Pope Francis to celebrate Corpus Christi in St. Peter's Basilica on Sunday

This Sunday Pope Francis will celebrate Mass at the Altar of the Chair in St. Peter's Basilica for the Feast of Corpus Christi. The Mass will begin at 5:30 p.m. Rome time.

During his General Audience, the Pope urged Catholics to deeply contemplate the significance of Corpus Christi. He said that the Eucharist is a source of much-needed support during difficult moments.

"In the Eucharist, which is a mystery of love and glory, we find the source of grace and light that illuminates the paths of our lives."

Traditionally, the Pope celebrates Corpus Christi with a procession through the streets of Rome. However, Pope Francis has also celebrated this feast day outside of the city.

This year, he won't be able to leave the Vatican for the second year in a row because of the pandemic.
