Special Character, Term 2 Week 7

Special Character, Term 2 Week 7

from: outsidedabox.com
This weekend we celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi - the Body of Christ.  The body and blood of Christ present in the Holy Eucharist is the central sacrament of the church, which was instituted at the Last Supper on Holy Thursday.  Jesus says, "He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day." John 6:54.  The Eucharist is one of the mysteries and central beliefs of the Catholic faith.  

St Paul also tells the Corinthians that now the Church is the Body of Christ:

"Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it." 1 Corinthians 12:27
