How to Live Corpus Christi

Dr. Edward Sri

If you doubt that the Eucharist is truly the body of Christ, then celebrating the great feast of Corpus Christi can open the eyes of your heart. Dr. Sri explains the significance and history of the feast of Corpus Christi, and offers us four practical ways to celebrate it with true devotion.

Snippet of the Show

“Let us pray for an outpouring of Eucharistic faith and love in our own hearts and in the world.”


How to Live Corpus Christi: 

  1. Pray the Corpus Christi Novena. Specifically ask for an outpouring of eucharistic faith and love in your own heart and in the world.

  2. Join a Eucharistic procession at your local parish. Don’t be afraid to publicly express your faith.

  3. Make a visit to the Blessed sacrament, spend time with Jesus in adoration.

  4. If you can’t go into a Church, try praying outside the Church. Show Jesus that you’re trying to draw near to him.
