A Memorable Corpus Christi Procession

The Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite celebrating the external solemnity of Corpus Christi
We walked in procession in the midst of the poorer sections of the parish
The Lord is passing by!
The rain poured heavily in the middle of the procession
Everybody was wet (including the priest)...everybody except the Lord.
They all knelt on the wet pavement
Such a wonderful manifestation of Faith
The children sang the praises of the Lord!
In the middle of the procession, the rain poured heavily. No one scampered for shelter. Everybody continued to walk and sing to the Blessed Sacrament. Imagine the choir singing the Te Deum in the rain! The only concern for everyone was to keep the Blessed Sacrament dry. At Benediction, everybody knelt on the wet pavement. Everyone was wet...including the priest...everyone except the Lord. It was truly a manifestation of great faith...indeed, a procession befitting the YEAR OF FAITH!
