This last Sunday was Corpus Christi! We celebrated the Body and Blood of Jesus: His True Presence in the Blessed Sacrament!
Excerpts from A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families , various posts at Equipping Catholic Families and our Saint Scripts Craft Kits (Series ONE and TWO).
I don’t have pictures yet of this year’s Corpus Christi procession, but these were from last year!
Last year, I decided to make Catholic Icing’s Monstrance Craft with sliced pool noodles left over from our Minute to Win it birthday party. I also used some sparkly gold pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, beads, glitter and glue to construct our own little play monstrance, offering a great opportunity to talk about the use of the monstrance at Adoration and the Mystery of the True Presence.
Familia Católica has a nice summary post of monstrance crafts!
There are quite a few monstrance crafts out there…from coloring pages to golden doilies on Pinterest, showing how we believe in the True Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist and how Jesus is often presented inside the monstrance during Benediction and Adoration.
Hey, do YOU Follow Monica on Pinterest, yet?!
