The Last Supper

"On the night of that Last Supper,

seated with His chosen band,

He the Pascal victim eating,

first fulfills the Law's command;

then as Food to His Apostles

gives Himself with His own hand."

 

- from the hymn, Pange lingua, by St Thomas Aquinas, OP.

 

Today, 3 June 2010, is the feast of Corpus Christi, which recalls the institution of the Holy Eucharist, and thanks God for the gift of Christ's Body and Blood, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament and given to mankind for their life and salvation.

 

This is a detail from a window in Preston-on-Stour.
