It is always done in Rome.
And also here, albeit quite rarely, in the Philippines.
Thank the Lord for this!

So, who is the one who does not understand, eh?
As the saying in Tagalog goes:
"Kung gusto hahanapan ng paraan. Kung ayaw, hahanapan ng dahilan."
Hmmm...let me answer that.
The procession of the Blessed Sacrament outside of the church or chapel happens only twice a year: Corpus Christi and Christ the King.
Only two. And your friendly neighborhood TV Mass priest would not dare have it.
Guess airtime is too short for him, eh? But not the SOBRE!
If you don't hold processions, how do you expect people to develop that love and devotion to the Mass and the Eucharist? By your jokes in your homily? By singing and dancing at Mass? By asking them to clap at the end of a lousy, empty homily?
This is the right way to do it!
And this one is the way to sure failure!
I bet that this Willie Revillame priest did not have a Corpus Christi procession.
