Memo to Bishop Lynch

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 23, 2004

The Ordinary should diligently foster Eucharistic adoration, whether brief or prolonged or almost continuous, with the participation of the people. For in recent years in so many places “adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament is also an important daily practice and becomes an inexhaustible source of holiness”, although there are also places "where there is evident almost a total lack of regard for worship in the form of eucharistic adoration."

Redemptionis Sacramentum, 136

    Commenting to a priest friend that we here in Perth (Australia) have had 42 ordinations in the last 7 years and he, in Leeds(UK) will have 1 in the next 3 years, my reply to him as to what "we" were doing that his diocese was not, I said "Eucharistic Adoration" There are 4 Parishes here with perpetual adoration and many others with two or three days every week. Prayer is the only answer to a "shortage" of priests. As someone said "If you plan for priestless parishes, you'll get them"
