In the celebration of Corpus Christi we recognise and rejoice in the blessing given to us in the Sacrament of the Eucharist. This is at the heart of the Catholic faith and we believe that receiving the body and blood of Christ is life-giving and also binds us together as one community.
If the Eucharist is at the heart of our community we are challenged to see how we can live out the challenge of being a disciple today. A few questions to prompt us to think about how we can achieve this…
- What can we do each day to be more Christ-like?
- If Jesus walked amongst us today what would be the key issues that were important to him in the world today?
- What can you do to be Christ’s body in our own community at St. Paul’s?
In essence I believe we all have an important part to play, however small it might be. We are privileged to be in a position to inspire, support and influence the lives of our students in a special way in all we do each day. If it doesn’t make any difference to them why should we bother?
As we prepare to celebrate St. Paul’s Day this week perhaps this encapsulates all that is best about our community – energy, happiness, love, care, faith, support, celebrating being as “one family”.
Let’s make it special in our Jubilee Year and really give everyone a “glimpse of heaven” as we build our community each day.
