CORPUS CHRISTI

       Today’s celebration of Corpus Christi, the Body of Christ, is the feast of the very center and heart of our church, Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.  This solemnity was instituted in the year 1264 by then Pope Urban IV.  It came about because of a Eucharistic Miracle that happened the previous year, 1263.  A priest from Prague was on route to Rome making a pilgrimage asking God for help to strengthen his faith since he was having doubts about his vocation.  Along the way he stopped in Bolsena 70 miles north of Rome.  While celebrating Mass there, as he raised the host during the consecration, the bread turned into flesh and began to bleed.  The drops of blood fell onto the small white cloth on the altar, called the corporal.  That blood-stained corporal can still be seen in the Basilica of Orvieto north of Rome.  The Pope asked St Thomas Aquinas, living at that time, to write hymns for the feast and he wrote two, the Tantum Ergo and O Salutaris, both still used today during Eucharistic Adoration, Exposition and Benediction. Although that’s the Eucharistic Miracle that led to the institution of this feast, a more famous Eucharistic Miracle is the Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano, also in Italy, which took place many centuries earlier, in the year 700.  A monk who feared he was losing his vocation was celebrating Mass, and during the consecration the host turned into flesh and the wine turned into blood.  Despite the fact that the miracle took place almost 1300 years ago, you may still see the flesh in a monstrance which is exposed every day and the blood in a glass chalice.  The blood has congealed and is now in five clots in the glass chalice.  In 1971 and 1981 a hospital laboratory tested the flesh and blood and discovered that the flesh is myocardium, which is heart muscular tissue, so we could say it’s the heart of Jesus, the Sacred Heart, and the blood is of the blood group AB.  In 1978 NASA scientists tested the blood on the Turin Shroud and interestingly also discovered that it is of the blood group AB.  (The Sudarium, Face Cloth of Christ, in John 20:6 is also of the blood group AB.)  Despite the fact that human flesh and blood should not have remained preserved for 1300 years the hospital lab tests found no trace of any preservatives.  One final interesting point about the five blood clots in the chalice is that when you weigh one of them, it’s the same weight as all five together, two of them together weigh the same as all five.  In fact no matter what way you combine the blood clots individually or in a group to weigh them, they always weigh the same.  (This shows that the full Jesus is present in a particle of the Eucharist no matter how small.)

       If you’re wondering why I’m giving you examples of Eucharistic Miracles, it’s because we as human beings have a hard time truly seeing the bread and wine after consecration as the real flesh and blood of Jesus himself.  Our intellectual reasoning tells us that they’re still just bread and wine.  So what’s keeping us from really believing?  It’s our “FAITH,” the faith we have in the words of Jesus when he said, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you.   Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day.  For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.   Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.  (John 6:53-56)  We need to add faith to our reasoning and only then will the celebration of the Most Holy Eucharist have the profound meaning Jesus desires for us.

       May Jesus in the Eucharist always be the very center and heart of our church, the center and heart of our faith, the center and heart of our parish, and the center and heart of the lives of each of us.

O Sacrament most holy,
O Sacrament divine,
All praise and all thanksgiving
Be every moment thine.
