The Feast of Corpus Christi (Latin for Body of Christ), also known as Corpus Domini, is a Latin Rite liturgical solemnity celebrating the tradition and belief in the body and blood of Jesus Christ and his Real Presence in the Eucharist. It emphasizes the joy of the institution of theEucharist, which was observed on Holy Thursday in the somber atmosphere of the nearness of Good Friday. In the present Roman Missal, the feast is designated the solemnity of The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. It is also celebrated in some Anglican, Lutheran, and Old Catholic Churches that hold similar beliefs regarding the Real Presence.

These plays are still reenacted today.

In this play four soldiers are on a mission to hang Jesus. They talk about how Jesus claims he is King. They claim that he deserves to be crucified for thinking he is so great and mighty. They berate and scorn him. These soldiers have the task of carrying the cross with Jesus on it over the hill where they leave him to die. They complain and complain and complain. The cross is heavy, Its hurting my back, etc. After completing their duty, they go on with their lives and Jesus dies, but not before he asks God to forgive them.
