May 29: Corpus Christi

Corpus ChristiToday, Sunday, May 29, 2016, is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus (Corpus Christi).

From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

1407 The Eucharist is the heart and the summit of the Church’s life, for in it Christ associates his Church and all her members with his sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving offered once for all on the cross to his Father; by this sacrifice he pours out the graces of salvation on his Body which is the Church.
