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! 

Jeremiah 20:7-9 Psalm 63 Romans 12:1-2 Matthew 16:21-27

Jesus has been with his twelve Apostles for over a year since he first called the first ones as he was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee.

You remember the scene. Jesus sees two men fishing: Peter and his brother Andrew.
