Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
On this Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, we celebrate the great gift of the Eucharist, the source and summit of our faith as Catholic Christians. I am glad we are able to bring back our Eucharistic Procession after a two year break. What a great way to witness publicly to the Elizabethtown community our belief in the real presence. Our Lord, Jesus, has not abandoned us, but has remained with us sacramentally to nourish us and fill us with his grace by this most perfect gift.
We also take time this weekend to remember the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform throughout the history of our nation. Also, please pray for all those who are currently serving in the armed forces, especially parishioners and members of our families.
Peace, Fr. Steve
