The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

My Companions, pray with me: Lord, may we give you glory in our thoughts, words, and deeds as we accept the gift of the body and blood of Christ. May we allow your life and love to shine through us. Forgive us for our selfishness and sin. Thank you for all your gifts, especially for this Holy Sacrament. Please touch all those on our sick list with your healing, comforting hand. And guide those who have gone before us to your light and love, especially on this Memorial Day we pray for the soldiers, sailors, marines, and members of the Air force and Coast Guard who gave their lives for our freedom.
  We ask all of this in Jesus name. 

Companion Events:   Birthdays:  Eloise Georgian (5/29), Marrilou Huemann (5/31),  Al Hardy (6/2). Anniversary: Fr. Ed Poehlman (5/27/67), Nancy & Tom Neihart (5/27/71), Linda & Larry Kent (6/1/--).

Keeping In-touch: I played lots of golf; Marge did lots of planning for trips. The warm weather brings many opportunities for yard work and other tasks. This morning we participated in a beautiful prayer for the men and women who served in the armed forces and have gone before us.

Some Commentary for prayer or study: The Sunday Website

My comments and an invitation for your comments: Oh what a great Mystery we have in our concrete experience of union with God in the Body and Blood of Christ.
