Our Lady of Clonfert, Stay close to me today.
Guide my study and light my way.
Ease my nerves and comfort me,
with peace and love so tenderly.
May I remember the things I need.
May I strive to give my best.
During the moments I may feel stressed,
I’ll try and remember the ways I am blessed.
And if there are times when I feel at sea,
Help me trust that you are here with me.
Our Lady of Clonfert bless me this day and always.
The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)
Jesus welcomes the crowd, taught them, and cured those in need of healing. Recall the ways in which the story of Jesus and his message have brought you enlightenment, and healing. Today we are invited to walk in the footsteps of Jesus by welcoming people affected by Covid, displaced by war, or struggling to make ends meet. Perhaps in the face of these difficulties you feel helpless. So did his disciples and yet Jesus said to them ‘You give them something to eat’. They thought what had been insufficient, but Jesus used the little they had to feed the crowd. Have you ever found that when you give the little you have to a situation, the results were beyond your expectations? The miracle is symbolic of the abundance of blessings coming to us from God through Jesus. How has your faith in Jesus been a source of nourishment to you? What blessings have you received through your faith?
