LA PROCESSION AUX LIMACES

Saturday 22 June 2019

Description:

This tradition dates back to the Middle Ages. It was Pope Urban IV who decided in 1264 to celebrate with a special event the sacrament of the Eucharist. His successor John XXII endowed it with an octave like the great religious festivals and prescribed a procession of the Blessed Sacrament.
