Catholic Life Of Our School

The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

‘They all ate as much as they wanted.’

The miracle of the five loaves and two fish is one of the better known miracles of Jesus.  Most of us learnt it in Primary School.  Scholars have often thought about the signficance of this miracle and its place in the canon of scripture.  One explanation I remember was that in reality, those present had enough food to feed all present, and that the real miracle came in the sharing that took place.

We live in a world of plenty, yet so many go to bed hungry, even in our our country.  How wonderful it would be if we too began to share equally what we have.  May we bring sustinance to the ‘lonely’ places of our world.

Pope Francis’ Intention for June.

The Nativity of St John the Baptist

One of the most beautiful prayers in the Office of Hours is The Benedictus.  It is attributed to Zechariah on the birth of his son.  I publish the words of the prayer for you today and invite you to pray it during this week. 

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;
he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty saviour,
born of the house of his servant David.
Through his holy prophets he promised of old
that he would save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He promised to show mercy to our fathers
and to remember his holy covenant.
This was the oath he swore to our father
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,
free to worship him without fear,
holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.
You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High;
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,
to give his people knowledge of salvation 
by the forgiveness of their sins.
In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

St John the Baptist, pray for us.
