The Procession of the Blessed Sacrament

"By sermons preached at meetings and in churches, by public adoration of the Blessed Sacrament exposed and by public processions, men unite in paying homage to Christ, whom God has given them for their King. It is by a divine inspiration that the people of Christ bring forth Jesus from His silent hiding place in the church and carry Him in triumph through the streets of the city, so that He whom men refused to receive when He came unto His own, may now receive in full His kingly rights."

Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas (December 11, 1925), 26.
