+FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI+
Many centuries ago the Church began observing one day—besides, of course, Holy Thursday,—to honor the Eucharist in a special way. This feast known in Latin as “Corpus Christi” (Body of Christ) is celebrated today, Sunday, May 29th this year. Let us offer thanks to God for this great gift of Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist.

FEAST OF SACRED HEART OF JESUS—In this Feast we meditate on the mystery of Christ’s boundless love to us symbolized by the natural sign for love, the heart. It is the mystery of the Holy Eucharist, the center of our faith, the center of our worship of Christ’s merciful love manifested in His Sacred Heart. On this Feast, a World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests is observed in the Church. Our late Pope reminds priests of their “duty to strive for holiness and the ministers of holiness for the men and women entrusted to them.” Please pray for your priests of this parish and for all priests that they may remain faithful in their service to God’s people and always grow in holiness and dedication. If unable to attend Mass that day, then please remember to pray for priests in your personal and family prayers and for more priestly and religious vocations. Morning Mass is at 7:30 am on Friday, June 3rd, Feast of the Sacred Heart.

+TWELVE PROMISES OF THE SACRED HEART+
I will give you all of the graces necessary for your state of life.
I will establish peace in your homes.
I will comfort you in all your afflictions.
I will be your secure refuge during life and in death.
I will give special blessings to all your undertakings.
Sinners will find My heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
Tepid souls will grow fervent.
Fervent souls will quickly mount to perfection.
I will bless every place where a picture of My heart will be exposed and honored.
I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
Those who will promote this devotion shall have their names written in my heart—never to be blotted out.
“I promise in the excessive mercy of My heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in my displeasure nor without receiving the Sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in the last moment.”

A SINCERE THANK YOU—to the family of the Late Virginia Cotoia, one of our faithful parishioners, for the donations made to Saint Bartholomew Church Memorial Fund on the sad occasion of her recent death. We remember her in our prayers at Mass. May Virginia now rest in the peace of the Risen Lord.
