The Jubilee Year will be celebrated the First Sunday of Advent, December 3, 2017 through the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, November 25, 2018.
The theme for the year is “Stay with us, Lord” based on Luke 24:13-35 describing the Road to Emmaus when disciples urged our Lord, “’Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.’ So he went in to stay with them. And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight.”
Pray with us
Intercessions for December 3, 2017 – Jubilee Year of the Eucharist
For the Church of Orlando, nourished by the living word and the Body and Blood of Christ, may we never cease to invite the Lord to “stay with us” in our hearts and in our actions.
That by observing the Year of the Eucharist in the Diocese of Orlando we will proclaim Christ’s presence in the Eucharist for the life of the world.
Give us grace to see Christ in our midst through the sacrament of His Body and Blood that we may be transformed into the very Body of Christ broken and shared for the life of the world.
