One week ago today we marked the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Order of the Visitation of Holy Mary and as we celebrated the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, we marked the occasion with a procession down 35th Street and a blessing of the Monastery, Chapel and School buildings. Come, walk with us for a few minutes.
"The Savior instituted the most holy Sacrament of the Eucharist, really containing His Body and His Blood, in order that they who eat it might live for ever. And therefore whosoever receives it frequently and devoutly, so strengthens the health and life of his soul, that it is hardly possible for him to be poisoned by any evil desires. We cannot be fed by that Living Flesh and hold to the affections of death; and just as our first parents could not die in Paradise, because of the Tree of Life which God had placed therein, so this Sacrament of Life makes spiritual death impossible."
St. Francis de Sales
