Corpus Christi

Go Oxford!!

I love the Feast of Corpus Christi, which takes place on the first Thursday or Sunday after Trinity Sunday, because I believe Christ is truly present in the Sacrament of the Altar and should therefore be celebrated and reverenced. Or more poetically, "blessed, hallowed, praised and adored." 


Spain is famous for its Corpus Christi devotions, perhaps especially in Toledo, the See of that country's Primate. But other countries celebrate the Feast well; even church-hating England, home of the celebrity atheist club and associated new world order secularists, manages to put on a decent Eucharistic procession or two. I like the one in Oxford, predictably enough.


I'm surprised they haven't got 'round to banning Christian processions in England yet, but they're still legal, apparently. They're legal here in Texas too, where we even have a town named after the Blessed Sacrament and its Feast, Corpus Christi.

I have not been to the city of Corpus Christi. 

God bless,

It's good to see that the feast is making a comeback of sorts and the whole "The Eucharist is supposed to be eaten, not looked at" ridiculousness seems to be dying off.

Thank you, Infidel, for making that point. Liturgists, such pinheads.
