The 210th anniversary of Saint Peter Julian Eymard's baptism
Dearest parish family, I am sending a few photos from morning Mass today, 2/5. Today is a special day of remembrance for the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament and Associates of the Blessed Sacrament. It is the 210th anniversary of Saint Peter Julian Eymard's baptism, also the feast of Saint Agatha.
Saint Peter Julian is the Spiritual father to the Congregation and Associates. St. Peter Julian held the day of his baptism in very high regard. Father Bill offered a beautiful homily this morning reflecting on his holy founder. St. Peter Julian knew of the gift of Eucharist, he would take Jesus whom he received and bring this manifestation of God's love through the abiding presence with him wherever the went. The glory of God would be found in its fullness when shared in this divine way.
Have a blessed first Friday, Laura
