Sunday, May 29, was the Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), and GS parishioners participated in our annual procession. (The procession is in Spanish, with English translations provided.) Parishioners walk from Mount Vernon High School to the church, stopping along the way for reflection, prayer, and singing. The theme for this year's procession was "The Corporal Works of Mercy." This blog post is one of the reflections offered during this year's procession.
Lord, when our first parents - Adam and Eve - sinned against you, sickness of mind, body, and spirit entered your perfect creation. Then you sent your Son, Jesus, to come into that same world to destroy the power of death and to provide us divine nourishment to feed and heal our souls. In that same outpouring of love, your Son commanded that those who love Him, love one another.
