Corpus Christi Sunday 2016 -- A Day Dedicated to the Real Presence

Introduction :

The Feast of Corpus Christi Sunday is on May 29, 2016.

Our Lord Jesus Christ wanted one "Special Feast Day" set aside in honour of "His Real Presence" in the Blessed Sacrament.

For, He said as the Church progressed in time; Faith in "His Real Presence" would diminish to the point where it would need a "Feast Day" to remind the people that he is really and substantially present !!

"That the Eucharist is the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ" and not just a symbol but the reality of Jesus Christ himself.

This is the divine enthusiasm which welcomes us in the Blessed Sacrament.

No Matter, if we are the greatest saint or the greatest sinner on earth, Jesus Christ welcomes us with all the "Divine Yearning" of his Eucharistic Heart.

Here, He puts a robe of glory on us. For each Holy Hour we make will leave us everlastingly more beautiful in Heaven because Jesus Christ bathes us in His own glory for every moment we spend in his Eucharistic Presence.

He remains hidden in the Blessed Sacrament because he asks us to come to Him in Faith.

Each Holy Hour, We make increases our union with Him and deepens the personal relationship we have with "Our Saviour".

Conclusion :

This Feast is the rejoicing of Angels and Saints because we responded to Our Lord's call to show our appreciation for the gift of His Total Presence in this Holy Sacrament where Day and Night He waits for us to visit him.
