Bringing the Light of Christ to the World

DOWNTOWN, Cleveland — A nearly perfect weather day. The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Faithful Catholics. Pious and humble priests. Awaiting the moment Our Lord would be brought forth for the world to behold.

The Legion of Mary of Northern Ohio organized a Eucharistic Procession on Saturday, the 5th of September, 2020. Starting at about noon, Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament was exposed in the monstrance for the adoration of the Faithful. Prayers were offered, familiar hymns were sung and Sacred Scripture was read.

The procession went out the front doors and headed north on East 9th Street. Then a series of left turns brought Our Lord down Superior Avenue, back towards St. John’s Cathedral.

By this time, my young children were ready for it to end and go get some lunch. So I have no images to share from inside of the Cathedral post-procession. But you can find some from others here.

It was good to witness this Catholic Action.
