St Thomas Aquinas - O precious and wonderful banquet!

I don’t know how many people have access to the Divine Office. The office of Matins has as the second reading for today this piece from the works of St Thomas Aquinas on the feast of Corpus Christi. It is entitled “O precious and wonderful banquet”. I felt I had to share it with those of you who don’t have access to the Divine Office on today's feast of Corpus Christi.

Well the reason is that the article was about a workshop that the Liturgical Department of the archdiocese held for Catholic laity.
