On the feast of Corpus Christi we have an opportunity to reverently expose our Lord not just to the faithful, but to any persons who may witness our procession of the Blessed Sacrament through the streets. We have a chance to demonstrate our love for Christ’s Real Presence by honoring Him in public. Our procession is therefore a great opportunity for charity since we will be bringing our Lord closer to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity.

From Father Fasching

The feast of Corpus Christi allows us the opportunity to focus solely on the Eucharist. Praying to Christ before the Blessed Sacrament has always drawn me closer to Him. It is why I became a priest and what sustains me in my priestly ministry. When a priest offers the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, he does so as one who is uniquely configured to the person of Christ. The Eucharist calls the priest to holiness. It is the most efficacious grace to that end for all of us. As I strive toward holiness of life, I offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass each day. Therefore, I am transformed into the One whom I love. Each day I ascend the altar I pronounce the words:


In Christ,

Rev. Jeffery A. Fasching
