Lucia Corpus Christi

Tomorrow in NZ, we celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi (Body and Blood of Christ). Normally it would be on a Thursday, but as with many of our important feast days, it has been moved to Sunday.

In some countries of the world, such a procession as shown above in Rome would be impossible to do. Therefore, I consider it a great sign of hope that the city of St. Petersburg in Russia will allow the first Corpus Christi procession to take place there since the Russian Revolution.

Yes, In Spain Thursday 23-June was a public holiday, being Festividad del Corpus Christi. I would say 99% of Madrid was shut down, only a few service stations and restaurants open. They really know how to respect a day off here. Farrar would have a fit I'm sure. "Bwahaha, choice, choice!"...
