St. Charles Corpus Christi Procession

Yesterday afternoon, I attended the Corpus Christi Procession in St. Charles.  It started at St. Charles Borromeo, then went to the Academy of the Sacred Heart and then to St. Peter.

I find it amazingly coincidental that at the same time as the Pride Parade, Catholics were showing a different kind of pride by processing in behind the Eucharist.

The procession started with To Jesus Christ Our Sovereign King.  Then Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!  Then Panga Lingua, which was repeated at every stop.  (Somebody is going to have to go over how to pronounce all the words with me....).

As we processed, we sang Hail Holy Queen.

At the Academy of the Sacred Heart, we sang Humbly We Adore Thee

As we processed we sang All Praise and Glad Thanksgiving and Immaculate Mary.

At St. Peter we sang Pan de Vida, O Saving Victim, Tantum Ergo, and Holy God We Praise Thy Name.

I find it ironic that there were no modern songs....  Pan de Vida was likely included because of the large Spanish-speaking population.

  1. I can't think of any modern songs that would be appropriate for a Eucharistic procession - can you?
