Corpus Christi, Feast of 

The BCP provides a proper collect and readings for the celebration "Of the Holy Eucharist" among the "Various Occasions" for optional use. This service is a commemoration of the institution of the eucharist. It may be celebrated at any time, subject to the rules set forth in the calendar of the church year. A Prayer Book rubric notes that this celebration is especially suitable for Thursdays. The collect for this celebration is a revised version of the collect composed by St. Thomas Aquinas (c. 1225-1274) for the Feast of Corpus Christi (BCP, p. 252). The BCP provides another version of this prayer for use "After Receiving Communion" (p. 834).
