Corpus Christi Sunday

Both these images
were taken last year
on the Feast of Corpus Christi.
To see what Pope Francis had to say
at his Mass celebration today, click

hymn: "O Saving Host" or "O Salutaris Hostia"

O saving Victim, opening wide,
The gate of heaven to man below!
Our foes press on from every side;
Thine aid supply, thy strength bestow.

To Thy great name by endless praise,
Immortal Godhead, one in Three;
Oh, grant us endless length of days,
In our true native land with Thee. Amen


  1. A number of years ago, my husband and I were in Cinque Terra Italy on the feast of Corpus Christi. Mass was really special there - I'll never forget it. No vehicular traffic is allowed in these five villages. The sidewalks were covered in flower petals in fantastic designs. The priest and acolytes processed outside - it was magical.

  2. indeed, it sounds magical! did you photograph any of it? I can imagine the devotion one must have to do those floral designs.


Bless you for your comments.
