Manila -- A university Eucharistic procession

On October 7, the Regional Vicar of Opus Dei in the Philippines presided at a solemn procession closing the Eucharistic Year at the University of Asia and the Pacific. This was the first time the university had organized a ceremony of this kind.

During the preceding weeks, the chaplaincy carried out an extensive catechesis regarding the significance of the ceremony to help students derive the greatest possible spiritual benefit, whether Catholics or not.

The response was very positive. Students filled the streets where the procession was held and greeted the passing of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament with reverence and piety. The procession began and ended at the Stella Orientis Oratory, the university’s chapel.
