On Sunday, June 14, Catholics will celebrate the feast of the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, that is, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. These past few months, our faith communities have been longing to receive the Body and Blood of Christ. As our churches begin to slowly re-open, the celebration of the Holy Eucharist takes on an even deeper meaning and significance at this time. EWTN is pleased to offer the following resources to mark this important feast:
- EWTN’s live coverage of Pope Francis leading the faithful in the Solemnity of Corpus Christi Mass, followed by the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, on Sunday, June 14 at 1:00 pm ET (attached is an image which you can use or share online).
- Let your parishioners know more about “The Origins of the Feast of Corpus Christi” through this short video link which you can copy / share from our EWTN Vatican Facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/185961818737973/posts/542399206427564/?sfnsn=mo&d=n&vh=e
- Lastly, our website also offers useful information on what the teaching of the Church is in regards to the Holy Eucharist: https://www.ewtn.com/catholicism/teachings/holy-eucharist-43
Please feel free to share the above information with the parishioners in your diocese. EWTN is accessible via cable TV or online through our website and our YouTube channel and via the EWTN mobile app.

P.S. We appreciate the positive feedback we’ve received on our recent online coverage of the March for Life and the airing of the “Be Not Afraid” Canadian pro-life special last May 14. It was indeed great to hear heartwarming support on issues that affect the sanctity of life – from conception to death – here in Canada. If you weren’t able to catch this special which was hosted by EWTN’s Doug Keck, click this YouTube link.
“The Eucharist is the sacrament of unity. Whoever receives it cannot fail to be a builder of unity, because building unity has become part of his or her “spiritual DNA”.’ – Pope Francis
