Trail Life USA takes part in Corpus Christi Procession

On May 31, Trailmen joined St. Joseph Parish in honoring Christ with a procession on the Feast of Corpus Christi. For approximately 800 years Catholics set aside the first Thursday after Trinity Sunday to acknowledge the awesome reality that Jesus meant what he said, “This is my Body” and “He who eats me will live because of me.” Along with the warning that, “Whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be answerable for the body and blood of the Lord.” The Feast of Corpus Christi and the procession with the Blessed Sacrament, not only acknowledges the sacrament, but in a very public way proclaims God’s presence in our world, in our lives, and reminds us that we are pilgrims intended for Heaven.

Prior to the procession, a Mass and first communion according to the old Rite was said. The sequence can be listened to here.

Dogma datur christianis, quod in carnem transit panis, et vinum in sanguinem. Quod non capis, quod non vides, animosa firmat fides, praeter rerum ordinem

Christians, let your faith grow stronger: what was bread is bread no longer, blood is here where once was wine. Touch and sight are here deceivers, mind and heart, be true believers: truth is here beneath the sign.

Sub diversis speciebus, signis tantum, et non rebus, latent res eximiae. Caro cibus, sanguis potus: manet tamen Christus totus sub utraque specie.

Bread and wine are here concealing what to faith God is revealing: outward signs his glory hide. Bread becomes its very Giver, wine redemption’s mighty river, flowing from the Savior’s side.

In all, there were eight Trailmen at Mass the the following procession during a Thursday meeting. Several Trailmen served at the altar, three carried banners in front of the procession, and two Trailmen had their first communion.

The Boy Scouts did much good.

Now they need to be replaced.

Thank God for Trail Life. The best alternative to the Boy Scouts. Ooops, my mistake, to the Scouts. Oy.

Just got home after a weekend with our 5-10 year old trail men. They took a hike, made water bottle rockets, shot BB guns, slept in tents, swam and Cooked hot dogs on sticks.

I’m exhausted.

Excellent. Us too.

Navigators and Adventurers are camping at a nearby state park group site. Our charter church is near a river that has a hiking trail that leads to the park. It’s about 5 miles. Older guys are backpacking all their gear.
