Corpus Christi Procession and Adoration

To mark the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) our liturgy concluded with a procession of the Blessed Sacrament through the monastery and part of the enclosure grounds. After the procession the Eucharist was placed in exposition upon the altar for adoration throughout the day until evening Vespers (5:30pm) which concluded with Benediction.

Instructions

It is desirable that a procession take place after the Mass in which the Host to be carried in the procession is consecrated. … If a procession takes place after Mass, when the Communion of the faithful is over, the monstrance in which the consecrated host has been placed is set on the altar. When the Prayer after Communion has been said, the Concluding Rites are omitted and the procession forms.
