Corpus Christi Procession 2009
In the traditional procession with the Blessed Sacrament on the feast of Corpus Christi, we take our faith to the streets.  Eucharistic ministers lead the way.

Pope Benedict XVI has said, "The Eucharist is a public devotion that has nothing esoteric or exclusive about it... We are united over and above our differences of nationality, profession, social class, political ideas: we open ourselves to one another to become one in him." (Homily for Corpus Christi, 2008)

"We bring Christ, present under the sign of bread, onto the streets of our city. We entrust these streets, these homes, our daily life, to his goodness. May our streets be streets of Jesus! May our houses be homes for him and with him! May our life of every day be penetrated by his presence."  --Pope Benedict XVI

The Women of St. James Schola lead us in song during the procession:  "Jesus, here present, our living Savior, grant us your mercy, show us your favor."
