This Sunday we celebrate Corpus Christi, which means the ‘Body of Christ’. In every mass God gives us the gift of his Son in the bread of the altar, the most precious thing in the whole world! At the end of mass, a consecrated Host will be placed in the monstrance for us to adore and then it will be used to make the sign of the cross over us in the beautiful rite of Benediction when we are blessed with the Body of Christ – Corpus Christi Click here for the Scripture Readings.
