FIFTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME. THE MOST HOLY REDEEMER.

Jn 3:13-18. 21
Jesus said to Nicodemus:
“No one has gone up to heaven except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.

PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTS

15TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - JULY 15, 2018

IMPORTANT Summer Mass Schedule will begin next weekend and end on September 2, (Labor Day Weekend). Changes are made to accommodate smaller attendance and better make use of the priestly manpower. During Summer Schedule we will have one Vigil Mass at 5:00PM at Sacred Heart. As we did last year, 8:30AM Mass at Sacred Heart and the 10:30AM Mass at Christ the King have been eliminated.

Monday – Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Wednesday – St. Camillus de Lellis
Friday – St. Apolinaris
Saturday – St. Lawrence de Brindisi

We are in need of workers for the festival. We especially need help at 7AM for grounds clean up and beginning at 9AM in the auditorium to prepare food for that evening. We also need people to help clean up in the Potato Pancake Booth and the outdoor kitchen at the end of the night. You can sign up on-line. REGISTER TODAY Also, there are lawn signs available at the parish office for those who would like to advertise on their property.

Next weekend will be the last chance to purchase your advance food tickets for the Festival. For $20 you get $25 worth of food tickets. It’s a great bargain. There are also Advance Ride Wristbands on sale for $12 each.

Also, next weekend, the altar servers will be collecting donations for their trip to Dorney Park. Please help them out.

We have had to replace the air-conditioning in Sacred Heart Church. If anyone would like to contribute to the cost of this replacement it would help a great deal with this expense.

Thank you for your contributions. Last week, our collections totaled $11,001. The second collection taken up after Holy Communion will be the Christ the Redeemer collection. Please be generous.

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

Dear Friends,

Greetings in Christ!

The Feast of the Sacred Body and Precious Blood of Christ, or as its more commonly called “Corpus Christi” is a perfect opportunity to talk about how we should conduct ourselves in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

1

Genuflection: When we walk into the Church, we genuflect toward the Tabernacle. When you go to genuflect, pause and do it slowly.

2

Language: it’s not the “bread and wine” once the consecration happens: it’s the Body and Blood of Christ.

3

Our body posture: make sure we try our best to show reverence and intentionality when we are ministering the Eucharist or receiving it.

4

We do not take the host out of the priest’s hands, we receive. That’s why when we receive, we do it one of two ways:
- If we receive on the hands, we make a throne with our hands: right hand under and left hand on top (if we are right handed).
- If we receive on the tongue, we make sure that we do so in a way that makes it easy to receive: chin up, tongue extended.

5

Whatever way we receive, we want to be sure that we give a loud and clear “Amen” to the statement “The Body (or Blood) of Christ”.

6

We show proper reverence and reflection when we process forward to receive Him. The communion line is not an appropriate time to socialize with those we walk by: we focus on Jesus in the Eucharist.

7

We avoid chewing gum during Mass and make sure that, if we are distributing The Eucharist, we act with great love and reverence.

8

We help those who come to Church but are not Catholic. We do so by explaining beforehand what the Eucharist is and why we ask those who are not Catholic to not receive it.

St. Paul tells us that “Whoever eats the flesh without considering it eats and drinks their condemnation”. It’s that important! May our love and reverence for the Eucharist translate into a deep love and reverence for each other!

God bless you!

Fr.Stan
