our life and spiritual nourishment.
Month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Pray to the Sacred Heart of Jesus to protect us and our families and make our hearts humble and pure.
We are celebrating the feast of St. Anthony on June 13 with Solemn Holy Mass 5:30P.M. Let us ask the intercession of St. Anthony to help our parish community grow in faith and unity.
Fr. Jilson and I just celebrated our first anniversary in Brooklyn. We both started our ministry with enthusiasm and hope. So far we both enjoyed our ministry in the parish. We together prayed, worked and walked. We see the spiritual and physical growth in the parish. We earnestly thank everyone for the encouragement, hospitality and cooperation. We have miles to walk together. Trusting in your support we move on to the first step of the stair case going up. St. Anthony, pray for us!
