The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)
Mark 14:12-16, 22-26
Q. I want to raise my kids in the faith and help them navigate the world to make good decisions. Obviously, I cannot shelter them from everything, or they will grow up being naive. But I cannot just let them be completely influenced by the world, either. Any thoughts on how to let kids be a part of the world but not of the world?
“Sing, my tongue, the Savior’s glory, of His Flesh, the mystery sing; of the Blood, all price exceeding, shed by our Immortal King, destined, for the world’s redemption, from a noble Womb to spring” (Hymn Pange Lingua, St. Thomas Aquinas).

Divine Mercy Sunday
1 John 5:1-6
Q. What do you do when you are in bad temptation, and you seem to like the sin you are going to commit more than what is right?
Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.
