Corpus Domini

 

Il Corpus Domini 
di Cosimo Rizzo

Domenica 25 maggio si e` celebrata la Festa del Corpus Domini,
dopo la SS. Messa e` stato portato in processione, per le vie del paese, 
L’Ostensorio con il SS. Sacramento. Aprivano la processione i Bambini che
dovranno fare la prima Comunione, seguiti dal gruppo di preghiera 
del Sacro Cuore di Gesu, e da una rappresentanza di Confratelli.
Durante la processione il Parroco ed i fedeli si sono soffermati
nei vari punti dove erano stati allestiti, come di tradizione,
gli Altarini per fare la benedizione, mentre venivano lanciati fiori 
in segno di gioia. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Feast of “Corpus” Domini

 By: Cosimo Rizzo
Translated by: Carmela Tucci

Note:

The Feast of Corpus Christi is a great recollection of the love and devotion the Church associates to this Sacrament.  Every year sixty days after Easter the Church celebrates “Corpus Domini”.  This is a religious solemnity in honour of the Eucharist (the body) – corpus – of Christ in the sacramental sign of bread.  Eucharistic bread is borne through the city streets in a glass container known as a 'monstrance', which allows people to see the consecrated bread wafer. The Eucharist in a monstrance is always under special umbrella, which is covered by a baldachin (a portable canopy). The umbrella, the baldachin, and the priests clothing are all made of a rich cloth of gold. Citizens adorn the facades of  their houses before the procession passes with tapestries, ornamental hangings, flowers and garlands and prepare small altars.

 

On Sunday Mary 25, 2008 the Feast of “Corpus Domini” was celebrated immediately following Holy mass. A procession displaying the Holy Sacrament of the Corpus Domini took place throughout the streets of the village.  The children who would be receiving the sacrament of First Holy Communion in the next few months led the procession.  They were followed by a group who lead prayers about The Sacred Heart of Jesus, and then a representation of members of a confraternity of the Our Lady of the Rosary Church in the village.  During the procession the Pastor and the faithful stopped in various locations along the procession route, where small altars had been erected, as is the tradition.  Altars were blessed, while flowers were thrown as a sign of joy and happiness.
