The 19th of June, 2022, Sunday is this year’s celebration day for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. The Holy Bible verses for the Corpus Christi mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar of the Year 2022.

Reading 1: GN 14:18-20

The first reading from the Book of Genesis.

Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High.

He blessed him, and said, “Blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth.

Blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand.” Abram gave him a tenth of all.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 110:1, 2, 3, 4

Response: “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”

Yahweh says to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool for your feet.”

R: “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”

Yahweh will send out the rod of your strength out of Zion. Rule among your enemies.

R: “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”

Your people offer themselves willingly in the day of your power, in holy array. Out of the womb of the morning, you have the dew of your youth.

R: “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”

Yahweh has sworn, and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”

R: “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”

Reading 2: 1 COR 11:23-26

The second reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

For I received from the Lord that which also I delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night in which he was betrayed took bread.

When he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “Take, eat. This is my body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of me.”

In the same way he also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of me.”

For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

Sequence: "Lauda Sion"

Part 1:

Laud, O Sion, thy salvation,
Laud with hymns of exultation
Christ, thy King and Shepherd true:
Spend thyself, his honour raising,
Who surpasseth all thy praising;
Never canst thou reach his due.

Sing today, the mystery showing
Of the living, life-bestowing
Bread from heaven before thee set;
E’en the same of old provided,
Where the Twelve, divinely guided.
At the holy Table met.

Full and clear ring out thy chanting,
Joy nor sweetest grace be wanting
To thy heart and soul today;
When we gather up the measure
Of that Supper and its treasure,
Keeping feast in glad array.

Lo, the new King’s Table gracing,
This new Passover of blessing
Hath fulfilled the elder rite:
Now the new the old effaceth,
Truth revealed the shadow chaseth,
Day is breaking on the night.

What he did at Supper seated,
Christ ordained to be repeated,
His memorial ne’er to cease:
And, his word for guidance taking,
Bread and wine we hallow, making
Thus our Sacrifice of peace.

This the truth to Christians given –
Bread becomes his Flesh from heaven.
Wine becomes his holy Blood.
Doth it pass thy comprehending?
Yet by faith, thy sight transcending,
Wondrous things are understood.

Yea, beneath these signs are hidden
Glorious things to sight forbidden:
Look not on the outward sign.
Wine is poured and Bread is broken,
But in either sacred token
Christ is here by power divine.

Whoso of this Food partaketh,
Christ divideth not nor breaketh:
He is whole to all that taste.
Thousands are, as one, receivers,
One, as thousands of believers,
Takes the Food that cannot waste.

Good and evil men are sharing
One repast, a oom preparing
Varied as the heart of man;
Doom of life or death awarded,
As their days shall be recorded
Which from one beginning ran.

Part 2:

When the Sacrament is broken,
Doubt not in each severed token,
Hallowed by the word once spoken,
Resteth all the true content:
Nought the precious Gift divideth,
Breaking but the sign betideth,
He himself the same abideth,
Nothing of his fullness spent.

Lo! the Angel’s Food is given
To the pilgrim who hath striven:
See the children’s Bread from heaven,
Which to dogs may not be cast;
Truth the ancient types fulfilling,
Isaac bound, a victim willing,
Paschal lamb, its life-blood spilling.
Manna sent in ages past.

Part 3:

O true Bread, good Shepherd, tend us,
Jesu, of thy love befriend us,
Thou refresh us, thou defend us,
Thine eternal goodness send us
In the land of life to see;
Thou who all things canst and knowest,
Who on earth such Food bestowest,
Grant us with thy Saints, though lowest,
Where the heavenly Feast thou showest,
Fellow-heirs and guests to be.
Amen. Alleluya.

Gospel of the Day: LK 9:11B-17

From the gospel scripture according to Luke.

He welcomed them, spoke to them of God’s Kingdom, and he cured those who needed healing.

The day began to wear away; and the twelve came and said to him, “Send the multitude away, that they may go into the surrounding villages and farms and lodge and get food, for we are here in a deserted place.”

But he said to them, “You give them something to eat.” They said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we should go and buy food for all these people.”

For they were about five thousand men. He said to his disciples, “Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.”

They did so, and made them all sit down.

He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to the sky, he blessed them, broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude.

They ate and were all filled. They gathered up twelve baskets of broken pieces that were left over.
