Corpus Christi 2012
Corpus Christi, when i was child, is the day i would hear adults acknowledge as 'The Start Of The Rainy Season' with all the vehemence of a modern day meteorologist; its the day too i got to plant pigeon peas and corn with my father.
In the religious arena, this is the day for Catholics as a pivot to all other religious observances, the focal point being the Holy Eucharist with a sub theme of the church as The Body of Christ; We Catholics are rich in terms of our liturgical observances and this day is not without its share of pomp, its a holiday here in Trinidad and Tobago and the morning is given to the Corpus Christi procession of devotees, and this year, 2012 with a new archbishop.
