Meaning "body of Christ" in Latin, the festival of Corpus Christi in Germany and other predominantly Christian countries celebrates the Eucharist as the body of Christ.
This jubilant celebration is honored by Roman Catholics and other Christians to proclaim the truth of the transubstantiation of bread and wine into the actual body of Christ during the Mass ceremony.
St. Paul, wrote that the Mystical Body of Christ is a mystical union of ALL Christians into a spiritual body with Jesus Christ as their head.
St. Augustine, reaffirmed and amplified Paul's assertion that the Christian church is a spiritual extension of Christ's body.
Since not all of us True Believers belong to organized churches that distribute Holy Communion, we can emulate Jesus at the Last Supper during all of our meals when He took the bread and gave thanks, broke it and gave it to His apostles and proclaimed:
"This is my Body given up for you ~ do this in remembrance of me."
In the same way after supper He took the cup, saying:
“This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you."
When we give thanks and praise before and during our meals for the loving abundance of food that He has blessed us with, Christ Yeshua in His mystical body is present with us.
He is the vine and we are His branches and He wants us to bear much fruit.
