Fr. Richard Conlin and The Feast of Corpus Christi

May 23, 2024

“But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you may not appear to others to be fasting, except to your Father who is hidden. And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.”

– Matthew 6:17-18

Did you know there is a novena and consecration to Jesus in the Eucharist? This book “9 Days to Corpus Christi” is the first-ever consecration program to Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. It was created for us by Father Richard Conlin in preparation for and following the Solemnity of Corpus Christi.

This feast day is around the corner, so Fr. Conlin joined me on the podcast this week all the way from Rome, Italy to share insights from his devotion to the Eucharistic Jesus and much more. We discuss his awesome book and how our lives are a continual seeking of Jesus in the Sacraments

His book is filled with stories that will touch your heart and help you fast. I found it so compelling, that I plan to read it again and again as I consecrate myself every year at this very time in the Church Calendar. 

I think you will be amused as we talk about my favorite story in the book involving the Road Runner cartoon and a playful game of hide and seek with his nieces. He says this is how Jesus works. 

We talk about eating, fasting, and feasting and the actual playfulness of it all, with the High Feast being the Blessed Sacrament on Sundays. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
