Corpus Christi 2019

Corpus Christi procession at FSSP South Bend

On Thursday, June 20th and Sunday, June 23rd, 2019, parishes throughout the world celebrated Corpus Christi, the great feast of the Most Blessed Sacrament. The feast falls on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday, but is often commemorated as an External Solemnity on the following Sunday. One of the central features of the liturgy of this day is a beautiful procession after Mass with the Blessed Sacrament enthroned in the monstrance, the route traditionally including several altars set up along the way at which the procession halts and the Blessed Sacrament is adored. And so today we bring you, over 5 states, 5 countries and 5 time zones, the celebrations of the Sacrament that unites and transcends all three. +

Hic est panis, qui de cœlo descéndit. Non sicut manducavérunt patres vestri manna, et mórtui sunt. Qui mandúcat hunc panem, vivet in ætérnum.

This is the bread that has come down from heaven; not as your fathers ate the manna, and died. He who eats this bread shall live forever.

– John 6:58 (from the Gospel for the feast of Corpus Christi)

Some parishes create elaborate carpets of dyed wood chips or flowers for the Corpus Christi procession. Dayton’s are real masterpieces.
