Some years ago I was hanging around outside the Paul VI audience hall (Vatican) during a plenary session of the Italian Bishops Conference. I was waiting for my bishop to emerge. As I waited I chatted with fellow journalists, the bishops’ drivers and secretaries, a couple bishops who had fled the hall in the despair of boredom. The day before, I had been to a Eucharistic procession held by the Teutonic College, next to the Paul VI Hall, that went up through the Vatican gardens. Swiss Guards carried the canopy. Deep in his chest one old bishop rumbled:
“Meno chiacchiere – più processioni. … Less jabbering – more processions.”
This isn’t rocket science.
I received some photos of a Eucharistic procession from the chapel at MIT in Boston to St. Paul’s at Harvard.
My correspondent wrote:
Just a few pictures from the Eucharistic procession from MIT to Harvard last night. Turnout was amazing; St. Paul church was literally overflowing into the street.
I was at that church just over a year ago to sing a Mass and give a talk sponsored by the group Iuventutem. It was a great experience.
Here are some images of their procession.
More photos HERE including one with them passing by a McDonald’s.
