Is having Jesus in the Holy Host becoming rutine? (Spanish) Corpus Christi: perdido y rescatado en México,

El mes de junio está consagrado por la Iglesia católica y sus fieles al Sagrado Corazón de Jesús y en este mes también tenemos la fiesta del Corpus-Christi.
La fiesta del Corpus.Christi, (El Cuerpo de Cristo) es una fiesta muy antigua y parece que se introdujo en las festividades de la Iglesia en el siglo XIII.

Not only did I wish to attend Mass, but I also hoped that the Nuns had posted their Triduum schedule.  They had.  Now I can look forward to attending their Holy Week liturgies.  I have done so in previous years. 

The Monastery has a public chapel where visitors attend Mass while the Nuns have their own chapel to the left side of the sanctuary.  Their chapel is separated from the sanctuary by a grill.  You might enjoy looking at the chapel photos on the Nuns website, here.

The daily Mass is not too different from daily Mass at a parish, but the atmosphere in the chapel is, in my opinion, quieter, as there are fewer people present, and those who are observe great reverence.  At communion time, the chaplain, Fr. Tom, distributes Holy Communion …
