The Feast of Corpus Christi 2021 | Bethlehem Handicrafts

The Feast of Corpus Christi, also known as the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, is a liturgical solemnity observed by Roman Catholics, Anglicans, and Western Orthodox Christians to commemorate the Real Presence of Jesus Christ's Body (corpus), Blood, Soul, and Divinity in the elements of the Holy Communion.

It is a movable observance that occurs on the Thursday (or Sunday in some countries) following Trinity Sunday and is a holy day of obligation in many countries.

Here are some of our hand-carved olive wood crosses that you can find on our olive wood store that are related to the Feast of Corpus Christi

Enrich your home with great Christian ideals for a serenity of the mind and overwhelming love.

This olive wood cross has five glass capsules filled with 5 souvenirs from all over the Holy Land affixed on each corner of the cross and in the middle of it.
