Last Sunday, May 25, the Traditional Latin Mass community at the Parish of the Lord of Divine Mercy marked Corpus Christi with a Missa Cantata followed by a Procession with the Blessed Sacrament. The procession started around four in the afternoon and went through mostly empty streets as the little crowd of some 80 people sang hymns to the Eucharist and the Sacred Heart. The procession ended in one of the rooms of the parish hall (see the last picture), where Benediction was held.
Even as the Traditional Latin Mass community had its Eucharistic Procession, my own home parish cancelled its Corpus Christi procession for the first time that I can remember. Pray for the Church in the Philippines, which is increasingly becoming a battleground between traditional piety and liberal theology.
