we want to understand the meaning of Corpus Christi, the
best thing to do is simply to look at the liturgical form
in which the Church celebrates and expounds the significance
of this feast. Over and above the elements common to all
Christian feasts, there are three components especially
that constitute the distinctive shape of the way we celebrate
"First there is what we are doing right now, meeting
together around the Lord, standing before the Lord,
for the Lord, and thus standing side by side together.
Next there is walking with the Lord, the procession.
And finally there is the heart and the climax of it,
kneeling before the Lord, the adoration, glorifying
him and rejoicing in his presence." (Excerpted
from God Is Near Us, by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger,)
