Celebrating Corpus Christi in Western Mass

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with great joy that I post the following advertisement for the 10th Annual Eucharistic/Rosary Procession, which shall take place on Sunday, June 10th, at 2:00pm at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, located at 99 King Street, Northampton, Massachusetts.  Fr. Sean O’Mannion, Parochial Vicar of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish, will officiate and process with the Most Holy Eucharist throughout the streets of downtown Northampton, while Joe Ott, host of the Catholic Rosary radio-show, “Cause of Our Joy,” which airs each Sunday morning from 7:00 am to 8:00 am on 730 AM, WACE, will serve as the Master of Ceremonies.  A light luncheon shall conclude this marvelous public observance of the Solemnity of the Most Precious Body and Blood of Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist.  ALL ARE WELCOME!!!  Let us gather together in the presence of Our Lord, publicly bearing witness to our glorious faith in the real presence of Christ, the Eternal Word of God, truly and substantially present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.  Never before, in the 2,000-year history of the Church, has there been such a profound need for public adoration and worship of Our Lord’s Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament.  Don’t miss this tremendous opportunity to bear witness to the centerpiece of our glorious Catholic faith – public adoration of the Most Sacred Heart of Christ Jesus, alive and beating with divine love for all humanity in general and each individual in particular – which truly is the “source and summit” of our lives as Christians.  Moreover, it will be through, with and in the Most Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, that we shall render unto Our Lord the most fitting adoration as we collectively recite the Most Holy Rosary of Our Lady throughout the procession, meditating on the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous Mysteries of the lives of Jesus and Mary.

We must never take the free expression of our dearly beloved Catholic faith for granted, for there are diabolic forces that would very much like to suppress such public displays of worship.  Thus, let us never miss out on an opportunity to do something that, from a legal standpoint, is still permissible.

Finally, on Sunday, June 10th, from 7:00 am-8:00 am on WACE, 730 AM, Joe Ott will be interviewing Jacqueline M. Plank, a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor who will shortly be completing a Master’s degree in the same field from Springfield College.  She will be sharing the story of her conversion to the Catholic faith, and how it was precisely the real presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist which led to her decision to become a Catholic.

Moreover, author Jayson M. Brunelle, M.Ed., CAGS shall speak about the “Apostles of Light of the Immaculate Heart,” a new, universal spirituality for all persons, especially the laity, based on devotion to the Holy Family of Nazareth, the “Terrestrial Trinity.”

  1. Once again the Eucharistic/rosary Procession will take place in Northampton, Ma. on June 8, 2014. It will start at 2:00p.m. Rain or Shine. Following the procession there will be Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. This year we have veneration of a relic of St. John Paul 2, and possibly St. John the 23rd. A reception follows in nearby St. John Cantius, center. God -Bless, see you there, Joe Ott.
