Profiteers of Protestantism avoid Corpus Christi. Why?

Only Catholics recognize:  Jesus used His Power to let His priests give us His Actual Body and Blood.  A first step?  Reading ‘Lauda Sion’ in this Daily Column!


Question 1:   “Why do Willful Protestants avoid Corpus Christi, the Holy Day Catholics celebrate The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ?

Answer:   “‘Corpus Christi’ is the Day Catholics gratefully recognize The Power of Jesus Christ to replace the old sacrifice;  the blood of ‘young bulls’ that God empowered Moses to bring to The Twelve Tribes in Exodus 24:3-8,  1,446 years before Christ:

‘Then he took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, saying, ‘This is the blood of the covenant that The Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words of His.’


Question 2:  “Did The Psalms Prophesy God’s Approval of Christ’s new ‘blood of the covenant’ 500 years later?”

Psalm 116:12-18 includes:  ‘How shall I make a return to The Lord for all the good he has done for me?  The cup of salvation I will take up, and I will call upon The Name of The Lord.’ 

Then, Catholics heed God’s Prophecy about His Son and Mary in verses 15-16:  ‘Dear in the eyes of The Lord is the death of His devoted.  Lord, I am Your servant, Your servant, the child of Your maidservant;  you have loosed my bonds.’

That Prophecy precisely predicted what Mary would say to The Angel Gabriel in Luke 1:38 about the ‘child’ Mary would agree to bear:   ‘I will be the maidservant of The Lord.’


Question 3:  “Did The Twelve Disciples know that Jesus and Mary had fulfilled That Prophetic Psalm?”

Answer:  “Christ’s chosen Catholic Cardinal-Bishops ordained priests and Bishops among growing numbers of Catholics in and beyond The Roman Empire.  St. Paul tells us in Heb. 9:11-14 how they honored That Prophecy!

‘Brothers and sisters:  When Christ came as high priest of the good things that have come to be, passing through the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made by hands, that is, not belonging to this creation, He entered once for all into the sanctuary, not with the blood of goats and calves but with His Own Blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption.’


Question 4:  “Is Cardinal-Bishop Paul telling us that Catholics do not ‘belong to this creation’?”

Answer:  “Only Catholics can be ‘belong’ to The Creator of ‘this creation’‘For if the blood of goats and bulls and the sprinkling of a heifer’s ashes can sanctify those who are defiled so that their flesh is cleansed, how much more will the blood of Christ, Who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works to worship the living God.’


Question 5:  “Do Profiteers of Protestantism have marketing plans to provide Communion to their donors?”

Answer:  “Welch’s Grape Juice was invented so Protestant services could replace the ‘wine’ that Jesus transformed into His Blood at The Last Supper!   That lets them avoid considering that Jesus empowered His Catholic priests with The Power to Preside over The Miracle Of Transubstantiation at every Catholic Mass following The Last Supper.  The difference between Catholicism and Protestantism is the difference between wine and Welch’s Grape Juice.”


Question 6:  “One of the smartest men who ever lived was St. Thomas Aquinas.  Did he explain the difference between Catholic and Protestant Communion?”

Answer:  “His magnificent writings include ‘Lauda Sion’, which translates to:  ‘Praising Zion’.  He shows the difference between Catholic and Protestant teaching on The Blood of Christ!  It is worth reading!

Laud, O Zion, your salvation,
Laud with hymns of exultation,
Christ, your king and shepherd true:

Bring him all the praise you know,
He is more than you bestow.
Never can you reach his due.

Special theme for glad thanksgiving
Is the quick’ning and the living
Bread today before you set:

From his hands of old partaken,
As we know, by faith unshaken,
Where the Twelve at supper met.

Full and clear ring out your chanting,
Joy nor sweetest grace be wanting,
From your heart let praises burst:

For today the feast is holden,
When the institution olden
Of that supper was rehearsed.

Here the new law’s new oblation,
By the new king’s revelation,
Ends the form of ancient rite:

Now the new the old effaces,
Truth away the shadow chases,
Light dispels the gloom of night.

What he did at supper seated,
Christ ordained to be repeated,
His memorial ne’er to cease:

And his rule for guidance taking,
Bread and wine we hallow, making
Thus our sacrifice of peace.

This the truth each Christian learns,
Bread into his flesh he turns,
To his precious blood the wine:

Sight has fail’d, nor thought conceives,
But a dauntless faith believes,
Resting on a pow’r divine.

Here beneath these signs are hidden
Priceless things to sense forbidden;
Signs, not things are all we see:

Blood is poured and flesh is broken,
Yet in either wondrous token
Christ entire we know to be.

Whoso of this food partakes,
Does not rend the Lord nor breaks;
Christ is whole to all that taste:

Thousands are, as one, receivers,
One, as thousands of believers,
Eats of him who cannot waste.

Bad and good the feast are sharing,
Of what divers dooms preparing,
Endless death, or endless life.

Life to these, to those damnation,
See how like participation
Is with unlike issues rife.

When the sacrament is broken,
Doubt not, but believe ‘tis spoken,
That each sever’d outward token
doth the very whole contain.

Nought the precious gift divides,
Breaking but the sign betides
Jesus still the same abides,
still unbroken does remain.'”

May all be blessed to read, understand, and be Catholic!  If we are too lazy, John 6:51 has a shorter expression of the same Truth about Catholic Communion:

‘I am the living bread that came down from heaven, says the Lord;  whoever eats this bread will live forever.’
Question 6:  “Did Jesus Christ explain that in His Own Words?”
Answer:  “Mk 14:22-26 gives us Actual Words of Jesus that bless many to be Catholic!  ‘While they were eating, He took bread, said the blessing, broke it, gave it to them, and said,  ‘Take it; this is My body.
Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, and they all drank from it.
He said to them,  ‘This is My blood of the covenant, which will be shed for many.
Amen, I say to you, I shall not drink again the fruit of the vine until the day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.'”
Question 7:  “What did The Disciples do when The First Catholic Mass was over?”
Answer:  “‘Then, after singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.’

Question 8:  “What ‘hymn’ did they sing?”

Answer:  “An early version of ‘Lauda Sion’!
