Corpus Christi

Today is the feast of Corpus Christi.

The blessing-cup, which we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ; and the loaf of bread which we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ?

And as there is one loaf, so we, although there are many of us, are one single body, for we all share in the one loaf.

1 Corinthians 10:16-17

My favourite banners of all time! These were made for the Year of the Eucharist in 2005 and they are still going strong now. I used gold satin for the letters, cream and gold silk for the artwork, so they sparkle in the light.

I just wanted to show you this gorgeous piece of crocheted lace which hangs over the edge of the altar. It comes out on special occasions (Christmas, Easter, First Communion). I always wonder who made it and how long it took?

And if you are curious about transubstantiation then Marcellino can explain it way better than me!

Hope you had a good weekend,
