The Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ



In today’s gospel, there is an interesting situation. The disciples ask Jesus to send the crowds away to find food and lodging. They have a tiny bit of food and thousands to feed. They are not understanding that it is their responsibility to provide for the people and that they have the necessary resource right in front of them. They have Jesus Himself. He is the Bread of Life. When we are with the Bread of Life, we lack for nothing. When we consume the Bread of Life, we have everything important for life.


Today is traditionally called Corpus Christi, or in English, The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. Today we celebrate the real and full presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. We remember the first Mass on Holy Thursday and the sacrificial love offering of Good Friday. Today we express our conviction that the Eucharist is the “source and summit of our faith.” So often, when people stray from the practice of their faith and so often, when others come to the Church from other denominations, it is the Eucharist, the Most Holy Body and Blood that is at the center of their movement home.


Today is the day to rejoice in knowing that at every Mass, we will eat and be satisfied.


Father Julio

We the Church of Our Lady of Fatima, declare it to be our mission to live in faithful relationship with the Father and through the power of the Holy Spirit, give witness and living testimony to the mission of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

We ask that Mary, the Mother of our Lord and our Mother, who aided the beginnings of the Church by her prayers, may now intercede with her Son for each of us...helping us to grow in faith, hope, and love.

We as Catholic Christians, are called to make visible Christs presence among His people. We commit ourselves to journey through life striving to become more like Jesus in our words and deeds, to be His disciples.

We exist not for ourselves, but for the sake of others, generating new life and hope. In His name and united in his belief, we reach out to others.

We become the heart of Jesus to love others, His ears to listen to others, His mouth to teach as He did, and His feet to spread His Good News as we journey through life.

As we proclaim our love by ministering to and serving others, we build community. And as one, our parish community worships and celebrates. through many, we are one body because we share in the One Bread and One Cup.

WELCOME!   Our Lady of Fatima parish always welcomes new members. Please stop by the rectory or call 973-764-4457 to register as soon as possible.
