Did you assist in Mass yesterday?

Yesterday, Mass was celebrated for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

What did the priest say about during his homily/sermon?

Share them and I will make another post about it.

  1. It was about the role and office of a priest. The celebrant-priest spoke about the special relationship of priests with the laity and God especially as they are the ones who can validly consecrate the Eucharist (with a reference to why women cannot be priests since the Church does not have the power to make them so). Much time was spent on reminding the congregation about the human frailties of priests and even though they can offer Mass, this act does not mean they do not need to seek reconciliation in the sacrament. The homilist concluded that the Body and Blood of Christ in the Mass is the center of Catholic faith and even with their weaknesses priests are the people by which Christ becomes truly one of us. Thus we should pray for our priests and even for more vocations to the priesthood.
