Corpus Christi (Year C)

Psalm text (Ps 110:1, 2, 3, 4)

You are a priest forever in the line of Melchizedek.

The Lord said to my Lord sit at my right hand,
till I make your enemies your footstool.

The scepter of your power the Lord will stretch forth from Zion,
rule in the midst of your enemies.

Yours is princely power in the day of your birth, in holy splendor
before the daystar like the dew I have begotten you.

The Lord has sworn, and He will not repent,
You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.



Gospel Verse (Jn 6:51)

I am the living bread that came down from heaven, says the Lord; whoever eats this bread will live forever.
