3rd June 2009 The Solemnity (i.e. major feast) of Corpus Christi is now called the Body and Blood of Christ. It is celebrated either on the Thursday or the Sunday following Trinity Sunday. It commemorates the presence of Christ in the Eucharist. The Solemnity of Christ the King is the last Sunday of the liturgical year, and is the Sunday before Advent; thus, it falls at the end of November. The feast celebrates the Catholic belief that Christ is Lord of the Universe.

Which feast celabrates the body and blood of christ?

In the liturgical churches, such as the Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican, and Lutheran churches, there are two major feast days which celebrate the body and blood of Christ -- in addition to every Sunday.The first is Holy Thursday, which is celebrated just prior to Resurrection (Easter) Sunday. Church tradition commemorates the Last Supper on Holy Thursday, which is viewed as the first instance of transubstantiation -- the miraculous transformation of the seder bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ Himself.The second feast is Corpus Christi Sunday, which occurs second to last in the church calendar year. The final Sunday of the church year is Christ The King, and after that the season of Advent ensues. Corpus Christi Sunday therefore comes in mid- or late November.
