Take Ye, and Eat


"For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread. And giving thanks, broke, and said: Take ye, and eat: this is my body, which shall be delivered for you: this do for the commemoration of me. In like manner also the chalice, after he had supped, saying: This chalice is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as you shall drink, for the commemoration of me." (I Cor. 11:23-25. Douay-Rheims version.)

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of Corpus Christi -- The Body of Christ. The actual feast day was this past Thursday, June 11. The solemnity is celebrated on Sunday, however, for the good of the faithful.
