Corpus Christi 2019 Photopost (Part 2)

The second Corpus Christi photopost of this year includes photos from one church which reinstituted the procession, and another which held it for the first time in its history - Deo gratias! We also have an American church which makes carpets with religious designs in them to cover the processional route, similar to those we saw the other day from Assisi. Several churches are doing the procession with Benediction at altars set up along the processional route, another excellent sign of how this ceremony is seeing a real renaissance.

We are happy to accept more submissions, ( since there will certainly be at least two more posts in this series, and as always, we are profoundly grateful to everyone who sent these in.
