There's no place like home.

There's no place like home.
Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

This IS my body!

Yesterday was the blessed Feast of Corpus Christi.   A day for celebration and witness to the world of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.  It seemed that the Lord was pleased with our plans for his feast day for he sent a glorious day to spend showing the world our belief in and love for this sacrament of the love of Christ.
After the 11 O'clock mass everything was made ready.  The candles were lit, the altar servers, cross bearer, thrufers, and the men who would bear the canopy lined up.  Father reverently presented us Our Sacrificial Lord and the procession began to make it's way out of the church.  The people fell in line behind the young girls of the Sodality and the whole group was followed up by our choir singing the praises of Our Eucharistic Lord.  Up main street chanting the Litany of the Saints and praying the Holy Roasay of Our Lady we went bearing witness to those who drove by and those who took the time to pay attention.  The solemnity of the group seemed to say over and over, "Jesus is here, truly and in the flesh!" 
Then as we returned to the church and Our Blessed Lord was placed on the altar for us to adore the choir sang more hymns of praise for the Risen Lord.

We finished our celebration with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and a final hymn in praise of Our God who blessed us with the Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
How can anyone who witnessed such a joyful celebration of faith and belief in the Presence of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament not be left with a blessing in their own hearts?
