The Corpus Christi procession of the Year of the Eucharist

on Wednesday, 01 June 2005. Posted in Pope Benedict XVI

On May 26, 2005, Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ (or Corpus Christi), Pope Benedict XVI led the traditional Eucharistic procession in the streets of Rome, with the monstrance installed on a truck (see picture). In his Apostolic Letter Mane nobiscum Domine for the Year of the Eucharist, Pope John Paul II had written:

"This year let us also celebrate with particular devotion the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, with its traditional procession. Our faith in the God who took flesh in order to become our companion along the way needs to be everywhere proclaimed, especially in our streets and homes, as an expression of our grateful love and as an inexhaustible source of blessings."
