Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Corpus Christi procession..

" The Corpus Christi procession makes Christ present in towns and cities throughout the world. But his presence cannot be limited to just one day, a noise you hear and then forget. It should remind us that we have to discover our Lord in our ordinary everyday activity. Side by side with this solemn procession, there is the simple, silent procession of the ordinary life of each Christian. He is a man among men, who by good fortune has received the faith and the divine commission to act so that he renews the message of our Lord on earth. We are not without defects; we make mistakes and commit sins. But God is with us and we must make ourselves ready to be used by him, so that he can continue to walk among men." St. JoseMaria, Christ Is Passing By, 156

On Sunday, we went to St. Hewigs, a beautiful church downtown for the feast of Corpus Christi, it was the only Church in our area that was doing a procession with 3 alters outside for this Beautiful feast! It was very beautiful and moving. Thu, there were very few families attending such a beautiful tradition and expression of ones true love... Our Lord!

One of the alters outside in front of Our Blessed Mother.
Bring Our Lord back home into the church!

Here father is carrying the Most Blessed Lord being protected.

Here is Princess Girl and Trainboy looking on during the stop at the alter of Our Lady.

The children getting ready for the procession of Corpus Christi! It sure was a beautiful day with the blue sky and cool weather!

Its a Mexican tradition that children dress in custom outfits that you would see for the

Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
