Corpus Christi Sunday in the Archdiocese of Manila

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was celebrated by His Eminence Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales, Archbishop of Manila. Here are some of the photos I found of the Archdiocesan website and may be of interest to the readers of this blog.

The chair of the archbishop seems to be inspired by the traditional faldstool:

The arrangement of the archbishop-celebrant's chair with reference to the altar is 'liturgically correct' than the previous year's arrangement when it was directly in front of the altar (and the tabernacle) even during the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

The banner before the tabernacle and behind the altar should be placed somewhere else.

Here are some images from the procession of the Body and Blood of the Lord from the Sta. Cruz Church to the Manila Cathedral:

(Why not use the thurible in the preceding Mass?)

The procession ended this way last year:

With greater humility this year:

May the Lord continue to bless the Cardinal-Archbishop of Manila and the entire Catholic Philippines.
