Around the early 1200s, Saint Juliana of
Mont Cornillon received a vision concerning this feast at a young age.
St. Juliana always had a strong devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. In
her visition she saw the Church under the appearance of the full moon.
One large, dark spot was in the moon - symbolic of the absence of a
solemnity to honor the Holy Eucharist. St. Juliana became an Augustinian
nun in Liége, France, in 1206. Corpus Christi became a feast for the
Diocese of Liege in 1246, and later in 1312 Corpus Christi became a
mandatory feast in the Roman Catholic Church
Eucharistic processions. These processions are endowed with indulgences by Popes Martin V and Eugene IV.
