Communion Prayer

Be content. Be content.

We are the Body of Christ.

We have found Him, He has found us.

We are in Him, He is in us.

There is nothing further to look for,

except for the deepening of this life

we already possess.

  Be content.

Welcome SS Cosmas & Damian, St. Gertrude, St. Mary! 

1 Kings 3:5, 7-12 Psalm 119 Romans 8:28-30 Matthew 13:44-52

We’ve all heard of the Holy Grail and how through the centuries people have sacrificed a lot to search for it.

There is a sense of longing, a yearning, a sense of incompleteness.
