The West End Corpus Christi procession has grown in recent years
This Sunday the Church celebrates the great solemnity of Corpus Christi. It is an occasion for us to celebrate the beauty and truth of the Eucharist; the real body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The solemnity is often marked by a procession led by the Blessed Sacrament and Catholics around the country are encouraged to join in. In Glasgow the West End Corpus Christi Procession has become increasingly popular in recent years with hundreds participating. This year the procession will leave from the University of Glasgow and travel to St Peter's, Partick. Events start at 11.30am with Holy Mass in the University's Turnbull Hall.
If you are unable to attend one of the larger processions please try to join in one in your local area. Your parish might even be having one so check your bulletin or ask your parish priest.
The importance of the Eucharist cannot be overstated. It is the centre of our faith. It is Jesus, truly present among us. Please try to support a Corpus Christi procession in your area this Sunday, and encourage others to do the same. Let us be witnesses to our faith and let us be witnesses to Christ crucified, Christ risen, and Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament.
