Come and take Christ’s body offered, come and be what you received. (Refrain) This is what we have been told, that on the night before he died, after thanksgiving spoken, bread blessed and broken, Christ sealed his love with his body and blood. /R This is what we understand: that when we eat and drink this feast, in this bread which we are breaking, Christ we are par-taking, Christ’s death proclaiming until his return. /R This is how we are to live, that being joined by Christ’s gifts, we should be Christ to others, sisters and brothers, holding them precious as saved by his blood. /R Christ, our way, our truth, our life, we are not worthy to draw near, but take our praise and thanksgiving, transform our living, give us that food which is healing and strength. /R (Stephen Dean) ******************************************************************************************** [Prayer for the Feast of the Sacred Heart on Friday next 8th June Lord Jesus, your Sacred Heart is always open in love to each of us, especially when we are suffering. To all who come to you seeking your help, you show your compassion and healing power. You care for us when we are lost, sympathise with us in loneliness and comfort us in mourning. You are closest to us when we are weakest. You reach out your hand to us when we stumble and have most need of your help. I ask you to listen to my prayers this day and grant what I ask. If what I ask is not for my own good or others’ good, grant me always what is best, that I may build your kingdom of love in our world. Amen ******************************************************************************************* Ratoath Credit Union would like to invite you to our Family Open day on Saturday 9th June from 12.00 -2.00pm in Ratoath Credit Union Office, Wells Road, Ratoath.
