The Corpus Christi Procession: a Catholic Tradition

Processing through the community with the Blessed Sacrament on the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ is a venerable Church tradition. The procession is an outward demonstration of Catholic faith and belief in the real presence of the risen Christ, under the appearance of the Consecrated Host.

In his Apostolic Letter Mane nobiscum Domine, Pope John Paul II urged all Catholics to participate in Corpus Christi processions as a public profession of their faith in the real presence of Christ in the Holy Sacrament.

Fr Danner and the Iowa State Council encourage local council leaders with their Chaplain’s support to organize a Corpus Christi Procession. Be certain to observe all ritual / liturgical requirements. Involve your council and your assembly; invite families to participate.

However small or large this demonstration of a Knight’s love of and respect for the Eucharist is a tremendous witness to his family and to his parish. It will have deep and lasting effects on their faith lives.

 Why not Walk with Jesus through the streets of your town?
