This Sunday, June 2nd: Global Hour of Eucharistic Adoration

Peace and blessings all. In case you had not heard, the Holy Father is calling for a global hour of Eucharistic Adoration this Sunday, June 2 at 5:00 pm Rome time. As this is the first time IN HISTORY that this has happened, I wanted to spread the word to all of you so that you may consider whether or not it is possible for you to participate. Here is an excerpt from the Vatican Radio website: “It will be an event,” Archbishop Fisichella president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization, explained, “occurring for the first time in the history of the Church, which is why we can describe it as ‘historical’. The cathedrals of the world will be synchronized with Rome and will, for an hour, be in communion with the Pope in Eucharistic adoration. There has been an incredible response to this initiative, going beyond the cathedrals and involving episcopal conferences, parishes, lay associations, and religious congregations, especially cloistered ones.” Text from page of the Vatican Radio website May the Lord richly bless the world through this holy hour!
