The accurate name for the feast is The Body and Blood of Christ , or Corpus et Sanguis Christi if you prefer a Latin name .
Before the calendar was reformed there used to be the feast of Corpus Christi , and then on July 1st the feast of The Precious Blood .
With the reform of the calendar the two feasts were combined to become the feast of The Body and Blood of Christ .
It better reflects the command of Christ at the Last Supper that we both eat AND drink .
Christ’s command is for us to eat of the consecrated bread , the Body of Christ , and to drink of the consecrated wine , the Blood of Christ .
