The Feast Of Corpus Christi 2013
St. Bonaventure warned that removal of the Blessed Sacrament from the Church would leave the people like a herd of animals. St. Paul in the Epistle gives a monitum about irreverence to the Holy Eucharist in his day. What about our times? This feast has a special history because of its origin around a miracle. St. Thomas Aquinas composed the texts for this Mass and today’s Divine Office. The teaching about this sacred gift from God is clear and separates our true Church from all other false religions. Christ died to give us Himself in this way and it is sacrilegious, ungrateful and irreverent to treat the Sacrament of His Body and Blood in anything less than a loving and devout manner.
