words used while distributing holy communion

Question from Marie on 4/11/2008:

At a neighboring parish, the priest and extraordinary ministers say "Life of Christ" before placing the host into the recitpient's hand. Is this allowed?

Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 4/12/2008:
This is illicit. The proper words are, "The Body of Christ."
