Eucharistic Float on Display

(The Freeman) - January 30, 2016 - 9:00am

CEBU, Philippines - The float or “carozza” used during the Grand International Eucharistic Procession last Friday is currently on display in SM Seaside City Cebu.

On board the Eucharistic float during the solemn procession following the Holy Mass at the Cebu Provincial Capitol were Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma, Vatican Archbishop Piero Marini, and the Papal Legate to the 51st International Eucharistic Celebration, Myanmar Cardinal Charles Maung Bo.

The Eucharistic float carries a custom-made gold-plated brass monstrance or the “ostensorium,” considered to be the largest and tallest monstrance in Cebu, standing at 4 feet tall. The backdrop feature replicas of the  major churches in Cebu – Basilica Minore del Sto.Niño, Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, the National Shrine of St. Joseph, the National Shrine of Our Lady of Rule, and Archdiocesan Shrine of San Pedro Calungsod, all made of capiz shells.

The “carozza” decorated with roses, orchids, and with white liliums is displayed at the upper ground level, car drop-off area, of the Mountain Wing, SM Seaside City Cebu. (FREEMAN)
