Today is the feast of Corpus Christi, which is always on the Thursday following Trinity Sunday, although in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite this feast is celebrated on Sunday, May 25.

Mark 14: 22 And whilst they were eating, Jesus took bread; and blessing, broke, and gave to them, and said: Take ye. This is my body. 23 And having taken the chalice, giving thanks, he gave it to them. And they all drank of it. 24 And he said to them: This is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many.

Today begins the Novena to the Sacred Heart in anticipation of the Feast of the Sacred Heart which will be on Friday of next week.

Prayer of Reparation

O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.
