GOSPEL READING:  Mk 14: 12-16, 22-26

On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread,
when they sacrificed the Passover lamb,
Jesus’ disciples said to him,
"Where do you want us to go
and prepare for you to eat the Passover?"
He sent two of his disciples and said to them,
"Go into the city and a man will meet you,
carrying a jar of water.
Follow him.
Wherever he enters, say to the master of the house,
'The Teacher says, "Where is my guest room
where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?"'
Then he will show you a large upper room furnished and ready.
Make the preparations for us there."
The disciples then went off, entered the city,
and found it just as he had told them;
and they prepared the Passover.
While they were eating,
he took bread, said the blessing,
broke it, gave it to them, and said,
"Take it; this is my body."
Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them,
and they all drank from it.
He said to them,
"This is my blood of the covenant,
which will be shed for many.
Amen, I say to you,
I shall not drink again the fruit of the vine
until the day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God."
Then, after singing a hymn,
they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Gospel Meditation

As our world faces so much turmoil and change, it is now more important than ever to remember who God is, who we are and where we are going. It is easy to get distracted and lose focus, especially when we are being pulled in so many directions. We can not only lose sight of God but one another. Maintaining our well developed and mature relationships with God and one another is essential to continuing to live, healthy, happy, and focused lives. In a message to young people, Pope Benedict XVI said, “the happiness you are seeking, the happiness you have a right to enjoy has a name and a face: it is Jesus of Nazareth, hidden in the Eucharist.” What is true for those who are younger is even truer for those who are older. Regardless of how the particulars of life change over time, human beings are still hard-wired to seek the fullness of life and happiness. How we embark on this journey and what we choose along the way will indicate whether we meet success.
There is so much brokenness and pain in our world. Many people are lost, feeling lonely, anxious, marginalized, victimized, isolated, oppressed, and abused. Every time we receive the Body of Christ, we have an opportunity to become what we eat. The power and presence of Christ in the Eucharist becomes present in us and effects change in ourselves and in the lives of those we meet. We are given the grace to become temples of justice and peace, carrying God’s sacred Presence within us wherever we go. Our faith community is ignited with the fire of God’s love and stands out as a beacon of hope in a world that is lost. This is the only way we can discover peace-filled resolutions to violence and create innovative solutions to what is fueling its need in the first place. True happiness, for the young and old alike, becomes an obtainable goal.
St. John Maria Vianney says it so well. “There is nothing so great as the Eucharist. If God had something more precious, he would have given it to us.” Only the Eucharist has the ability to connect, sustain, strengthen, and properly orient us, not only on the road of this life but the road to life eternal. Knowing this, when life gets challenging, unsettling, and difficult, we can rely on and cling to this gift we have in the Real Presence of Christ. This actual encounter with God celebrates God’s unconditional love for us and grounds us to the truth of who we are in a way nothing else is able to do. Because through the Eucharist we really do become the Body of Christ, we are also bonded together in a most perfect way to one another as that Body. Nourished, united, and strengthened by the Eucharist, let us individually and collectively, bring this wonderful gift to all we meet, especially the poor with whom we have a special connection.

For Our Young Parishioners

Sharing the Gospel

Jesus broke the bread and said, "This is my body." Then he held up the cup of wine and said, "This is my blood." During Mass the priest says the same words: "This is my body. This is my blood." Through the prayer, the bread and wine are changed into the body and blood of Christ. When you eat the body and blood of Christ, it gives you the power to say "No," to evil.

Young men who love Jesus: Come discover where God is calling you!

Remembering the Priests of our Diocese: June

On the anniversary of their passing, we remember and pray for the repose of the souls of the following priests of our diocese who have gone before us. May perpetual light shine upon them and may they rest in peace.
Father Albert J. Fornace
Father Fornace was born April 14, 1920 in Philadelphia, PA. He went to medical school and began practicing medicine, specializing in cardiology. He married and had 8 children. Twice widowed, Dr. Fornace had been a practicing physician for more than 50 years in Philadelphia and Norristown, Pa., when he retired in 1993. At that time, he decided to begin his journey toward priesthood. He attended the Mater Die Institute at Gonzaga University in Spokane, receiving minor orders for the Diocese of Fargo, ND.  During a visit to Orlando, he met Father Patrick Caverly who suggested that he move to the Orlando area to serve. He continued studying under the tutelage of Father Richard Trout and was ordained March 28, 1993 at All Souls in Sanford by Bishop Norbert Dorsey.  Father Fornace served at
All Souls in Sanford until his death on June 1, 2001.

He was instrumental in building John Carroll High School in 1965. Due to the evolving development of Florida dioceses, and though he served in one parish for his entire priesthood in Florida, Msgr.
