On the Feast of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
Thursday following the Feast of the Sacred Heart,
nine young men advanced
in the ranks of the Knights of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
One of them advanced to the highest rank of Knight
and received the gold medal and sword of the society.
We had the privilege of the ceremony being presided by
His Lordship Emeritus Bishop Basil Meeking, of Christchurch.
We have the joy of sharing on video the Holy Mass with some touching scenes of the joy and celebration which followed. The contrast has often been made of how dignified and solemn the ceremonies and the children can be in the Chapel, but this does not prevent them being delightful happy young souls full of joy and friendship afterwards.
