The aggravation of the epidemic scenario in Macau forced the Cathedral parish to postpone the feast of the First Holy Communion. Covid-19 hindered the Corpus Christi celebrations, but did not prevent them from happening. The ceremony was broadcasted live on the Internet. The procession that should have connected Saint Joseph’s School and the Cathedral of the Nativity of Our Lady was, nevertheless, cancelled.
The feast of Corpus Christi allows us to recall that Jesus, the representation of the Old Covenant Passover lamb, gave up his body for us that we might be spiritually nourished and be exempt from sin. As Catholics, we are also called to renew our awareness of the dignity of the human person, created in the image of God.
