Corpus Christi remembrance…..
On this memorial of Corpus Christi, the body of Christ; we should be conscious of His sacrifice on that cross for our salvation. That supreme sacrifice is echoed by the many members of the armed forces who also fought for their nation, and paid the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of others. Today this feast of Corpus Christi occurs near the anniversary date of D-Day (6 June 1944), an important date in WW-2, it is fitting that those solders, and all who fought on the behalf of others on those battlefields, be kept in our prayers and intentions on this day, this day which we honor the Body and Blood of Christ .
O God, by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest, look kindly on your departed veterans who gave their lives in the service of their country. Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom and rejoice in you with your saints forever. We ask this through our Lord.
