Corpus Christi, also known as the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, is a Christian observance that honors the Holy Eucharist. This feast day celebrates the belief in the real presence of Jesus Christ's body and blood in the consecrated bread and wine during the Mass. It is an important occasion for Catholics, and many other Christian denominations, as it focuses on the significance of the Eucharist and its role as a sacrament in the faith.
The history of Corpus Christi dates back to the 13th century when it was first celebrated in Liege, Belgium, by St. Juliana. Pope Urban IV later extended the feast to the entire Roman Catholic Church in 1264. For the people in America, Corpus Christi is observed by Catholics and some high church Anglicans, with the focus on the unity in faith and reverence towards the Eucharist. In the United States, a key aspect of the observance is the adherence to the belief that the sacrament is the source and summit of the Christian life, reflecting the strength and compassion of the community.
In America, Corpus Christi is observed through various customs and rituals, including Mass, Eucharistic processions, and prayer services. These events are often adorned with flower petals, banners, and religious art to showcase the beauty and majesty of the Eucharist. Corpus Christi is observed on June 8th.
