Talking the Catholic faith (and Jesus!) to the streets:
In many towns in New England and several other parts of the country, the faith has seen better days especially when we recall their long history of Catholicism and its outward displays — like processions.
But there are signs of a revival. One leader in taking the faith to the streets is the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Waterbury, Connecticut. For several years on Corpus Christi Sunday — the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ — the basilica has led a procession through the city’s downtown honoring the Blessed Sacrament, then concluded with Benediction. Father Christopher Ford, the rector, said that each year the procession grows. This year was no different.
