You Are Invited To Our Corpus Christi Sunday Celebration


 
 
The Eucharist is the sacrament of communion that brings us out of individualism so that we may follow the Lord together, living out our faith in him. (Pope Francis)
With faith and joy the Dominican Nuns
of Corpus Christi Monastery
cordially invite you to join us in celebrating
our Patronal Feast Day on 
 
Corpus Christi Sunday
22 June 2014
at 10:30 a.m. 
 
at Corpus Christi Monastery, 215 Oak Grove Avenue
Menlo Park, California
 
in giving thanks to God for
the inexpressible gift he has given us in Christ Jesus,
to the praise of God's glory.

Benediction will follow
Mass Celebrant and Homilist
Rev. Ambrose Sigman, O.P.
 
This special Mass on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi - the Body and Blood of Christ- will be offered for the intentions of our benefactors, family, friends, altar bread customers and their parishioners who help support our life of prayer and contemplation.  You may also send in your petitions to be placed on the Altar on Corpus Christi Sunday or email us at: DominicanNuns@nunsmenlo.org

 Jesus...gives himself to us in the Eucharist, shares in our journey, indeed he makes himself food, the true food that sustains our life also in moments when the road becomes hard-going and obstacles slow our steps.  And in the Eucharist the Lord makes us walk on his road, that of service, of sharing, of giving..." (Pope Franics' homily on the Feast of Corpus Christi.)

"The form of contemplative life, which you received from the hands of St Dominic in the manner of the cloister, places you as living, vital members in the heart of the Mystical Body of the Lord, which is the Church; and just as the heart makes the blood circulate and keeps the whole body alive, so your hidden existence with Christ, where work and prayer alternate, helps to sustain the Church, the instrument of salvation for every person whom the Lord has redeemed with his Blood."
-Pope Benedict XVI, Meeting with Dominican Cloistered Nuns at the Monastery of Santa Maria del Rosario.
