St. Peter’s Catholic Church. Biggleswade. Last Sunday celebrated the feast of Corpus Christi. The festival of Corpus Christi celebrates the Eucharist as the body of Christ. The name 'Corpus Christi' is Latin for 'the body of Christ'. This jubilant festival is celebrated to proclaim the truth of the transubstantiation of bread and wine into the actual body and blood of Christ during Mass. 1.The human person cannot live without the experience of divine love and human love. The human person cannot live without the experience of divine intimacy and human intimacy. The human person cannot live without communion. Man becomes fully realized in communion because he is created for communion by a God who is the most perfect communion (1.From the Vatican website).
Sixteen children took their First Holy Communion on Saturday 9th June. The church was packed with their families, friends and parishioners to celebrate with the children in receiving the Holy Sacrament. Please pray for them and the Catechists who gave their time freely for several months to ensure the children were fully prepared for this wonderful day and for those who worked extremely hard to ensure that everyone enjoyed refreshments thereafter.
