"In His Presence"

Away today on a personally  much-needed retreat day with members of the diocesan Credo Cymru group. In an excellent day, beginning this morning with mass and ending in the afternoon with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, we were fortunate to be renewed and fortified by some illuminating and thoughtful meditations  from the very able Fr David Matthews on the 'Corpus Christi-tide' theme of the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Eucharist, guided, appropriately enough today,  by the writings of St Justin Martyr.  

Healey Willan's O Sacred Feast (an English setting of St Thomas' O Sacrum Convivium)  

O sacred Feast
in which Christ is received,
the memory of his Passion is renewed,
the mind is filled with grace,
and a pledge of future glory is given to us
