The modern, post-VII idea that Corpus Christi has become the Feast of the Body and Blood of Our Lord is worrying. Our Lord's Body feeds us, vivifies us and prepares us for our eternal reward. His Blood, shed seven times, redeems us through His suffering. They do not represent the same thing at all. I can put up with the feast being transferred to last Wednesday but the idea that the two feasts should be merged into one is as dreadful an example as there can be of the cloth-eared liturgical illiteracy of those responsible for the reformed Calendar. The problem isn't that they weren't trying to make the Church less unacceptable to non-Catholics: the problem is that they were simply useless, culpably useless.
