    Oh yeah nothing like mixing up some good religion and jingoism. I prefer not to have the US flag in church

    I am not sure where I stand on Corpus Christi processions (no pun intended).

    I suppose some of what I think is coloured by my experience. Although an Anglo-Catholic my primary exposure has been to the Mass and Divine Office. I have known, but never been associated with parishes, that do Exposition, Benediction, etc.

    I think my personal convictions on this are closer to Eastern Orthodoxy (EO) than to Roman Catholic views. I do believe when we receive Holy Communion we really do receive Our Lord's Sacred Body and His Precious Blood. How the Holy Spirit goes about converting bread and wine into these sacred species I consider to be a mystery. My views similar to EO is that the sacrament is for consumption rather than for lifting up, showing or parading around.
