The annual glorious Corpus Christi Procession was once again a marvel to behold. The burning sun radiated forcefully its hot rays and pushed the temperature to the low 90s - an image of the Burning Love of the furnace of the Divine Heart of Jesus - present in the Most Holy Eucharist. There is nothing more wonderful to partake of than to worship Jesus in the Monstrance as we process along the two stations. We witness to one of the deepest truths of our faith - the real presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Who can fathom God's infinite Love and Goodness in this sublime mystery? The flower girls were very excited to be part of the special event and enjoyed practicing tossing the petals. The whole parish looks forward every year to this testimony of our love for Him. This year, in addition to Father Mullen and Deacon Dave, we were blessed to have Fr. Jaehwa (from Philadelphia) join in concelebrating the Mass and joining in the procession.
We post events, news and reflections in this section of our site and be sure to come back regularly for updates.
TO ADORE OUR LORD!
The Franciscan Handmaids of the Immaculate seek daily to draw closer to Our Lord. Adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament is fundamental to Our spiritual life as we seek to conform our hearts unto His. Additionally, praying the Liturgy of the Hours, the rosary, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and the Sorrows, we place ourselves in the Immaculate Heart of Mary, asking Her to bring us closer to Her Son.
