Today we celebrate the feast of "Corpus Christi"

14th Jun 2020

Today, on Sunday 14th June, we celebrate the feast of "Corpus Christi". This is a Latin phrase that means the Body of Christ. The feast celebrates the turning of bread and wine into the actual body and blood of Christ during mass. The big word for this is "Transubstantiation" which means changing or converting them. This conversion or Transubstantiation first happened at the Last Supper on Holy Thursday when Jesus turned the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. We remember this at every mass when the priest turns the bread and wine into the body and blood of our Lord. We kneel at this part of the mass and bow our heads to show reverence. The bells are rung to let us know how important this is. Why not pause now for a moment and say a short prayer? Amen
