  • Description

    POPE PAUL CELEBRATED AN OPEN-AIR MASS FOR THE FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI AT THE OLYMPIC VILLAGE, NEAR ROME, YESTERDAY EVENING (5 MAY).

    THE FESTIVAL, ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IN THE CATHOLIC CHRISTIAN YEAR, IS TO HONOUR THE REAL PRESENCE OF CHRIST IN THE EUCHARIST. IT IS ALWAYS OBSERVED ON THE FIRST THURSDAY AFTER TRINITY SUNDAY.

    POPE PAUL ARRIVED AT THE VILLAGE, BUILT JUST OUTSIDE THE CITY FOR THE 1960 OLYMPIC GAMES, BY CAR. A CONGREGATION OF SEVERAL THOUSANDS HAD GATHERED TO TAKE PART IN THE OPEN-AIR CEREMONY.

    THE POPE GAVE A LONG SERMON ON THE MEANING OF THE FUCHARIST, WHICH INVOLVES A CENTRAL DOCTRINE OF THE CATHOLIC FAITH: TRANSUBSTANTIATION. THEN HE READ THE MASS, AND GAVE THE SACRAMENTS OF HOLY COMMUNION TO THE CONGREGATION.
