Corpus Christi is a Catholic holiday celebrated to honor the death and resurrection of Christ.
Celebrated 60 days after Easter Sunday and always takes place on a Thursday because it would be the day that Holy Supper took place.
The holiday was created around 1264, by Pope Urban IV, after hearing from a Belgian nun that she had visions that this date should be celebrated.
Over time, the Corpus Christi party arrived in Brazil along with the Portuguese. To this day, it is one of the most important and remarkable dates in the Catholic calendar. Masses and processions are held.
An important curiosity is that the Corpus Christi party is not referenced in the Bible, but its history is.
Therefore, today I invite you to read some Bible verses that explain about Corpus Christi in the Bible.
It is a valid exercise that serves as a reflection for people who follow Catholicism. For those who don’t know, it’s worth understanding a little more about the history of the Bible and how it works. Shall we check?
Corpus Christi in the Bible – History through Catholicism
Verses from the Body of Christ
Just as each of us has a body with many members, and these members do not all perform the same function, so in Christ we, who are many, form one body, and each member is linked to all the others.
Now I rejoice in my sufferings for you, and I complete in my body what is left of the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of his body, which is the church.
Furthermore, no one ever hated his own body, but feeds and cares for it, as Christ also does the church, for we are members of his body.
He is the head of the body,
what is the church;
is the beginning and the firstborn
from the dead,
so that in everything he may have supremacy.
From him the whole body, held together and united by the help of every joint, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part performs its function.
1 Corinthians 6:15
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I take the members of Christ and unite them with a harlot? In no way!
Verses about the Holy Supper
“Taking bread, he gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to the disciples, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper, he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, shed for you.”
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and dine with him, and he with me.”
“Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you will have no life in yourselves. Everyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.
For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Everyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.
Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on me will live because of me.”
1 Corinthians 11:27-30
“Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. Examine yourselves each and then eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For whoever eats and drinks without discerning the body of the Lord eats and drinks to his own condemnation. Therefore there are many weak and sick among you, and many have slept.”
1 Corinthians 11:33-34
“Therefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that when you come together, it will not result in condemnation. For the rest, when I go I will give you instructions.”
Acts of the Apostles 2:22-24
“Israelites, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth was approved by God before you by miracles and wonders and signs that God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. This man was given up for the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God; and you, with the help of wicked men, killed him, nailing him to the cross. But God raised him from the dead, breaking the bonds of death, because it was impossible for death to hold him.”
