#Procesja Connects Millions of Poles for Corpus Christi on Social Media

Polish Catholic Bishops' Conference: "Let's get a picture in the social media of how we are experiencing the Feast of Corpus Christi in our countries"
Poland (kath.net) "Let's make a picture of how we experience the Corpus Christi feast in our countries in social media. Share pictures and films that we tag with the hashtag #Procession." The speaker of the Polish Bishops' Conference, Rev. Pavel Rytel-Andrianik, said Friday. Last year, this initiative brought together 5 million Poles. "I hope that this will be the case again," said. Rytel-Andrianik. "If you want to see how the processions in Poland present themselves, please state #Procesja (Procession)." John Paul II said that faith will be strengthened if it is passed on  "- recalls the bishop's spokesman sharing the experience of faith on Facebook and Twitter. "Corpus Christi is a public testimony of our faith, and we can do that on social media as well, by sharing images and movies with the #procession hashtag, and we get a picture speaking to how we experience this festival in our country," stressed Rev. Pavel Rytel-Andrianik.

The spokesman of the Polish Bishops' Conference says that Corpus Christi is the moment in which Catholics come in processions on streets of the cities to worship Jesus and meditate on the mystery of the presence of Jesus in the Holy of Holies. "This is not a demonstration, but the great prayer of the whole Church that unites many people who come to the community to worship Jesus and invite him to their daily lives. After all, the processions pass by our living, working and entertainment places. So we can say that the feast of Corpus Christi should emphasize the presence of God in all our affairs. We can also share this experience on social media by releasing images and films with the hashtag #Procession during Corpus Christi and the Octave of this celebration "- emphasizes Rev. Rytel-Andrianik.

He added that previous initiatives of this kind have been very popular on the social media and have shown that there is a need among their users to share the experience of the faith. "One very important aspect of such initiatives is the fact that we are able to participate in important religious events by publishing pictures or films, such as those taken by smartphone. Moreover, those who for various reasons can not participate in processions in person, can connect spiritually"- says the bishop's spokesman.

Wonderful example and hopefully they are praying for their Polish Cardinal Hlond whose cause was stopped looks like they will need a miracle to push it through this Pontificate.

I hope no one shows up for Francis' Corpus Christi procession tucked away in a neighborhood near Ostia. On the other hand, I wish the Romans would organize their own procession, turn out by the thousands as if to say to Francis...."you dumped us for Corpus Christi, we don't need you either."
