Corpus Christi (Also know as Corpus Domini)

Corpus Christi is a Christian festival where Christians honour the Holy body of the Christ. It is also known as Corpus Domini, which is a Latin term meaning "Body and Blood of Jesus". The festival is celebrated differently among Christians in different regions of the world. The common component is that bread and wine are usually offered as a symbol of the Body and Blood of Christ in His communion.

Whatever way the festival is celebrated, the main objective is to celebrate the suffering, death and resurrection of the Jesus. The principle behind the festival is the Last Supper of Jesus with His Disciples. He said that anyone who believes in Him to do this in remembrance of Him. This festival has been used to fulfil that final wish. However, not all followers of Christ celebrate Corpus Christi, but still participate in Holy Communion to serve the same purpose.
