Corpus Christi in Heiligenkreuz

Below are some pictures of the Corpus Christi procession in Heiligenkreuz today. In his sermon the Abbot mentioned that the  Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Our Lord was extended to the universal Church exactly 750 years ago by Pope Urban IV. The two saints most associated with the feast, the Norbertine canoness St. Juliana of Liège (whose visions inspired its institution), and St. Thomas Aquinas (who composed the liturgical texts), both died in Cistercian abbeys; St. Juliana in Fosses-la-Ville, and St. Thomas (of course) at Fossanova.
