HOMEBOUND PARISHIONERS

                St. John’s Parish is blessed with many extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist, many of whom bring Holy Communion to those who are unable to come to church on Sunday.  This is a wonderful ministry and truly connects our homebound parishioners with the rest of the worshipping community through the Eucharist.  We are always interested in identifying people who are homebound and who would like a visit from a Eucharistic Minister.  If you have family members who are homebound or know of parishioners who are homebound and desirous of receiving the Eucharist on a regular basis, please contact the rectory at 617 846-7400.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

                We are updating our communion list for the homebound.  If you are presently bringing communion to anyone in the parish, please give Sister Jane their name, address and phone number.  Call 617 846-7400 or email:  j_iannaccone320@hotmail.com  Please note, if Sister Jane assigned a person to you, you do not need to respond.

MOST HOLY BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST

First Reading:  Exodus 24:3-8

                Today’s passage from the book of Exodus describes the covenant between God and the Israelite people.  A covenant is a solemn agreement made between two parties and was usually sealed in blood.  In ancient times, blood was considered the source of life.  To sprinkle two people with the same blood bonded them as closely as if they were blood relatives.

Second Reading:  Hebrews 9:11-15

                On Yom Kippur, the high priest sacrificed a goat on the altar in the temple.  Then he took some of the blood into the holiest place in the temple sanctuary where only he was allowed to go.  There, he sprinkled that blood as a renewal of the covenant made at Mount Sinai, and prayed that God would forgive the sins they had committed during the previous year.  This ritual is the backdrop for today’s reading from the letter to the Hebrews.

Gospel:  Mark 14:12-16, 22-26 (Passover Preparation)

Question of the Week:

Adult:  In what ways have you practiced the words of Jesus and been bread for others?

Child:  What can you do to prepare to celebrate Holy Communion with your parish family?

PRAY FOR WORLD PEACE – PRAY THE ROSARY

 

Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, and they all drank from it. He said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many. Amen, I say to you, I shall not drink again the fruit of the vine until the day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.” – Mk 14:23-25
