Details of a Monstrance and photos from Corpus Christi

On Corpus Christi Sunday, we had day long adoration at St. Landry Catholic Church followed by benediction. The monstrance used is very ornate and includes what looks to be limoges hand painted porcelain pictures of the four gospel writers along with St. Peter and St. Paul.

The monstrance draws its name from the Latin word "monstrare" which means "to show".

First, here is a link to a 3D Photosynth of the monstrance. Clicking at various points on the monstrance will zoom in, bring in more detail, or zoom out. Click here for the 3D monstrance.

There are details of the monstrance within the photo gallery. And there also details of the cope worn by Father Brady during the procession. Click here for the photo gallery.
