Messenger June 2022
June's edition of the Messenger is jam-packed with all things eucharistic in honour of Corpus Christi or ‘The Thanksgiving for the Holy Communion’.
This month’s edition of the Messenger is jam-packed with all things eucharistic in honour of Corpus Christi or ‘The Thanksgiving for the Holy Communion’ which the Church celebrates on 16 June.
Dorothy Lee writes on the Bread of Life narrative from John’s Gospel; John Shepherd writes on the Eucharist in the Early Church; and N T Wright explores the different aspects of eucharistic theology.
There’s also an informative Q&A on the Eucharist by the Archbishop’s Chaplain and instructions on how to make homemade altar bread from Andrew McGowan, plus an article on Pentecost by the Dean. Bishop Jeremy and Dr Elizabeth Smith offer their reflections on the recent meeting of General Synod.
Of course, there are all our usual contributors to keep readers up to date with news from across Perth - parishes, schools and agencies.
A Prayer from the BCP service of Holy Communion:
Almighty God, unto whom all hearts be open, all desires known,
and from whom no secrets are hid:
Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of thy Holy Spirit,
that we may perfect love thee, and worthily magnify thy Holy name;
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
