Honestly, I do not know exactly why the holiday is so significant, so here are excerpts from a BBC article for further explanation:
- This jubilant festival is celebrated by Roman Catholics and other Christians to proclaim the truth of the transubstantiation of bread and wine into the actual body of Christ during Mass.
Afterwards, we went to O'Neill's Irish Pub & Kitchen in Oxford's city center. I already had supper, so I bought my first ice cream in Oxford today--it was amazing.
- Corpus Christi is marked by a service originally devised by Thomas Aquinas. It includes five great hymns, including Panis Angelicus (part of a longer hymn called Sacris Solemniis, 'At this our solemn feast').
