1: Corpus Christi , "body of blood".
2: What is "Corpus Christi?"
3: "Corpus Christi", Latin for Body of Chris, is a Latin Rite solemnity, now designated the solemnity of The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. It is also celebrated in some Anglican, Lutheran and Old Catholic Churches.
4: Like Trinity Sunday and the Solemnity of Christ the King, it doesn't celebrate a specific event in Jesus' life. It just honors the Body and Blood of Christ.
7: Its date is the Thursday after Trinity Sunday, but it was assigned to the Sunday after the "Most Holy Trinity" as a proper day because the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ isn't a Holy day of Obligation!
11: Cadiz itself is an older, historic City that can be found on Spain's south coast. Unlike large parts of Spain, Cadiz is actually on the Atlantic Ocean and always has a refreshing cool breeze running across it from the Ocean. To get to Cadiz for the Corpus Christi Celebration you need to fly into either Seville or Jerez Airport. Another way could be Faro Airport in Portugal which is only 2 hours away by car. After or before the Corpus Christi festival visitors usually spend time on the coast and countryside around Cadiz.
12: The feast of Corpus Christi in Cadiz involves a session in which a Holy Host, Isenshrined, is brought to the streets and alleyways surrounding the Cathedral and paraded through beautifully decorated streets.
