Feast of Corpus Christi

This month we celebrate the feast day of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Why do we celebrate Corpus Christi on Sunday and the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on Friday? Again this its because this is what Our Blessed Lord specifically requested. Through His servant Saint Margaret Mary He requested a feast day in honor of the Sacred Heart, within the octave of the feast day of Corpus Christi, because He wanted to spot light, high light, focus, emphasize, dramatize: the Blessed Sacrament is the Sacred Heart of Jesus living and loving in our midst today!  ~ Fr. John Hardon, Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration

  1. How wonderful! No procession for our parish this year. I keep waiting but it never happens. :( Our first parish as a married couple was called Corpus Christi and we processed through the whole surrounding neighborhood and even had a trumpeter with us... definitely missing that.
