Scripture notes – The Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), C – 23rd June 2019

This feast which some may remember as ‘Corpus Christi’ has been renamed since the congregation now is offered the Wine as well as the Bread of the Eucharist. The readings bring in different aspects of the ‘real presence’ of Jesus and what it means for our lives. Continue reading Scripture notes – The Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), C – 23rd June 2019

Scripture notes – Holy Trinity, C – 16th June 2019

This feast ends the journey we have been taking through the celebrations of God’s redemptive mercy from the Passion through Pentecost. Today’s focus is on the source of all that love which is poured out for us. The Bible does not define the Trinity – not even the familiar phrase ‘three persons in one God’ appears. Instead it describes in various ways how the first Christians experienced the love of Father, Son and Spirit interacting in their own lives.

Scripture notes – Pentecost, C – 9th June 2019

Only Luke’s Gospel describes the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the first disciples in a dramatic form. John has a shorter story of Jesus giving them the Spirit by ‘breathing’ on his disciples after the resurrection. This action connects the Hebrew and Greek words for ‘spirit’ which come from words for ‘breath’ or ‘wind.’ Luke mentions wind, too. Continue reading Scripture notes – Pentecost, C – 9th June 2019
