The Roman Catholic Church will celebrate tomorrow the Solemnity of Corpus Christi in commemoration of the institution by Jesus Christ of the Holy Eucharist to His apostles during the Last Supper.
In Rome, Italy, the Holy Father Pope Francis will lead the traditional public procession of the Blessed Sacrament from St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City to the streets of Rome. Bishops from across the world traditionally join the Holy Father during the hour-long Eucharistic adoration.
In the country, Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle will lead the Corpus Christi holy mass at the Santa Cruz Parish in Manila at 3 p.m. The celebration coincides with the declaration of the church as the Archdiocesan Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament.
The Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will be held at 2 p.m. A solemn procession from the church to the Manila Cathedral in Intramuros, Manila will be held at 4 p.m.
