Dominican Nuns Corpus Christi Monastery

“The term Body of Christ, Corpus Christi in Latin, applies especially to the Real Presence of Our Lord in the sacrament of the Eucharist. When the faithful come to pray before the Eucharist, you can see how that Body of Christ is adored within the Body of Christ, which is the Church. At Corpus Christi Monastery in the Bronx, this is a daily devotion of its cloistered Dominican nuns. The white-hot intensity of such a closeness and devotion to Jesus is evident in the history of this beautiful monastery and the holy sisters within it.” From Dominicana. Read article by Br.
