Corpus Christi and First Communion

The Solemnity traditionally known as Corpus Christi, now known as the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.  Some liturgical trivia: How many remember Corpus Christi and Precious Blood being two separate feasts?  Before the Novus Ordo (1969), Corpus Christi was the Thursday after Trinity (the Sunday after Trinity was simply the Second Sunday after Pentecost), while the Precious Blood was on the fixed date of July 1.

Quod scripsi, scripsi!* (see post scriptum below)
BMP

*Post Scriptum: "Quod scripsi, scripsi" were the words of Pontius Pilate in St. John's account of the Passion of our Lord, which is read on Good Friday.  When Pilate wrote on Jesus' cross, "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews", the chief priests told Pilate to write instead that Jesus *said* that he was the King of the Jews, to which Pilate responded, "What I have written, I have written," or in Latin, "Quod scripsi, scripsi," which I have taken for my trademark since changing the name of my personal blog from "Christus Vincit" to "Epistles from the Scriptorium".
