Si Racha, Thailand, Jun 4, 2013 / 15:12 pm
In a spirit of jubilation and fervor, Catholics in Thailand celebrated the feast of Corpus Christi with Eucharistic adoration and processions.
The solemn liturgical celebrations at the Sacred Heart Church in Sriracha drew large crowds, despite heavy rain showers. Mass was followed with traditional floral processions and adoration to celebrate the real presence of Christ's body and blood in the Eucharist.
In his homily, Bishop Silvio Siripong Chartsri of Chantaburi stressed that the Eucharist empowers and transforms lives in order for the faithful to be true disciples, sharing in the communion of Christ.
Bishop Silvio drew his homily from the words of Pope Francis, who spoke before leading a Corpus Christi procession.
