The Parishioners of Corpus Christi, Toronto
Daily Mass (Tues-Fri): 9 am • Saturday (Vigil): 5 pm • Sunday: 9:30 am and 11 am
The solemnity of Corpus Christi is so close to our heart as we are the members of the Corpus Christi Parish Family. It would have been a big day for us as we have been preparing for the 100th Anniversary celebration on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi on June 14, 2020. However, with the present situation of the pandemic we are compelled to postpone our parish celebration for a later date. Still let us prepare for the liturgical celebration of the Solemnity of Corpus Christi. In order to help us all prepare for the solemnity I have added a Novena Prayer. We begin the Novena today as we pray this for the next nine days, prior to the celebration. May the Eucharistic Lord bless us all.
The Last Supper Window in our church gives us the best view of the “Upper Room” where Jesus had the last supper with his disciples. In a very special way it helps us to relate ourselves with the Sacrifice of Mass offered at the Altar.
The Feast of Corpus Christi, or the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ celebrates the institution of the Sacrament of Holy Communion at the Last Supper. Christ’s Body and Blood in the Holy Communion are our true foods as Christians. They give us strength to live our lives in union with God and to do His holy will.
Corpus Christi Novena Prayer
(June 5 - 13)
Most Holy and Almighty God, we thank you and praise you for giving us the most precious body and blood of Your only son, Jesus Christ. Through the institution of the Sacrament of Holy Communion we are able to nourish our bodies and souls. We thank you for having made Yourself our food and for uniting us with You in this beautiful Sacrament.
In receiving the body and blood of Jesus, we live in You and through You. We praise you for offering Yourself as a continual sacrifice to Your Eternal Father for our salvation. Although we are not worthy to receive You, You sacrifice Yourself for us daily. And so, we request your most Holy intercession:
(State your intentions here)
If it is Your holy Will, please grant our requests.
Most holy body and blood of Christ, grant us the sacred mysteries so that we may know the grace of Your Redemption.
Dear Lord Jesus, You made the ultimate sacrifice so that You could wash away the sins of the whole world. You have left us the great gift of your body and blood through the Holy Eucharist. We thank you and praise you every day for renewing in the daily sacrifice the actual sacrifice of the cross offered on Calvary, in which you gave divine justice and love for all of us sinners.
Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, have mercy on us.
