Archdiocesan Corpus Christi Procession, this Sunday, June 19th, 2022

following Noon Mass.  Please come!

This Sunday on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, which is appropriately Father’s Day as well, we are offered the opportunity to recognize Christ and God the Father as well. In the Gospel of John Chapter 14 Jesus, who by the power of the Holy Spirit do we find wholly body, blood, soul, and divinity in the Eucharist, tells us;

Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth* and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.b If you know me, then you will also know my Father.* From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

This is not merely the chance to participate in the Eucharistic Revival, a 3-year process initiated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to renew our devotion to and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. A process that begins with the inaugural event of the Eucharistic Revival will be a public procession with the Blessed Sacrament on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, June 19, 2022.

Through Jesus, this is a chance to celebrate the Father, our Creator, as well. What kind of children would we be, were we to ignore the one who gives us life. The depth and profoundness of the Eucharist is beyond comprehension. Simply being there and giving witness to Christ can speak volumes to not only our own hearts but to the hearts of this entire community.

Therefore, all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Louisville have been invited to participate in this Archdiocesan procession at the Cathedral of the Assumption which begins immediately following the Sunday noon Mass. The procession will proceed through several blocks of downtown Louisville. Will be followed by a time of adoration and prayer in the Cathedral and will conclude with Benediction at 3 pm, followed by an ice cream reception.
