Catholics took part in traditional Corpus Christi processions across Poland Thursday amid strict safety measures intended to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
People wearing cloth face coverings took to the streets June 11 to celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, one of the high points of the liturgical calendar.
As the sun shone across the country, girls who had recently made their first Holy Communions scattered rose petals before the Blessed Sacrament, which was carried by a priest under a processional canopy.
Preaching at a Corpus Christi Mass at Poznań Cathedral, Archbishop Stanisław Gądecki noted that the slogan for the Polish Church’s current pastoral program is “The Eucharist gives life.”
