The Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi). Fr John Farrell preaches on the meanings of 'Body of Christ'.

In the Catholic Tradition we use the phrase 'Body Of Christ' in three distinct but interconnecting ways. The first and constant use is to refer to Jesus himself, stressing the full humanity of the Incarnate Son of God. He was formed in his mother's womb, was born and grew. He bodily touched the untouchable leper. He walked through the villages and fields of his native land. He spoke God's word in a human way. He ate and drank. He suffered, was tortured, murdered and was dead and bodily buried.

But he is no longer dead, but Risen and glorified in his body. He is no longer bound by time and space as we are, and he was in his earthly life. He is alive and with us. He is the Lord actively reigning in his own creation.
