Corpus Christi 2019 Photopost (Part 5)

With a few exceptions, we publish photopost contributions in the order in which they are received, so it’s just by chance that four of the seven churches featured in this year’s final Corpus Christi post are run by the Fraternity of St Peter. This is first year in which we have reached five posts for Corpus, with over 250 photos from almost 40 different churches, yet another very encouraging sign of the continuing revival this most emblematically Catholic of traditions.

This is also the 300th photopost which we have published since Ben first created the label “photopost” in August of 2013. (To be precise, it is the 300th time we have used the label; our labelling of posts is not completely regular, and we have certainly had far more than that.) I would therefore like to reiterate our gratitude to everyone who has sent in photos of their liturgies over the nearly 14 years of NLM’s existence; your contributions inspire people throughout the Church to better liturgical practice, and to do the important work of evangelizing through beauty!

This year, the procession stopped at two nearby churches, Santa Maria della Quercia and the church of the Brigittine Sisters in Piazza Farnese, for Benediction; here we see the clergy at the former waving thuribles at the door of the church as the Blessed Sacrament arrives, in keeping with an old Italian custom.
