A Thought on the Body and Blood of Christ...

It is Sunday of the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, a.k.a. Corpus Christi.

I was thinking about the title 'Corpus Christi' and instead of looking at it from a purely doctrinal or theological point of view, what came to me was simply an idea that, should we ever built another church and that the next obvious place may very well be the Ponggol area, it should be named as Corpus Christi.

Why, you may ask?

Well, looking at all the churches/parishes we have so far in our archdiocese, most of the titles and celebrations pertaining or related significantly to Christ are already named: Sacred Heart, Divine Mercy, Blessed Sacrament, Christ the King, Risen Christ and even Good Shepherd. Closer to this would be Trinity, Holy Spirit and Holy Cross. That leaves 'Corpus Christi' up for grabs for the next possible name of a new parish, if that ever comes about. So, the next time an exercise comes about to name your next new parish church, wherever it may be, give some loving to 'Corpus Christi', ya!...

Isn't 'Blessed Sacrament' = 'Corpus Christi'?

Well, not directly its meaning in terms of name, spelling & syntax of the word.

Its ultimate represenration is the same, but I am refering to the actual naming that isn't used yet when we compared it to the names of the solemnities of The Lord that we have in the liturgical calendar.

Perhaps, Bl Sacrament could have been named Corpus Christi instead....
