FROM  FR. MATTHEW.


      Today is the Feast of Corpus Christi, when we celebrate the wonderful git that the Eucharist is to us. This afternoon, Sunday, at Belmont at 4.00pm there is the Corpus Christi procession, benediction and vespers. Also congratulations to the children who last Sunday made their 1st Holy Communion. The pilgrimage prayer continues this week, marking the 100th anniversary of the Archdiocese, so we pray for the parish of Our Lady of the Angels in Cwmbran, and St. David in Pontnewydd, the Rev’d Canon John Griffiths and Deacon Peter McLaren, and the convent of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Annecy, Llantarnum, with the Chaplain Revd Micheal Cronin. Please continue to keep in your prayers the young people preparing to be confirmed by Archbishop George on Saturday 18thJune at 6.00pm. This Sunday, the Solemnity of Corpus Christi all existing and new ministers, will be commissioned for their ministry, at all masses. From today at the Sunday evening mass, communion will be available under both kinds.


 


 GOSPEL REFLECTION – BLESSED AND GIVEN.


At the dawn of salvation history, God revealed our future in figures. That’s what’s going on in today’s First Reading: A king and high priest comes from Jerusalem (see Psalm 76:3), offering bread and wine to celebrate the victory of God’s beloved servant, Abram, over his foes. By his offering, Melchizedek bestows God’s blessings on Abram. He is showing us, too, how one day we will receive God’s blessings and in turn “bless God” - how we will give thanks to Him for delivering us from our enemies, sin and death. As Paul recalls in today’s Epistle, Jesus transformed the sign of bread and wine, making it a sign of His body and blood, through which God bestows upon us the blessings of His “new covenant.” Jesus is “the priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek,” that God, in today’s Psalm, swears will rule from Zion, the new Jerusalem (see Hebrews 6:20-7:3). By the miracle of loaves and fishes, Jesus in today’s Gospel, again prefigures the blessings of the Eucharist. Notice that He takes the bread, blesses it, breaks it, and gives it to the Twelve. You find the precise order and words in the Last Supper (see Luke 22:19) and in His celebration of the Eucharist on the first Easter night (see Luke 24:30). The Eucharist fulfills the offering of Melchizedek. It is the daily miracle of the heavenly high priesthood of Jesus. It is a priesthood He conferred upon the Apostles in ordering them to feed the crowd, in filling exactly twelve baskets with leftover bread - in commanding them on the night He was handed over: “Do this in remembrance of Me.” Through His priests He still feeds us in “the deserted place” of our earthly exile. 
And by this sign He pledges to us a glory yet to come. For as often as we share in His body and blood. we proclaim His victory over death, until He comes again to make His victory our own.
