Corpus Christi in Paris

A Corpus Christi procession coming out of the church of St. Mary Magdalene in Paris, A.D. 1951. It is difficult to deny the charm of both girls and little altar boys. The nuns in characteristic, huge cornets are members of the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, popularly called Vincentians. The author of the photo is the famous French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson.
