The Solemnity of Corpus Christi

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that those who believe in him may not perish, but may have life everlasting.”
John 3:14

Corpus Christi falls 60 days after Easter, following Trinity Sunday. The words “Corpus Christi” translate from Latin to "Body of Christ”. It celebrates the mystery of transformation – to commemorate the gift of the presence of the body and blood of the risen Christ in the Eucharist. When we participate in mass and eat and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, we too are transformed into a more perfect self as we receive the presence of the risen Christ. However, let us not forget that this too reminds of the sacrifices we should make into giving ourselves to others so that they too may become closer to God. And so, in some ways every Sunday is a feast of the Eucharist, because in receiving Communion, we are celebrating the Eucharist.

Let us rejoice in the risen Lord and the wonderful gift of the Eucharist in which we are invited to be fed and nourished!

Did you know that the story behind the Feast of Corpus Christi involves a mystic nun & a bleeding host?
