This is amazing!

Journalist Bree A. Dail posted an amazing two-minute video from a 1918 Corpus Christi Eucharistic procession in England.  The Solemnity of Corpus Christi traditionally falls on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday. In the United States, however, the Church transfers the feast to the following Sunday.

This year’s solemnity falls on Sun., June 6.

Here’s the incredible 1918 video below:
