My Lord and my God,

United with the Immaculate Heart of Our Holy Mother, Mary,

I, (name), hereby dedicate and solemnly consecrate

All that I am and all that I have,

Without hesitation or reservation,

To Your Most Sacred Heart,

Truly present –

Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity –

In the most august sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

Dearest Jesus,

The single greatest desire and all-consuming longing

Of my poor, wretched and sinful heart and soul,

Is to perpetually

Serve, Adore, Glorify, and offer unceasing Gratitude

To Your Most Sacred Heart,

Truly and substantially present, in an abiding fashion,

In the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.

For, it is from this Divine Heart that all Grace and Mercy

Flows out, into the hearts and souls of men,

Through the all-powerful and never-failing intercession

of Mother Mary, true Mediatrix of all Grace and Mercy


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.

The Feast of the Body and Blood of Our Lord: Eucharistic Christ is the Passover Lamb of Sacrifice

Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament

by Jayson M. Brunelle

In previous posts, I’ve explored the centrality of the Eucharist as the sacrament toward which every other sacrament tends.  I’ve talked about the Eucharist as both source and summit of all of the Church’s activity.  I’ve underscored Christ’s words regarding His real presence in the Eucharist explained so eloquently in the Gospel of John.  But I’ve yet to speak on the Eucharist as the Sacrament of self-giving love, manifested in the words of John the Baptist: “Look – there is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (Jn 1:29).  At the moment of consecration, the priest says, “Take this, all of you, and eat it.  This is my body, which shall be given up for you.”  And when consecrating the wine, he states, “Take this, all of you, and drink from it.  This is the cup of my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant.  It will be shed for you and for all, so that sins may be forgiven.  Do this in memory of me.” (more…)
