1. Corpus Christi tidbit
...It’s been three years since Juan Jose Duenas jumped over dozens of babies to the cheers of thousands of spectators, but he remembers it as one of the high points of his life and considers it the fulfillment of a family legacy.
Following in the footsteps of his father and his grandfather, Jose Duenas volunteered for the lead role in El Colacho, an unusual religious festival held annually in this small Spanish village on the Feast of Corpus Christi.

2. A happy and holy Corpus Christi to all

3. Christi Corpus haiku

Corpus Christi -
in sunshine, street parades and
prayers of the faithful

It is indeed Corpus Christi celebration day in Trinidad and other places. I like your use of the 3 parts. And believe those babies are blessed for more reasons than surviving the jump. What a christening! Wonderful prayerful presentation. Thank you.
