Also known as Corpus Christi.  I was supposed to read at Mass this morning (sorry, Bill!), but realized last night that if I didn’t go to TLM today, and went as usual on Sunday, I would completely miss this great Feast! 

Anyone want to join me in praying – we want our Holy Days back!  Let us have this great witness to our Faith back, instead of rolling these great Feasts into Sunday!  Back in the day, there would frequently be great processions through city streets of our Blessed Lord in the Eucharist.  What a brilliant witness, what a great gift to bring to others!  We could literally bring the our True, Real Lord into the presence of an increasingly pagan culture!  People who have never seen Jesus before could see Him in the Blessed Sacrament!  We can show people of other faiths how much we love our Lord, and how literal His Presence is in our Church!  How can we not be doing this anymore?!?

Such processions still occur today, but far too rarely:

Look at that cloud of incense!  I love it!  A ‘sweet fragrance to the Lord’!

Yes, more processions! So glad I belong to an FSSP parish where we will have a procession tonight. In fact I just spent the morning with the Youth Group picking up all the trash along the route we’ll be taking tonight. I’ve been looking forward to this procession all week! Such an amazing witness to an unbelieving world.
