O sacrum convivium

"O sacred banquet,
in which Christ
is received,
the memory of His Passion
is renewed,
the mind
is filled with grace,
and a pledge
of future glory
given to us."
O sacrum convivium,
in quo Christus sumitur:
recolitur memoria
passionis eius;

mens impletur gratia
et futurae gloriae
nobis pignus datur.

Today many places celebrate the Solemnity of Corpus Christi - the Body (and Blood) of Christ
