Liturgical Preparation Aid: Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

June 11, 2023

On June 19, 2022, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) launched a Eucharistic Revival initiative. On June 11, 2023 the country enters a phase which will more directly impact parish celebrations and formation efforts. With this campaign, we will recommit ourselves to our Eucharistic identity and will reaffirm our faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. We believe that the best way to increase faith in the Eucharist is the full and authentic celebration of the Mass – the source and summit of our faith (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, 10). Adoration of the Eucharist flows from the Mass and leads us back to it.

This booklet will is one of several resources, website postings, and formation opportunities which the Federation is providing during the Eucharistic Revival. We also encourage you to examine the many popular FDLC books and bulletin articles on the Mass (in English and Spanish) which are already available here.
