Photopost Request: Corpus Christi 2019

Our next major photopost will be for Corpus Christi, which is celebrated either on Thursday, June 20, or Sunday, June 23. Please send your photos (whether of the Ordinary or Extraordinary Form) to for inclusion. Of course, we are especially glad to include pictures of Eucharistic Processions, one of the major features of this feast, but also those of celebrations in other rites, as well as Vespers and other parts of the Office. Please be sure to include the name and location of the church, and always feel free to add any other information you think important.

After several years in which we received enough submissions to make three separate posts, last year we got up to four, plus two special posts – let’s keep this tradition going, as we continue the important work of evangelizing through beauty!

From our first Corpus Christi photopost of last year: the Eucharistic Procession at Bl. Charles de Foucault Monastery in La Marsa, Tunisia.
From the second post: expert young thurifers at the church of St Catherine of Siena in Columbus, Ohio.
From the third post: the canopy carried over the Blessed Sacrament at the Collegiate Church of St Just, home of the FSSP’s apostolate in Lyon, France.
From the fourth post: frequent contributor Arrys Ortañez outdoes himself with this beautiful photo of the Eucharistic Procession at Holy Innocents in New York City.
From a post on the Ambrosian Rite celebration of Corpus Christi: Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament after Mass at Santa Maria della Consolazione, with the classic Ambrosian cylindrical monstrance, and red vestments, which are used from Pentecost to the feast of the cathedral’s dedication on the third Sunday of October.
From a post on the Eucharistic Procession at Trinità dei Pellegrini, the FSSP church in Rome: the sacristan of the nearby church of Santa Maria della Quercia, following an old Italian custom, waves a thurible at the door of his church as the Blessed Sacrament passes by.
