St. John Paul II and the Feast of Corpus Christi

"The Eucharistic mystery is in fact the "summit of evangelization" (Lumen gentium, n. 28), for it is the most eminent testimony to Christ's Resurrection. "
~ Pope John Paul II, May 28, 1996

Today is the Feast of Corpus Christi, which was introduced in the late 13th century to encourage the faithful give special honor to the institution of the Holy Eucharist.

Fr. Denis Meade, OSB, offers his thoughts on the Gospel for the Feast of Corpus Christi. The readings can be found HERE.
