The devotion to the precious Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist is a devotion that developed slowly through the history of the Church, reaching full expression in the 13th century when St. Thomas Aquinas proposed it to Pope Urban IV following the Eucharistic miracle of Bolsena. The Feast emphasizes the joy of the Eucharist being the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. After the Mass of Corpus Christi, it is customary to place a consecrated host in a monstrance and have a procession. The feast falls on the Sunday following Trinity Sunday.
This rosary seeks to encapsulate the beauty of the feast. Tortoise Luster Druk Czech Glass represents the bread that becomes the body of Christ. Garnet Red Druk Czech Glass represents the wine that becomes the blood of Christ. The rosary has an Angels First Communion Centerpiece, signifying that the Eucharist is the "Bread of Angels." (Ps 78:25, Wis 16:20) The Monstrance Crucifix bears the likeness to a monstrance, further reinforcing the rosary's connection to the feast. The rosary is completed with a Sacred Heart/Blessed Sacrament medal, on the front of which is the Sacred Heart and on the back is the Blessed Sacrament in a monstrance.
