Praise be to Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar

The Feast of Corpus Christi was first celebrated in the Diocese of Liege in 1247 to honor Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Later it was promulgated by Pope Urban IV and Pope Clement V. Today, the Corpus Christi procession is returning. In our little town of Woodstock today, there was a procession after the noon Mass. For several years, St. John the Baptist has had a procession in Front Royal.  When our oldest was teaching in Spain she often spoke about the religious processions there and the beautiful floats made from flowers that honored Jesus and the saints. What a blessing when the witness to our faith takes to the streets.
