Corpus Christi 2017
The feast of Corpus Christi celebrates the sacramental aspect of the Holy Eucharist while Holy Thursday concentrates on the sacrificial. The Church and priests exist for this central teaching of the faith which is known as transubstantiation. St. Bonaventure warned centuries ago that without this civilization would return to its base origins and people would degenerate to behavior like beasts. However, receiving Our Lord in this sacrament gives us the foretaste of heaven which is so necessary to go there eventually.
