Corpus Christi: a musical meditation
(Vatican Radio) On Thursday, 4th of June 2015, Feast of Corpus Christi Pope Francis is scheduled to travel across town to celebrate Holy Mass on the parvis of his Cathedral, Saint John Lateran.
Following Mass, he will lead the traditional Corpus Christi procession from there to the nearby Basilica of Saint Mary Major, just over a mile away.
On this occasion, as in many other such Corpus Christi processions across the world, the monstrance with the Blessed Sacrament will be borne high for all to see in adoration and prayer.
To mark this yearly occasion we share with you a musical meditation which focuses on the Fifth Mystery of Light: ‘The Institution of the Eucharist’.
Among the many Eucharistic texts set to music chosen for this meditation by our music historian Monsignor Philip Whitmore is ‘O Sacrum Convivium’.
Listen to a musical meditation which focuses on the V Mystery of Light presented by Monsignor Philip Whitmore and produced by Veronica Scarisbrick:
