A parishioner from Dayton’s Emmanuel Church sends me this “promo” video for this weekend’s procession to mark the Feast of Corpus Christi, which will take place Saturday at 5:15, rain or shine. Clocking in at just over 6 minutes, it features a wonderful catechesis on the Real Presence from Emmanuel’s pastor and a look at the creation of the parish’s unique sidewalk icons along the route of the procession. Check it out:
Despite the doctrinal fuzziness about the Real Presence still emanating from certain quarters in the AOC, Corpus Christi processions have been on the rise in recent years. Feel free to use the comment box to highlight other similar efforts. Nearby St. Cecilia parish in Cincinnati’s Oakley neighborhood will have its annual procession led by pastor Fr. Jamie Weber at the end of the 10 am Mass on Sunday.
