catholic procession dedicated to Corpus Christi will go through Moscow on Sunday
A catholic procession dedicated to Corpus Christi, a most picturesque Catholic holiday, will go through Moscow on Sunday. According to the information of the clergy, the holiday mass will begin in the Catholic cathedral on Malaya Gruzinskaya Ulitsa, after which the holiday procession will go from Malaya Gruzinskaya to Rastorguyevsky Pereulok, Presnensky Val, and Ulitsa Klimashkina. At the head of the procession will be Metropolitan Tadeusz Kondrusewic carrying the Holy Gifts under a gold baldachin. Girls dressed in white will scatter rose petals on Moscow's streets, and hundreds of Catholics with holy banners will sign religious songs. Dean of the Moscow cathedral Joseph Zaniewsky said that this would be the sixth year in a row that Moscow Catholics perform such a procession. Corpus Christi is always a Thursday but in Moscow it was deliberately postponed until Sunday. Spokespersons at the information center of the Conference of Catholic Bishops said that in countries where Catholics dominate this holiday becomes effectively a day-off, for thousands of people pour on the streets to go for hours from one church to another. However, Catholic Christianity is not considered one of Russia's traditional religions - Orthodox Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism. The advent of these four confessions to Russia was natural and historically justified.
