Theme:  LIVING BREAD FROM HEAVEN - JESUS HIMSELF

THE MOST HOLY BODY and BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST

 

"They recognised Him at the Breaking of Bread"

 

"THIS IS MY BODY BROKEN FOR YOU - MY BLOOD SHED FOR YOU"

"I AM THE LIVING BREAD COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN"

"He who eats this BREAD will live for ever" - ETERNITY!

MY FLESH IS REAL FOOD AND MY BLOOD IS REAL DRINK"

 

Why were the Martyrs hanged at the Reformation?

TO PRESERVE THE SACRIFICE OF THE MASS!

 

This is the incredible dignity of the Priesthood - a power not given to the Angels - that

I SHOULD OFFER GOD TO GOD.

" I am with you ALWAYS" - that's why the Sanctuary Lamp is always burning. That's why we always genuflect.

 

AND SADLY, AS WE KNOW ONLY TOO WELL, FAMILIARITY BREEDS LACK OF APPRECIATION AND EVEN INDIFFERENCE.

 

"LORD, I DO BELIEVE, HELP THOU MY UNBELIEF"

 

AND IN THE WORDS OF JAMIE OLIVER: "YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT"!

And to end with food, glorious food!

☺For some people, a balanced diet is chocolate in each hand”

☺A double complaint! “The food in that restaurant is terrible. And they

 give such small portions!”

☺Yet another complaint. “The trouble with Italian food is that 5 or 6

 days later you feel hungry again!”

☺“I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food”!!

☺“Darling, I’ve made the chicken soup” “Thank you dear, I thought it

  was for me”!!

☺There is a brand new Chinese diet. Eat as much as you want but with

 only one chopstick.!!!

 And my favourite!  

 Can you explain why people order Double Cheeseburger, large fries and

 a diet coke?!!!

And finally, finally! (the pearl of all pearls)

"Fr. John, is God a woman?"

"Joanne, God is an all powerful being, able to give life, be everywhere at

 once AND IS INFALLIBLE. Of course then HE MUST BE A WOMAN"!!!

 

HAPPY FEAST DAY!
