While US Catholics celebrated the Feast of Corpus Christi yesterday, many of the world’s faithful observed the feast on Thursday of last week, some in rather dramatic fashion, as shown in this lovely slideshow of Corpus Christi celebrations around the globe. Take a look! Unfortunately the description of the Eucharist used in the photo captions — “the transformation of the body and blood of Christ into bread and wine” — gets it backwards.
