God in Preston and New York

Scenes of faith and devotion to reflect on during the Feast of Corpus Christi

Remember the Hallelujah flash mob that now has over 33 million views? Or the pro-life flash mob that surprised the people at a Walk for Choice rally in Chicago? Now here's a very different kind of "flash mob" -- a Eucharistic one that has gotten mixed reactions from Catholics in the blogosphere. Some find it very moving and inspiring, while others are wondering if the Blessed Sacrament is given proper reverence in this type of public event. What do you think?

Tim Drake of the National Catholic Register has transcribed the litany of Christ's titles recited by the friar before the crowd.

Another timely video for the Feast of Corpus Christi is God in The Streets of New York City. "The monstrance which is used to carry the Blessed Sacrament is one of six that were blessed by Pope John II before his death to mark the celebration of the Year of the Eucharist. God In The Streets of New York City depicts the contrast between the everyday chaos of the busy streets -- complete with traffic, construction and police cars -- and the peaceful presence of Jesus. There is always an opportunity to meet Jesus face to face. It poses the question: Will you recognize him?" - Grassroots Films
