This is a Eucharistic Procession held... This is a Eucharistic Procession held on November 1, 2006 (All Saints Day) on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The procession was organized by the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Newman Center.
The Eucharistic procession is a centuries-old tradition in the Catholic Church. Ever since Jesus instituted the Eucharist at the Last Supper, His Church has consistently taught that Christ is truly and physically present--Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity--in the Blessed Sacrament. And so, fittingly, the Eucharistic procession is a form of adoration and evangelization as Christ is presented physically for all to witness as we accompany him. The Eucharist is the greatest treasure of the Church and so the Church wishes to bring this good news to all, just as the Angel brought the good news of Christ's birth to the shepherds: "Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people!" (Luke 2:10)
"Do not be afraid to go out on the streets and into public places, like the first apostles who preached Christ and the good news of salvation in the squares of cities..." - Pope John Paul II
