  • Dynamic Catholic, Alive! Corpus Christi - The Blessed Sacrament

    The Solemnity of Corpus Christi is celebrated on the first Sun- day after the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. This feast began with St. Juliana, a young Belgian nun in the thirteenth century, who received in prayer an inspiration for a feast that would celebrate and promote the gift of the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist. This feast would eventually spread throughout the province, continent, and world. Corpus Christi and its accompanying procession with the Blessed Sac- rament, celebrating the sacrament and signifying God’s pres- ence in our world and in our lives and reminding us of our com- mon pilgrimage to Heaven, is a prayerful and edifying act of the entire Church. As a general rule, devotions are not men- tioned in the Code of Canon Law. However, because of the importance of this devotion in the life of the Church, Canon 944 mentions it: “When it can be done in the judgment of the diocesan bishop, as a public witness of the veneration toward the Most Holy Eucharist, a procession is to be conducted through the public streets, especially on the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.” On this feast we can express our gratitude for the opportunity to receive our Lord every Sunday in the Eucharist, to adore Him in prayer, and to show Him to the rest of the world in the streets of our Archdiocese.

    St. Joseph Parish Mission Statement In response to our baptismal call from Jesus Christ, we the people of St. Joseph Parish, as members of the Roman Catholic Church,

    desire to live and teach our faith in our families, school, and workplace, relying on the Word of God and the grace of the sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist.

    Prayer of Spiritual Communion

    My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You have already come, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

    We want to welcome our new Archbishop Mitchell Rozanski to St. Louis. Most impor-

    tantly we need to pray for him. We look at these changes with anticipation because of what new leadership might look like for us. We usually are fearful of the worse. But we also need to consider what starting over in a new location with new issues and all new faces means for him. Our job then is to welcome him with open arms. We need to give him time to settle in, to get to know people and the issues that are part of our story. Most importantly we need to pray for him. We all, the Archbishop, those who work at the Cardinal Rigali Center of- fices, the priests, deacons, and laity, all make up this Archdio- cese. In order for us to progress into the future, it takes all of us supporting each other and working together to do God’s work here. Let us pray for each other this week.

    Stewardship Awareness “Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread.” 1 Corinthians 10:17 As disciples of Jesus, we are called to lead holy lives and invite others to join us. Living a stewardship lifestyle, being grateful and generous with our gifts, serves a twofold purpose. One, it helps build God’s king- dom here on earth. Two, it helps us strengthen each other’s relation- ship with God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. It becomes our road map to Heaven. Let’s help each other get there!
