Ave verum corpus JPEG

Hail, true Body, born of Mary the Virgin;            truly suffering, sacrificed on the cross for man;   from Whose pierced side flowed water and blood. Be to us a foretaste at death’s trial, O sweet Jesus, O loving Jesus, O Jesus Son of Mary.

In honour of the Holy Eucharist

Suggested use: Benediction, Hymn for Solemnity of Corpus Christi;  Mass: Offertory, Communion
