I've been discovering a lot of (profanities, probably) employing this word. Not enough of them to see the system, unfortunately Even Context Reverso is not of much help.

For instance: en la quinta hostia sounds like out there in the sticks, if not worse.

I'd love to have a short list of set expressions employing the subj, with commentaries and etymology, if possible
