O SALUTARIS OSTIA

Pope Francis' Corpus Christi Mass from Ostia, Italia should be around 11:30 or so live. It begins with the papal Mass and then procession, this year in Ostia, the Italian word for Host. The last time Corpus Christi was celebrated in Ostia by a pope was 50 years ago,but on the traditional Thursday not the following Sunday. It was Pope Paul VI and in 1968 when His Holiness issued Humanae Vitae, that historic and prophetic moral teaching.

Apparently, JP2 also held the annual Corpus Christi procession in the Ostia area of Rome.
