La Fête-Dieu 2020

Corpus Christi according to the Use of Sarum. The proper is identical to that in the Roman missal. I give a few reflections on the joy of La Fête-Dieu in French or Fronleichnam in German as still celebrated in towns in Switzerland and southern Germany to this day, where this procession unites with the civic life of the community. It reflects our joy to be Christians. Also, the Blessed Sacrament and the Church are one and cannot be divided, even if the Host is broken into an infinite number of pieces. So with the Church, our communion in Christ before being a political or bureaucratic institution.

I was wearing my oldest vestments, French and probably from the late eighteenth century, but in poor condition. This is regrettable because the cloth has a fine design on it.
