NEW BEDFORD — Over 1,600 years ago, a North African mystic explained to Christians that with the Eucharist, God had given them everything.
"Although God is all-powerful, He is unable to give more; though supremely wise, He knows not how to give more; though vastly rich, He has not more to give," St. Augustine taught.
When the Franciscans of the Immaculate lead the Corpus Christi (Body of Christ) Procession through downtown New Bedford at 2 p.m. Sunday, they will be visibly expressing this belief that "God is with us."
After several weeks of intensive internet work, we finally finished the newly revised MaryMediatrix.com, the official site of the Franciscans of the Immaculate in the United States. Some of our regular visitors to the site may not be aware that MaryMediatrix.com was the first internet site of our Institute in the world which was launched in 1996. It was known then, as the Homepage of the Immaculate.
