The Corpus Christi tradition is still celebrated today in many Catholic communities in the US and around the world. In Spain, in the great city of Toledo this celebration is celebrated in grandeur style like no other. The streets and houses are decorated with flower arrangements, garlands, tapestry, religious figures and altars. The procession is so beautiful. It reminds us of the devotion and love we Catholics have for God, Christ and the Holy Spirit, all one. Sadly our younger generations know little about this tradition. This tradition was a unifying event that brought Catholics together. Thank you for the article. Viva Cristo Rey.

I would tend to agree with you as I was raised a Catholic and the doctrines and traditions of the Church are so beautiful that they make me weep with joy. However, given the repeated, multiple instances of priests taking liberties with young boys, violating them and abusing them over and over again, I now feel it is time to let go and start afresh with something new. That is why I have been visiting different Churches lately and I've had my eyes opened. I never knew that some religions let you use condoms, pursue riches and fame and even take the HC yourself without the priest shoving it down your throat. So I wish you the best but I hope you'll change your mind and find a new faith like me.

I am happy for you but I am very blessed being Catholic. All I need is the love and mercy of my Lord and nothing else.
