Corpus Christi Bread

This bread gives nourishment to the body as does Holy Communion gives nourishment to the soul.

Today is the feast of Corpus Christi. This Feast celebrates the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist is also known as communion. Corpus Christi is a time when people come together as one body to remember and celebrate the life of Jesus.

Corpus Christi is a latin phrase meaning body of Christ. It commemorates the Last Supper on the day before Jesus was crucified.

Corpus Christi has been celebrated by Catholics as far back as the 1200’s.

Bread has long been a symbol of life and nourishment in the Catholic Faith. I thought it fitting to bake some bread to celebrate the most Holy Eucharist.
