Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ Weekend of June 2/3
 
Today’s Gospel gives St. Mark’s account of Jesus gathering his disciples for a last supper, revealing to them a new covenant established through his own sacrificial blood. Every time we participate in the Eucharist, we make a pledge to renew and deepen our participation in Christ’s covenant in practical ways. For the steward, that means making daily, personal sacrifices to strengthen this covenant relationship such as deepening our relationship with the Lord in prayer, supporting our parish, and giving comfort to the poor. Now is a good time to reflect on what we can do to strengthen our covenant with the Lord and our community in practical ways.

 
 Loving God,
We remember all whose lives have been lost through violence,
especially at this time those in our own land,
and we commend them to your everlasting peace.
Protect those who work for reconciliation and peace,
and forgive us when we provoke bitterness, division and hostility.
Teach us to cherish and value all life;
help us to appreciate diversity and the gifts of others;
inspire us to be united in building your Kingdom.
Lord bless us and keep us.
Amen.
