The 2012 Corpus Christi procession will be different as compared to the previous years. The solemnity will begin with the Eucharist (mass) at 6 pm in the Baruk followed by the Corpus Christi procession at approximately 7.15 pm.
The procession will begin from St Ann Baruk to the junction of Giant Supermarket and back to St Ann Baruk again. Upon returning, there will be Benediction in the baruk and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for about 15 minutes.
There will be only one Mass on 10/6/2012 (Sunday) at 7.30 am so that parishioners from the 14 housing Estates and nearby Villages can participate in the event. This event is a demonstration of our faith and identity as the Body of Christ and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ is also known as the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, which translates from Latin to "Body of Christ."
This feast originated in France in the mid-thirteenth century and was extended to the whole Church by Pope Urban IV in 1264.
This feast calls us to focus on two manifestations of the Body of Christ, the Holy Eucharist and the Church. The primary purpose of this feast is to focus our attention on the Eucharist.
At every Mass our attention is called to the Eucharist and the Real Presence of Christ in it. The secondary focus of this feast is upon the Body of Christ as it is present in the Church. The Church is called the Body of Christ because of the intimate communion which Jesus shares with his disciples. He expresses this in the gospels by using the metaphor of a body in which He is the head. This image helps keep in focus both the unity and the diversity of the Church.
The Feast of Corpus Christi is commonly used as an opportunity for public Eucharistic processions, which serves as a sign of common faith and adoration. Our worship of Jesus in His Body and Blood calls us to offer to God our Father a pledge of undivided love and an offering of ourselves to the service of others.
