Russian faithful allowed Corpus Christi procession after 95 years

The last Corpus Christi procession had taken place back in 1918. Since then, political and social upheaval forbade all religious festivals and rituals, ending a centuries long tradition common to both the Eastern and the Western Churches.The faithful were only allowed to gather processions within their churches, but were strictly prevented from taking them to the streets. ;The historic event, which took place on June 2nd, was attended by many, including members of religious orders, fraternities and numerous children, all escorted through the city by the police.BBRR-JM-PRUp:SCar
