Corpus Christi is a Latin word meaning the body of Christ. It refers to the Western Church's feast held on the Thursday that falls after Trinity Sunday. The feast dates back to 1924 and commemorates the foundation of the Eucharist's sacrament.

Corpus Christi can refer to a number of other things including the Blessed Sacrament.

Corpus Christi may also refer to Blessed Sacrament which is a name given to the host and wine that the sacrament of Eucharist has consecrated.
