Universal Date

Things that make me smile and do a little jig (it really doesn't take much to make me happy). From Fr. Stephanos' 'blog Me monk. Me meander.
The Solemnity of "Corpus Christi...": the Most Holy Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ

My monastery celebrates it on the Church's universal date, that is, on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday. That's the day after tomorrow.

We don't transfer it to the following Sunday.

In the meantime, our Universal Shepherd, Pope Benedict XVI will be celebrating Mass in Rome followed by a Eucharistic Procession. Follow along on EWTN starting at 1 PM EDT today.
