A procession of the Blessed Sacrament may take place on this day or on another appropriate day near this feast. In 1975, the Sacred Congregation for the Sacraments and Divine Worship indicated that processions should not take place only within the body of a church, as this practice does not fully express the character of a “procession,” which should move from one place to another. The Congregation stated that a procession with the Blessed Sacrament should instead ordinarily move from one church to another church. Nevertheless, if local circumstances require, the procession may return to the same church from where it began.
