Mission Matters

After the Ascension of Jesus the Church places before us a number of theological and devotional constructs to inform our lives of faith: the Feasts of the Trinity, Corpus Christi and the Sacred Heart. 

During this past week we have marked the last two of these special days:  The solemnity of Corpus Christi is specially associated with the Dominican Order, as Thomas Aquinas composed the proper texts for the liturgy as well as a number of hymns, the best known being Panis Angelicus.

 The solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus reminds us of the immense and unending love God continues to show for us in the person of Christ.
