From the Corner Office is Father Mike's weekly bulletin column.
Today's feast is The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ – The Most Holy Eucharist. The readings draw from the Old Testament book of Genesis with the story of Melchizedek as king, bringing out bread and wine as he blessed Abram. St. Paul in his letter to the Corinthians discusses the handing down of the Holy Eucharist, and how by sharing in this memorial the Corinthians, and all of us, are proclaiming the death of Jesus. Both of these readings, then build up to St. Luke’s account of the feeding of the five thousand. This story from St. Luke is often shown as the building up to the Last Supper. We have Jesus in this story, satisfying our worldly hunger, but later at the Last Supper, Jesus feeds us spiritually. This shows the duality, and that the spiritual feeding is the more lasting supper that Jesus leaves for us – the Most Holy Eucharist.
From the Pastor’s Desk:
One more year has just passed by – did you notice it? The fact that we will be celebrating the Feast of St. Thomas More on Wednesday brings us to a new year. This year moving forward, as we have talked about, will be a year of dedication to the Holy Spirit. We as the Parish and School of St. Thomas More will pray and ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit, on how we might best serve the parish, the community, and our families, as we look for each of our own callings at this particular time in all our lives.
The Summer of Fun 2022 schedules have been out now for a few weeks. We will celebrate a special Mass Wednesday evening for our patronage feast day and then celebrate with ice cream afterwards as a community time of fun. Check your schedules and bring a friend (or more) to celebrate the feast of St. Thomas More and our parish family of faith.
Parishioners can access hundreds of movies, ebooks, short-series and more via FORMED.
