The Solemnity of Corpus Christi




We've only been to one Eucharistic procession before, so we are really looking forward to attending tomorrow's, which should be lovely! As a little girl, St. Therese used to love walking in them, throwing rose petals at the monstrance. She would rejoice when one of her petals would hit the monstrance! I think every parish should have a Eucharistic procession on the Feast of Corpus Christi. They are so authentically Catholic!

I highly recommend families attend one tomorrow, if possible. Your children will learn so much about the beauty and majesty of this glorious feast! I realize that, sadly, so many parishes don't offer them.  Also, don't forget that our Holy Father Pope Francis has established a worldwide Adoration tomorrow in celebration at 5:00 Rome time.


"Jesus Christ instituted this Sacrament to give us a sign of the great love He has for us and to give us adequate nourishment for our souls."

—St. John Bosco, patron of youth
