Solemnity of Corpus Christi

06-23-2019Fr. John C. Granato

My Dear Friends,

Today is the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, or the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Traditionally it is usually on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday, but here in the United States, the bishops decided to move it to Sunday. It is a wonderful feast day where we honor and worship our Lord, truly present in the Most Holy Eucharist. Sadly, many Catholics do not believe that the Holy Eucharist is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ. There are many reasons for the lack of belief in this most awe inspiring mystery of our faith. Studies have shown that the increase in receiving the Holy Eucharist in the hand and standing rather than placed on the tongue and kneeling, as well as the increase in many Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, have lessened the faith in many peoples' eyes, especially the young people.
