oday, we celebrate one of the most beautiful feasts of the Church, the Body and Blood of Christ, formerly known by its Latin name - Corpus Christi.    The Eucharist is the “beating heart” of the Catholic Church for everythingcccentres on this sacrament which Christ left us on the night before he died. It was his parting gift to the Church—his own Body and Blood to be the life and food of our souls. He assured continuation by ordaining his disciples, the first priests,and ordered them to do this in memory of him. — and I will be with you always until the end of time. Each parish is Eucharistic community gathered round Christ in the Mass.  is the continuation of his sacrifice in  which he offers himself to his Father our behalf through his priesthood It is difficult to understand the humility of Christ who has chosen the simplicity of this sacrament as the way in which he wishes to be close to us.My flesh is real food.My blood is real drink; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me and I live in him. Oh the joy, the rapture, the privilege of being able to receive Our Lord in the intimacy of our own souls.I will no longer call you servants, but friends. Breakup of unity This is the sacrament Our Lord wanted everyone of his followers to have. Sadly, the Reformation caused the break-up of the unity of the Church, of which this sacrament is an enduring symbol. In the terrible frenzy, cathedrals, abbeys and churches were sacked, altars destroyed, the sacrifice of the Mass forbidden and priests outlawed. Many of the magnificent architectural gems raised to the glory of God were left in ruins, and the people deprived of the nourishment of the Eucharist, the very basis of their faith. The ruins of these edifices are now precious to us and everything is done to preserve them. They are a reminder of the faith in the Eucharist that was once the very substance of the people of this land. It was a cultural vandalism that destroyed the spiritual treasures of our country
