Today in most parts of the world, though not in the United States, it is the celebration of Corpus Christi. In some places, it is even a Holy Day of Obligation. Here is a list of some past articles on Corpus Christi and the Eucharist:


The Solemnity of Corpus Christi has 3 purposes:

1) To honor Our Lord, who is truly present in the Holy Eucharist
2) To instruct others on the faith, mystery, and devotion concerning the Holy Eucharist
3) To show our appreciate for the great gift of the Holy Eucharist

Great blog by the way.
I'm an SSPX Catholic and hope and pray that one day the SSPX and the Vatican can be fully reunited again.

I just wanted to add to your post that today in the SSPX Priories at those chapels around the world by our priests and Bishops, according to the 1962 Roman Missal. They hold the Mass and then the procession.

Then next week we are having our youngsters (around 7 years old) take their first communion.

Take care, keep fighting the good fight.

I'll never understand why so many feast days have been downgraded (in the U.S.). :(

I didn't know this. I was wondering why the Corpus Christi Mass was being celebrated by the Holy Father today.

In some places, like Poland, it's even a civic holiday too.
