Music and Word for the weekend: Corpus Christi

My Widget by austin fleming on Grooveshark

This widget above includes 20 songs (chant, choral, instrumental, classical, country, spirituals, contemporary) for prayer in preparation for celebrating Corpus Christi (the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ) this coming weekend.  Something for everyone here: Byrd, Elgar, Bernstein, Mozart, Chant, Wainwright and more.

Listen to the music as you read and ponder the scriptures for this Sunday.  You'll find the texts and commentary on them here.  And if you're bringing children to church with you, check the hints for helping them prepare to hear the Word, too.

The first two scriptures for Corpus Christi are brief: a passage from Genesis reminding us of when Melchizedek offered gifts of bread and wine and the 1 Corinthians account of the Last Supper, the oldest such account in the New Testament. In the gospel (Luke) we have the story of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes.

There's no better way to prepare for Sunday worship than to read and study the scriptures we'll hear proclaimed at Mass.

The widget above is also on the sidebar for your prayer and reflection between now and the celebration of Corpus Christi.
