Father Z and Old Time Religion: I affirm my subjugation to Christ Victor, God and King, triumphant over death, vanquisher of hell and of my sins.

In 1246, Robert of Thourotte, Bishop of Liège, Belgium, had instituted in his diocese the feast now known as Corpus Christi at the request of an Augustinian nun Juliana of Cornillon, who composed an office for it. In 1264, Pope Urban IV ordered the feast of the Body of Christ to be celebrated as a holy day of obligation for the universal Church on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday and accepted the texts by the Angelic Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas, for the Mass and Office.
