Post #226

Topics:  Feast of Corpus Christi :  The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ ...Lux Occulta Website: Archived Catholic Pamphlets

Well! A few months ago I tried taking a break from Venite Missa Est! but it turned into an unintended absence. After hearing from more than a few folks I have decided to try blogging again. Blogging, while  a great idea when one starts, can, in a busy life, become a burden. Between very odd work hours, school and a one year old grand baby (and another due any day), life has become very demanding for me.
Recently I've had quite a few inquiries from "out of towners" and my fellow Latin Mass attendees about this blog...."what happened?" and also for general information concerning mass schedules. SO, lets try this blogging thing again, shall we? If you want to contribute please do so (original content, personal stories or links)....my original intent was to share our collective spiritual richness (such that the EFLR is) with each other and friends we have not yet met. So this blog really belongs to US!

Note: You can also subscribe to this blog by email (see right hand column), RSS Feed (tell me, does anyone use Feed Readers anymore?) and on Twitter.

..and now for the necessaries.

Please note: St. Anthony Catholic Church is one of only two churches celebrating the Traditional Latin Mass (EFLR) in the Wichita area. Though this blog is loosely centered around this parish and it's members, Venite Missa Est! is by no means, in any way an official voice of, or for, St. Anthony Parish or the Diocese of Wichita. Venite Missa Est! is strictly a private layman's endeavor.


Feast of Corpus Christi
June 7, 2012
The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

In 1246, Bishop Robert de Thorete of the Belgina diocese of Liège, at the suggestion of St. Juliana of Mont Cornillon (also in Belgium), convened a synod and instituted the celebration of the feast. From Liège, the celebration began to spread, and, on September 8, 1264, Pope Urban IV issued the papal bull "Transiturus," which established the Feast of Corpus Christi as a universal feast of the Church, to be celebrated on the Thursday following Trinity Sunday.

At the request of Pope Urban IV, St. Thomas Aquinas composed the office (the official prayers of the Church) for the feast. This office is widely considered one of the most beautiful in the traditional Roman Breviary (the official prayer book of the Divine Office or Liturgy of the Hours), and it is the source of the famous Eucharistic hymns "Pange Lingua Gloriosi" and "Tantum Ergo Sacramentum."

For centuries after the celebration was extended to the universal Church, the feast was also celebrated with a eucharistic procession, in which the Sacred Host was carried throughout the town, accompanied by hymns and litanies. The faithful would venerate the Body of Christ as the procession passed by. In recent years, this practice has almost disappeared, though some parishes still hold a brief procession around the outside of the parish church.

While the Feast of Corpus Christi is one of the ten Holy Days of Obligation in the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, in some countries, including the United States, the feast has been transferred to the following Sunday.

Follow the link to many an old Catholic pamphlet from days gone by. Very interesting.
