A church near our home (not our parish) hosted a Corpus Christi procession today, and it was absolutely lovely (and also very hot...those poor priests in their vestments!). We haven't been to one since we lived in South Bend, so this was the first one for the girls (at least, ex-utero).
The procession wound through the park, the neighborhoods, the streets...it was such a beautiful way to witness to our love for and belief in the Eucharistic presence.

A Cute Story About Therese and the Eucharist (major flashback pictures! Maria does this, too, now...she gets sooo excited when the bells are rung at consecration and she starts shouting, "Je-us! Je-us!" and pointing up at the altar. And her little face lights up.)
