366 Project - Day 150 - "Corpus Christi"

May 29, 2016 - "Corpus Christi"

Today is the Solemnity of The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ" or, more simply, "Corpus Christi".

After today's Mass I made my way into our Perpetual Adoration Chapel to serve my assigned weekly Holy Hour. When I first entered the chapel there were at least a half-dozen other people there, kneeling in prayer. I signed in... made my way to one of the pews... pulled down the kneeler, and began to pray.

Within about five minutes everyone else had left the chapel, and I was alone with the Blessed Sacrament for the remainder of the hour until the next adorer arrived to relieve me. It was quiet and beautiful. The only sounds were the ticking of the small clock at the back of the chapel... the clicking of my Rosary beads as I prayed... and to occasional sound of a car passing by the building.

An hour of quiet prayer with just the Blessed Sacrament and me...

... it truly was the most perfect way I could've celebrated Corpus Christi!
