Word for the Weekend: May 29

Image by Claire Joy

The Easter season ended on Pentecost Sunday. We reentered Ordinary Time but every year the first and second Sundays following Pentecost are special days: the feast of the Holy Trinity (this year on May 22) and the feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, Corpus et Sanguinis Christi (this year on May 29).

For this weekend's scriptures and background material on them, check here and for helping children prepare to hear the Word this weekend, check here.  

The first lesson this weekend (from Genesis) gives us Melchizedek, a priestly figure from the Hebrew scriptures who offered bread and wine to God. The second lesson (from 1 Corinthians) sets forth Paul's account of the Last Supper as he "received it (from) the Lord." Finally the gospel is Luke's account of the feeding of the five thousand from five loaves and two fish.
