It has long been the tradition of the one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church to celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi on the Thursday following Trinity Sunday. Thus, today we celebrate the traditional Feast of Corpus Christi.
In the past, Catholics would attend Holy Mass and the faithful would follow along in procession the Most Blessed Sacrament. Many priests, altar boys and religious would lead the procession, garbed in their most beautiful vestments, with traditional hymns and incense as accompaniments. I’ve been privileged to attend only one such procession…it was truly beautiful!
Here is a lovely video of a Corpus Christi procession which took place last June:
