Becoming the Body of Christ

"The feast of Corpus Christi, or The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, was a local celebration in Liège (now Belgium) until 1230, when St Julienne de Cornillon brought to Pope Urban IV the news of a vision she had of a bleeding Eucharistic host. From then on it became a celebration for the whole Church of the real presence of Christ’s body and blood in the Eucharist."
