Corpus Christi is a HUGE Feast Day! May 30, 2013

In spite of our bishops in the US having removed Corpus Christi from the list of Holy Days of Obligation in this country, historically and around the world, this has been a hugely important feast.  It ONLY commemorates the institution of the Blessed Sacrament, the Source and Summit of our Faith and THE Sacrament that really sustains us and helps us grow in sanctity on a day to day and week to week basis.

So let’s celebrate!  This is a glorious feast!  Via David Werling, a great sermon, from a priest whose voice you will recognize from so many sermons I post, on St. Juliana and the Feast of Corpus Christi:

And via Rorate Caeli, a video of Corpus Christi being done up right from back in the day:

Some other odds and ends. A Eucharistic, and, I think, Corpus Christi Procession from Dallas in the 50s:Procession

Beautiful pictures. Our church used to have a procession outside on the church complex but I guess someone complained of the heat because the last couple of years, it’s being held inside the church and from what the bulletin said it’s only at one Mass. So sad.

Just an FYI. There will be a procession tonight at 8:30pm, St. William the Confessor in Greenville, TX, after the 7pm Mass.

Thanks! I used to check the bulletin at St. William but had somehow gotten out of the habit. That’s great.
