On Sunday, June 14, on the feast of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, many of our parishioners took part in “follow the leader”—Christ the Eucharistic Lord—by processing in vehicles to the four corners of our parish boundaries, asking Him to bless and protect our lives and our lands, our parish and our peoples, our boundaries and our businesses, our prayer and our work, all for His glory and for our help.
Four stops were made, with Fr. Tom offering brief prayers and then blessing in the direction of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church. Stops were made at Lake Sherwood, Daniel Boone Home, Howell Cemetery, St. Gianna church, then back to IHM. During the approximately 20 minute drive between each station, many prayed the Rosary (accompanied by a Rosary CD), or read prayers/meditations, using that time to praise, intercede and call down whatever grace for which God would respond.
The Lord gave us a lovely day, and many would agree that it was a beautiful time to praise and honor Our Lord, reflect on all the blessings He lavishly gives, and ask for His continued blessings on our parishioners, neighbors and friends who live within our parish boundaries. Thanks be to God!
