Pope Francis and Eucharistic Adoration

Have not yet seen the following excerpt get much play or discussion. Have you?

From the recent interview of our Holy Father, we learn that, he, like his predecessors, John Paul II and Benedict XVI, makes a holy hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament every evening.

Certainly, if our Holy Father makes Eucharistic Adoration a priority of his daily life, we, if we really wanted to, can and should find one hour each week to do likewise.

Why the on-going reluctance to promote this most vital devotion - one that Our Lord Himself has asked us to do?


  1. Every life story I've read of great priests has this in common: they spent one hour in Adoration every single day. Venerable Fulton J. Sheen, Father John Hardon,SJ, the Popes from the past several hundred years, the great missionaries. Priests, get away from your TVs and in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Then you will be credible when calling your parishioners to do the same.

  2. You are absolutely correct Barb. That is why we must encourage and pray that our priests will come to treasure Adoration as did their saintly brothers. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
