As we celebrate the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ this Sunday, the Fiftieth International Eucharistic Congress begins in Dublin.  Bishop Oudeman will be representing the Archdiocese of Brisbane at the Congress.  Archbishop Coleridge has asked us to remember this Congress in our prayers over the coming week.  He notes the “debt of gratitude” that we owe to the Church in Ireland, and asks that we pray that “Ireland will know a new surge of Gospel energy and become once again a missionary power-house within the universal Church.”

For those in Brisbane, don’t forget the Corpus Christi procession and benediction tomorrow (Sunday 10 June 2012) at Nudgee Junior College, Indooroopilly.  All are invited to participate as a demonstration of our love for Jesus, our Eucharistic Lord.

This coming Sunday, 10 June 2012, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.  The feast is an opportunity for us to give thanks for the great gift Christ has given to us: the sacrament of his Body and Blood in the Eucharist.  What a blessing it is to have his sacramental presence with us, until the end of time.

Many parishes and dioceses will do extra things this weekend to celebrate our Eucharistic faith.

In Brisbane, Archbishop Mark Coleridge will preside and preach at the Eucharistic Procession at Nudgee Junior College, at 2pm.  All are invited to join this special celebration.  (Note: this is not Mass, so you’ll still need to go to Mass in your parish)!
