Corpus Christi

 Français


Corpus Christi is a Catholic feast celebrated on the Thursday or in Canada as well as in some countries, the Sunday following Trinity Sunday (i.e 60 days following Easter). 

 

The official name of the celebration is the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.  During every Eucharist the Lord invites us to His table. He speaks to us; he feeds us and quenches our thirst. Bread, our daily food, becomes His body, bread of Life. Wine which rejoices the heart becomes blood shed for the multitude, sign of the new covenant with God and all humanity. We are all invited to this meal of love.
