First Reading: Exodus 34:4-6.8-9
With the two tablets of stone in his hands, Moses went up the mountain of Sinai in the early morning as the Lord had commanded him. And the Lord descended in the form of a cloud, and Moses stood with him there.
He called on the name of the Lord. The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, Lord, Lord, a God of tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in kindness and faithfulness. And Moses bowed down to the ground at once and worshipped. If I have indeed won your favour, Lord, he said, let my Lord come with us, I beg. True, they are a headstrong people, but forgive us our faults and our sins, and adopt us as your heritage.
Either:How great is your name, O Lord our God,
through all the earth!
Second Reading: 2 Corinthians 13:11-13
Brothers, we wish you happiness; try to grow perfect; help one another. Be united; live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you.
Greet one another with the holy kiss. All the saints send you greetings.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Gospel: John 3:16-18
Jesus said to Nicodemus,
'God loved the world so much
that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost
but may have eternal life.
For God sent his Son into the world
not to condemn the world,
but so that through him the world might be saved.
No one who believes in him will be condemned;
but whoever refuses to believe is condemned already,
because he has refused to believe
in the name of God's only Son.'

You sent your Word to bring us truth
and your Spirit to make us holy.
Through them we come to know the mystery of your life.
Help us to worship you, one God in three persons,
You reveal yourself in the depths of our being,
by proclaiming and living our faith in you.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever. Amen
THE BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST (CORPUS CHRISTI) 18th JUNE

REFLECTION - Reflection in a well
Once a young boy stood watching a gypsy
as he drank from a well in the town square.
After drinking, the man continued to gaze into the well,
as though looking at someone.
He was a giant of a man but had a friendly face.
So the boy approached him and asked:
‘Who lives down there?’
‘God does,’ answered the gypsy.
‘Can I see him?’
‘Sure you can,’ said the gypsy.
Then taking the boy into his arms he lifted him up
so that he could see down into the well.
All the boy could see, however,
was his own reflection in the water.
‘But that’s only me,’ he cried in disappointment.
‘All I see is me.’
‘Ah,’ replied the gypsy,
‘now you know where God lives.
He lives in you.’
