Historically, during times of sickness Eucharistic processions took place in the streets of major cities. The tradition is returning!

Yesterday Bp. Joseph Strickland of the diocese of Tyler, Texas tweeted, “I call on every Catholic priest to lead a simple Eucharistic Procession around your Church sometime before the Feast of St Joseph, March 19, for repentance, Christ’s healing hand on the Coronavirus & that all men may be Godly, manly sons & disciples of His Son Jesus Christ.”

Here are some images and videos of this phenomenon happening in these times, particularly in Italy.
