One Bread, One Cup, One Lord of All

Dear Parishioners,

Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Bread of Life, tells and shows us through one bread and one cup, that we are included in the one body that is the Church (Deuteronomy 8:2-3, 14b-16a; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17; John 6:51-58). There are no strangers here, no outcasts, no one excluded, because the One who calls us to share in this meal sees us all as God’s children, God’s family. Imagine what could happen among us and through us as God’s people when we begin to live fully this great truth… one bread, one cup, one body. We might just change our corner of the world and live in the fullness of life that is eternal. Why not?

- Deacon Robert

“Human life must be respected and
protected absolutely from the moment of
conception. From the first moment of his
existence, a human being must be recognized
as having the rights of a person - among
which is the inviolable right of every innocent
being to life.”
~ Catechism of the Catholic Church 2270
