Corpus Christi

2282_16Card. Hlond leads the Corpus Christi procession in the ruined Warsaw (1946). The thurifers walk very correctly – they are not turned backwards, but sideways to Sanctissimum. However the two angels with flowers are the best :) In Poland, despite the reforms of the Holy Week Vandal, the Octave of Corpus Christi is still celebrated: liturgically it is not any more, but in reality it is – because this is what Poland is.
