The Corpus Christi procession toured the Center

After the procession there was mass in San Ponciano / R. Acosta

The Corpus Christi procession, an expression of special gravitation in the Catholic cult, went through the streets of the City yesterday in its traditional format of demonstration of faith.

Now far from the restrictions due to the pandemic, the procession began in the “Nuestra Señora de La Merced” parish, located on Calle 11 between 45 and 46. The sun was still tempering the cold wind from the south sector a little when a column of parishioners began the procession towards the “Basílica San Ponciano”, located at 48 between 5 and diagonal 80.

The organization of the demonstration then invited “all Catholic parishioners to join in the traditional procession through the streets of the City with the Blessed Sacrament.”

After crossing through the Microcentro, the column stopped in front of the Basilica.

The activity concluded with the development of a mass.

“Corpus Christi is the festival that reminds us that Jesus is really present in the sacrament of consecrated bread,” the organization explained, adding that “this festival of faith has been celebrated throughout the world since the Middle Ages.”
