06/20/19 - NNHS Newsletter - The Feast of Corpus Christi

“This food we call the Eucharist, of which no one is allowed to partake except one who believes that
the things we teach are true, and has received the washing for forgiveness of sins and for rebirth, and
who lives as Christ handed down to us. For we do not receive these things as common bread or common drink;
but as Jesus Christ our Savior being incarnate by God's Word took flesh and blood for our salvation,
so also we have been taught that the food consecrated by the Word of prayer which comes from him, from which
our flesh and blood are nourished by transformation, is the flesh and blood of that incarnate Jesus.”

- St. Justin, Martyr, 2nd Century

 (100 - 165 A.D.)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   The Feast of Corpus Christi is a movable Catholic observance. Additionally, it is celebrated in the United States on a different day from the rest of the world.

BONUS #1 - Mass for the Solemn Feast of Corpus Christi - Pope Francis from the Vatican - 2015.06.04

BONUS #2 - Feast of Corpus Christi - "On the Feast of Corpus Christi (the Body and Blood of Christ), we celebrate the real presence of Christ among us in the elements of the Eucharist. Father James Gardiner, reminds us that, like the consecrated Bread and Wine, we are challenged to be, ourselves, a real presence of Christ in the world."

BONUS #3 - Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ave_verum_corpus:

"Ave verum corpus" is a short Eucharistic hymn that has been set to music by various composers. It dates from the 14th century and has been attributed to Pope Innocent VI.[1]

During the Middle Ages it was sung at the elevation of the host during the consecration. It was also used frequently during Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

The poem is a meditation on the Catholic belief in Jesus's Real Presence in the sacrament of the Eucharist, and ties it to the Catholic conception of the redemptive meaning of suffering in the life of all believers.

Musical settings include Mozart's motet Ave verum corpus (K. 618),[6] as well as settings by William Byrd and Sir Edward Elgar. Not all composers set the whole text. For example, Mozart's setting finishes with "in mortis examine", Elgar's with "fili Mariae". There is a version by Franz Liszt [Searle 44], and also ones by Camille Saint-Saëns, Orlande de Lassus, Imant Raminsh,[7] Alexandre Guilmant, Colin Mawby,[8] Malcolm Archer[9] and Jack Gibbons.[10] Liszt also composed a fantasy on Mozart's work, preceded by a version of Allegri's celebrated Miserere, under the title À la Chapelle Sixtine [Searle 461 – two versions]. Versions of this fantasy for orchestra [Searle 360] and piano four-hands [Searle 633] follow closely the second version for piano. There is also a version for organ [Searle 658] with the title Evocation à la Chapelle Sixtine. The text is even used in an opera, Francis Poulenc's Dialogues of the Carmelites (there is also "Ave verum corpus", a separate work by Poulenc dated 1952). Mozart's version, with instruments only, was adapted by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky as one of the sections of his Mozartiana, a tribute to Mozart. The Vienna Boys' Choir (Wiener Sängerknaben) made some notable recordings of Mozart's "Ave verum corpus" in the 20th century. From the 21st century there is a setting by the Swedish composer Fredrik Sixten and two versions by Philip Lawson.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 06/18/15:
 

It is extremely important for you to believe in yourselves not only for what you are now but for what you have the power to become. Trust in the Lord as He leads you along. He has things for you to do that you won't know about now but that will unfold later. If you stay close to Him, You will have some great adventures. You will live in a time where instead of sometimes being fulfilled, many of them will actually be fulfilled. The Lord will unfold your future bit by bit.”

- Neal A. Maxwell
(
06 July 1926 - 21 July 2004)

 
Thanks so much, Susan!

  Thank you, Joan!
 
 


  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 06/20/19, @ 6:00 AM:

  Good morning on a Thursday! Well, we made it over the "Hump" and are now on the downhill slope. I notice a beautiful moon early this morning and hope that means we might see some sunshine today. It's rather soggy after lots of rain yesterday but the good news is that after our mini-drought the aquifer is full again. Here's wishing you all things bright and beautiful this morning as we anticipate another weekend which is once again right around the corner. Time flies because we are either having fun or getting older and I suspect it's a bit of both. So, be blessed this day, put a smile on your face and a prayer on your lips and everything will turn out a-okay. When we turn our lives over to Him it just makes things go that way. This morning I've chosen a photo that will make those of use who grew up in the Tidewater perhaps a little homesick. It's a good morning shot from the bustling Chesapeake Bay, that grand body of water that has so much history and provides such good seafood. What a grand place it was to grow up. Have a great day.

      Thank you, Jimmy!

Ave verum corpus, natum
de Maria Virgine,
[2]
vere passum, immolatum
in cruce pro homine
cuius latus perforatum
fluxit aqua et sanguine:
[3]
esto nobis praegustatum
in mortis examine.
[4]

O Iesu dulcis, O Iesu pie,
O Iesu, fili Mariae.
Miserere mei. Amen.
[5]
Hail, true Body, born
of the Virgin Mary,
who having truly suffered, was sacrificed
on the cross for mankind,
whose pierced side
flowed with water and blood:
May it be for us a foretaste [of the Heavenly banquet]
in the trial of death.

O sweet Jesus, O holy Jesus,
O Jesus, son of Mary,
have mercy on me. Amen.
