    Photos of the traditional religious procession in Detroit were widely shared on social media Maybe it was the classic sunglasses, the skinny jeans or the flocculent mustache. Maybe it was the vintage-style religious art, the men in embellished uniforms, or what looks like incense rising from the streets. Whatever it was, a photo of a religious procession with a circa-1940’s aesthetic recently fascinated Catholics, who shared it on social media and other places around the internet. Except the photo of a St. Joseph’s procession on the streets of Detroit wasn’t taken in 1945. It was taken last week. “I guess...

    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...

                  I’d like to begin a series on the Mass explaining the meaning and history of what we do each Sunday. It is amazing how little Catholics know about or reflect upon what we do every Sunday. This is an attempt to add insight and understanding to our celebration of the Sacred liturgy.The Procession and entrance song -  Something very remarkable happens at the beginning of every Mass. It is so normal to us that we hardly think of it. As the priest is ready in the back of Church to begin the Mass the congregation suddenly comes to its...

    Pope Benedict leads Corpus Christi procession in Rome on June 7, 2012. Rome, Italy, Jun 7, 2012 / 05:35 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Benedict XVI says the Second Vatican Council did not reject Eucharistic adoration outside of Mass, including the Corpus Christi procession that he led this evening in Rome. “One unilateral interpretation of the Second Vatican Council has penalized this dimension, restricting in practice the Eucharist to the moment of celebration,” the Pope said during his homily for the Feast of Corpus Christi on June 7. “In this case, the accentuation placed on the celebration of the Eucharist acted...

    McALLEN — Hidalgo County should ban funeral processions, county District Attorney Rene Guerra said Thursday. A fatal crash during a funeral procession Wednesday has led to questions about the safety of the motorcades, where law enforcement officers guide traffic by blocking intersections. A Hidalgo County Precinct 2 constable’s deputy hit and killed an Alamo woman Wednesday when the deputy’s cruiser “t-boned” the vehicle she was traveling in. Guerra said he’s been concerned about funeral processions for years now, but Wednesday’s crash has revived the debate and sharpened his concerns. “I was afraid that what happened yesterday would happen,” he said....

    Well, the couple who launched this terrific wedding video are speaking out about their exuberant nuptial boogie. They popped up a couple days ago on TODAY: Most couples wait until the reception before breaking out into the Funky Chicken on their wedding day, but Kevin Heinz and Jill Peterson figured, why wait to unleash their unbridled joy? The 28-year-olds floored their wedding guests by having their whole bridal party — including seven bridesmaids, five groomsmen and four ushers — boogie down the aisle in a choreographed dance more at home in a Broadway musical than in a somber church. Groomsmen...

    ROME, AUG. 22, 2006 (Zenit.org).- Answered by Father Edward McNamara, professor of liturgy at the Regina Apostolorum university. Q: It is my understanding that the choir should be located where visible to the congregation, but not so as to distract from the Mass itself. In our church the organ, organist (and music director) along with the entire choir are up in the sanctuary with the main altar at which Mass is celebrated. They are at the same level and above the altar just slightly to the left as the congregation faces the altar. The choir dresses in white-cassock style robes...

    The funeral procession of slain settler and Kahaneh activist Netanel Ozeri, who was killed in a terrorist attack in his home on an illegal outpost near the West Bank town of Hebron Friday, is making its way to Jerusalem at this time, after earlier uncertainty concerning the spot of his burial resulted in scuffles between rioting settlers and police. According to Israel Radio, sources close to the Ozeri family said Netanel's body is set to be delivered to Jerusalem's Hara'ayon Hayehudi yeshiva. They did not elaborate as to his burial arrangements. Ozeri widow, Livnat, took his body from Hebron, where...
