Last Thursday I attended a Missa Cantata for the Feast of Corpus Christi at the York Oratory. After Mass, there was Benediction with a Blessed Sacrament procession. This took place mostly within the church, although the procession did exit through the side door and re-enter through the main door. Both the Mass and the Benediction were accompanied by excellent singing provided by the choral scholars the and assisted by the parish schola.
On Sunday, I travelled to Warrington to attend a Solemn Mass at the FSSP-run Church of St Mary. The Mass was followed by a Eucharistic Procession which progressed through the streets of central Warrington to end up at the Church of St Alban, where Benediction was given. Again there was some wonderful music, with a particularly beautiful polyphonic setting of the Tantum Ergo.
I thought that it was wonderful that the procession passed through the town centre, and was seen by so many people. How good it is to see some of these older practices revived.
