Corpus Christi Sunday Celebrates and honours the presence of Jesus Christ’s Body and Blood in the Eucharist.
O Christ, let my greatest delight be to see you loved and your praise and glory proclaimed, especially the honour of your mercy. O Christ, let me glorify your goodness and mercy to the last moment of my life, with every drop of my blood and every beat of my heart. Amen.


Corpus Christi Sunday.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells us that to have life we need more than physical nourishment. How have you been aware of deeper hungers? What has met that deeper longing in you? Jesus tells us that it is not just something he gives us which will give us life, but himself in his life, death, and resurrection. How has your faith in the person of Jesus fed you? Jesus speaks about ‘drawing life’ from him. In day to day living what are the practices which support your faith and help you to draw life from Jesus? The Eucharist is one of the ways in which we draw life from Jesus. Recall with gratitude how the Eucharist has been a source of nourishment and life for you. Perhaps you can also think of human examples of people drawing life from one another. From whom have you drawn life? Who has been able to draw life from you?


Prayer Before Exams
Loving God, be with me now as I prepare for my exams.
Thank you for the many talents & gifts you have given me,
and for the opportunity of education. Calm my nerves & anxiety,
Help me to remember all that I have studied, to express it clearly and to answer the questions to the very best of my ability. Holy Spirit, sit with me in my exam – and always.

Amen

A Student’s Prayer
Father, please clear my mind and give me the understanding and knowledge that comes from you. Bless me as I take this exam and bring the information that I have studied to mind when it is needed in this exam. Grant me favour as I begin this test. I ask this in Jesus’s name.
Amen
