A Month of Sundays - Part II

Today we continue with our month of Sunday mini-series. This past Sunday the Church celebrated Corpus Christi.

What does that mean Cloë? It sounds like another language.

Very good Tallulah. Corpus Christi is Latin, an ancient language that they spoke in Rome during the time of Jesus. It is not really spoken anywhere these days. Corpus Christi literally mean Body of Christ.

On this particular Sunday we once again remind ourselves that Jesus is really present in the bread and the wine. Sometimes after this particular Mass the people will have a procession of the Blessed Sacrament, generally displayed in a monstrance.

What is a procession Cloë?

It's kind of like a parade. Jesus in the bread is at the front of the procession and all the people follow. It's a way of showing people what we believe in.

And what about a monstrance?

That is the special holder that they put the bread in.

Here is the procession that happened in Rome on the weekend.


And here is a craft idea from Catholic Inspired to help you remember that when you receive communion you are actually receiving Jesus in your hand!

That is totally awesome Cloë!

It sure is.

Finally here are two videos of us at the cottage this weekend. There were tons of mosquitoes but we had fun, especially at the beach.
