The sanctuary of Saint Juliana of Cornillon
It was here that St. Juliana (1192-1258), the great mystic at the base of the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ in the universal Church, lived. The former leprosarium has become a sanctuary with the monastery of the Poor Clares Sisters, the medieval chapel, the host workshop, a contemporary beguinage and the hostel of the pilgrims Saint Francis. In short, Mount Cornillon has been a high place of prayer for more than 8 centuries. The first Corpus Christi Festival took place in Liege in 1246 and since then, all over the world.
Bishop Delville, Bishop of the Diocese of Liège, recommends the monastic hosts of Cornillon.
