AUGUST IS THE MONTH WE HONOR THE HOLY EUCHARIST AND THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT OF THE ALTAR

 

 

ST. MATTHEW’S GOSPEL, CHAPTER 26

The Holy Eucharist Instituted

(Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:14-23; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34)

26And whilst they were at supper, Jesus took bread and blessed and broke and gave to his disciples and said: Take ye and eat. This is my body. 27And taking the chalice, he gave thanks and gave to them, saying: Drink ye all of this. 28For this is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many unto remission of sins. 29And I say to you, I will not drink from henceforth of this fruit of the vine until that day when I shall drink it with you new in the kingdom of my Father.

30And a hymn being said, they went out unto mount Olivet.

GOSPEL OF ST. JOHN, CHAPTER 6

41The Jews therefore murmured at him, because he had said: I am the living bread which came down from heaven. 42And they said: Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How then saith he: I came down from heaven? 43Jesus therefore answered and said to them: Murmur not among yourselves. 44No man can come to me, except the Father, who hath sent me, draw him. And I will raise him up in the last day. 45It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard of the Father and hath learned cometh forth me. 46Not that any man hath seen the Father: but he who is of God, he hath seen the Father. 47Amen, amen, I say unto you: He that believeth in me hath everlasting life. 48I am the bread of life. 49Your fathers did eat manna in the desert: and are dead. 50This is the bread which cometh down from heaven: that if any man eat of it, he may not die. 51I am the living bread which came down from heaven. [52] If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, for the life of the world.

{53}The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: How can this man give us his flesh to eat? {54}Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say unto you: except you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. {55}He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day. {56}For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. {57}He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood abideth in me: and I in him. {58}As the living Father hath sent me and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, the same also shall live by me. {59}This is the bread that came down from heaven. Not as your fathers did eat manna and are dead. He that eateth this bread shall live for ever. {60}These things he said, teaching in the synagogue, in Capharnaum…

Peter’s Confession of Faith

(Matthew 16:13-20; Mark 8:27-30; Luke 9:18-20)

{67}After this, many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. {68}Then Jesus said to the twelve: Will you also go away? {69}And Simon Peter answered him: Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life. {70}And we have believed and have known that thou art the Christ, the Son of God.  (DOUAY-RHEIMS BIBLE)-

A FEW EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

P. 116 “I thought this group of monks was protected from getting uppity, or changing. Daily they got grungy. They got hot and sweaty. They were busy with their work…They started the day with a marathon Matins, Lauds, private Masses which took from about 5 AM to 7:30 AM, then there was a short break and they had Prime at 8 AM.”

 P. 85  “Discernment also includes a not-limiting of God’s means of Providence. So often we expect God’s Providence to come in the manner that we expect– the direct way. Open-mindedness is the key.”

P. 124   “When you bring up a big subject– a tornado is headed this way– you expect a little attention to be given to the subject. When it’s not given, it’s just weird!”

 P. 63 “What does one do when one is hemmed in all around and finds oneself engulfed in what seems to one’s heart and mind to be a sacrilege?”
