The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (B) Through the gift of the Incarnation, Jesus carries our blood in his veins. Through the gift of the Eucharist, Jesus' blood enters our body. We become "blood brothers" with Jesus. The Eucharist is food for the journey. Jesus leads us, and feeds us, on our pilgrimage to our heavenly homeland.

Going Deeper: Check out the Eucharistic procession in Orvieto, Italy from 2007:
- The 'floats' (more like giant banners) begin 26 minutes into the procession.
- The cathedral umbrella shows up at 35 minutes. I as one of those seminarians back in 2006 or 2007.
- The monstrance, which features the Eucharist above the blood-stained corporal relic, appears at 37 minutes.
