Calendar Details for 03 Jun 2018

Corpus Christi

On Sunday, June 3, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, commonly called Corpus Christi. At the end of the 11:00am Mass on June 3, there will be a procession during which the Blessed Sacrament will be carried through the Cathedral, followed by the congregation, and concluding in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. All are encouraged to participate and celebrate this most precious gift of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

Corpus Christi (Body and Blood of Christ) is a Eucharistic solemnity, or better, the solemn commemoration of the institution of that sacrament. It is, moreover, the Church's official act of homage and gratitude to Christ, who by instituting the Holy Eucharist gave to the Church her greatest treasure. Holy Thursday, assuredly, marks the anniversary of the institution, but the commemoration of the Lord's passion that very night suppresses the rejoicing proper to the occasion. Today's observance, therefore, accents the joyous aspect of Holy Thursday.
