The following is from our Associate Pastor, Fr. Bill Crowe:

Jesus: The Bread of Life For All

Jesus is the Bread of life. The centerpiece of the mass is the Eucharist. Every Mass the bread and wine that we offer are consecrated by Jesus into the Body, Blood, soul and divinity of Jesus. We do not know how this happens. We know this through faith.
The Body and Blood of Jesus are offered to all who believe. The Eucharist is a gift of love offered to all. The barley loaves in the first reading and gospel passage reinforce that the Eucharist is for all as bread made with barley was the food of the poor. The Body and Blood of Jesus nourish us. The Body and Blood of Jesus heal us: it heals our being and it heals our relationships – our relationship with God and our relationships with each other. The Eucharist binds us so close to Jesus that we become one with him. When the water is mingled with the wine the priest or deacon prays this prayer:“By the mystery of this water and wine may we come to share the divinity of Christ who humbled himself to share in our humanity.” The Body and Blood of Jesus give us access to eternal life. Let us ask Jesus to use us so every person can discover that they are a member of the Body of Christ bound together in the life-giving Love that is God.

Prayer For Priestly Vocations
Prayed at the Ordination of
Fr. Eben McDonald and Fr. Nabor Rios
on June 3, 2012

Father, in every generation you provide ministers of Christ and the Church. We come before you now, asking that you call forth more men to serve our Archdiocese in the ministerial priesthood.
Give us priests who will lead and guide your holy people gathered by Word and Sacrament. Bless us with priestly vocations so that we can continue to be a truly Eucharistic Church, strengthened in our discipleship of Jesus Christ, your Only Son.
Raise up, we pray, men who are generous in their service, willing to offer their lives and all their gifts for your greater glory and for the good of your people.
We make our prayer in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, through Christ, Our Lord.
