  • Take it; this is my body...This is my blood... June 2-3 2018

    Gospel Reading Mark 14:12-16,22-26

    Jesus shares his Last Supper with his disciples.

    Background on the Gospel Reading

    Today, the second Sunday after Pentecost, we celebrate a second solemni-ty, which marks our return to Ordinary Time in the liturgical calendar. To-day is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. At one time, this day was called Corpus Christi, the Latin words for the Body of Christ. In the most recent revision of our liturgical rites, the name for this day is expanded to be a more complete reflection of our Eucharistic theolo-


    The Gospel of Mark describes Jesus Last Supper with his disciples as a celebration of the Jewish feast of Passover. The Jewish celebration of Passover is a memorial to and a ritual participation in the defining moment of Israels history. It celebrates Gods deliverance of his people from slav-ery in Egypt. The Passover meal includes many ritually important ele-ments, such as unleavened bread, lamb, and bitter herbs. Each food item recalls an aspect of the Exodus event. The instructions for the preparation of this meal are carefully prescribed in the Law of Moses. It is a central obligation of the Jewish faith tradition to celebrate this meal and to give

    thanks to God for his deliverance and protection.

    In the description of the Passover meal found in todays Gospel, however, Mark omits many elements of the Jewish Passover meal. Instead he de-scribes only those elements he believes to be most essential to the Chris-tian Eucharist: Jesus took bread, blessed the bread, broke the bread, and shared it with his disciples. Similar words and actions follow as Jesus shares the chalice with his disciples. This bread now shared is Jesus own body. Those who drink from the chalice are invited to share in a new cove-nant which will be sealed by Jesus own blood. Marks Eucharistic theolo-

    gy looks forward to the Kingdom of God that Jesus inaugurates.

    Annual Parish Picnic: We Need Your Help

    When: June 14 at 9 am in the Parish Center

    We will need help pinching the potato and cheese pierogi. Also: We are looking for the following used items that are in good condition: pocketbooks, scarves and costume jewelry for our parish picnic sale. These items can be brought to the Parish Center on Saturday, July 14 from 9am-12 pm.


    Session 2 of the training/updating will take place on Monday, June 4 in the church. Eucharistic Ministers will meet at 6:pm, and readers at 7:pm. All current and new ministers are expected to attend.

    Visitor Coming to MHR Sr. Mary Fisher (Missionary Sisters for Africa) will be visiting MHR during all Masses on the weekend of June 9-10. The Franciscan Missionary Sisters for Africa began in 1903 in Uganda when Mother Kevin and 5 companions took the risk to leave country, family and friends to travel to Africa. Inspired by her spirit and leadership, schools, hospitals, clinics, and training institutes were established in Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. Mother Kevin pioneered the education of African women as reli-gious sisters, nurses, midwives, and teachers. Today work is being done on issues of trafficking of women and children, care of street children, the poor and destitute, and involvement in prison ministry. Sr. Mary Fisher is a member of the Missionary Sisters for Africa. After 41 years of ministry in Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, and South Africa, Sr. Mary was asked to return to the States to help raise funds for the Congregation. For 31 years Sr. Mary was involved in a spir-itual ministry offering courses on prayer, discernment, spiritual growth, as well as being available for a ministry offering retreats and spiritual direction. We look forward to Sr. Marys visit next weekend.
