FED BY THE LORD Jesus' words "This is my body" and "This cup is
the new covenant in my blood" were only part of his table blessing.
Jesus twice said: "Do this in remembrance of me" (1 Corinthians
This is the good news of today's solemnity. Like the five
souls, we are fed by our Lord. This is not food that satisfies
for only a short time, until the next meal.
It is food that lasts and changes us. It is food for sharing in
much the same way as Melchizedek did when he brought bread and wine
to the returning Abraham.
As children of God's reign, we are blessed to be able to receive
and share God's gift.

ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
Oh Jesus, I turn toward the holy tabernacle where You live
hidden for love of me. I love you, O my God. I cannot now receive
You in Holy Communion. Come, nevertheless, and visit me with Your
grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Purify it. Sanctify it.
Render it like unto Your own. Amen.
Lord, I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof, but
only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

If you have a big heart for kids and love to teach Saint Paul
might be the place for you. At Saint Paul, you don't just teach the
data you get to teach the rest. The fruit of our school is its
graduates and we are looking for two great teachers to join our
team where our students are formed spiritually, intellectually,
socially and physically.
We have small classes, a great curriculum, few extra duties and
prayer and worship is part of your week at Saint Paul. Our benefits
are great, our pay per student is higher than most every public
school, and our teachers get to be creative.
If this sounds like a school you want to be a part of please
send me your resume and set aside some time for an interview over
the next couple of weeks. We are just about to finish a great year
at Saint Paul and are looking forward to a bright future.
It is hard to believe we have been at this for 129 years in New
Bern, NC. Saint Paul is one of over 30 Catholic Schools in Eastern
North Carolina. We are small but we are part of a much larger
school system that loves teaching children and introducing them to
the person who matters most in their life, Jesus Christ.
Contact Deacon Dave Kierski at [email protected] or call the
school - 633-0100.

CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY
In and through Christ, God is visible in his mercy. He speaks of
it and explains it in parables, but above all he himself makes it
incarnate and personifies it. HE HIMSELF IS MERCY.
To the one who sees it in him, God becomes “visible” in a clear
way as “the Father who is rich in mercy.” In this Jubilee Year of
Mercy let us live every day in the glorious message of past seasons
that Jesus, Emmanuel,
is with us still – forever – as merciful Savior and Advocate.
Even when we move away in our thoughts, words and deeds, he is here
for us, for he never moves!! Have
mercy on us, Jesus. Join us for the Chaplet each Sunday at
10:30AM in the Chapel

Bishop welcomes Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament of Onitsha
(Nigeria) to the Diocese!
The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Raleigh is
pleased to welcome the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament of Onitsha
(Nigeria) established residence and a headquarters for their Order
in the United
States at the Saint Alphonus Center in Wilson, on May 15th
Founded in 1995, in Onitsha, Nigeria, the Sisters of the Blessed
Sacrament are an Institute of Consecrated Life of Diocesan Right,
currently with 75 members of the community world-wide. The charism
of the Order is adoration of Our Lord in the Most Holy Eucharist
and their apostolates are the production of sacred vessels and
liturgical vesture, care of the elderly, the sick and the poor, as
well as religious education. Their motto is “God First”.
Bishop Burbidge stated, “I welcome the Sisters of the Blessed
Sacrament to the Diocese of Raleigh, especially as they establish
their headquarters in the United States. The Sisters bring great
joy to all those they encounter as they exercise their apostolates,
especially to those who are ill and most in need. Most importantly
though, I welcome their charism of prayer, as this is essential for
us to exercise the mission of Christ in our Diocese, as we attend
the many pastoral and spiritual needs of all those entrusted to our
care here in eastern North Carolina.
Please join in welcoming the Sisters as part of our Diocesan
family and in praying that Our Lord may bless their community with
an increase in vocations to the
consecrated life, especially from our Diocese.”
