Christian Art | Allegory of the Eucharist

This Sunday, in the Liturgy of the Mass, Catholics around the globe will celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi - from the Latin, also known as the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. St. Paul wrote vividly about what the Catholic Church believes is the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist; and the Catholic Church has defended the apostolic origins of this belief for two millennia. Man is ordered to the good, the true, and the beautiful because, as the Catholic Church teaches, in such things we encounter God. Today, we encounter "Allegory of the Eucharist" by Alexander Coosemans.
