EXTERNAL Solemnity of Corpus Christi

The previous post announcing the Corpus Christi Masses erroneously stated that Immaculate Conception Cleveland was observing this Solemnity on Sunday, June 2, in connection with the U.S. Bishops transferal of the feast from Thursday to Sunday.

The correct way to understand this is that it was fully permissible in 1962, and even earlier, to celebrate the EXTERNAL Solemnity of Corpus Christi on Sunday. Information we have found says the indult goes back as far as Pope Leo XIII.

We apologize for any unintended implications or misunderstandings.
