Month of the Sacred Heart, Day 19, Corpus Christi


Image credit: El Corpus Christi,  Arcadio Mas y Fondevilashamelessly pinched from the Museo del Prado website, which you should absolutely click through to see. 

The Solemnity of Corpus Christi is transferred to today in the U.S., and hence this painting of a Corpus Christi procession -- with an image of the Sacred Heart in the background. 

I know I keep coming back to this quotation, but I love it. 

Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament… There you will find romance, glory, honour, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves on earth....  ~ J.R.R. Tolkien in a letter to his son
