Papal Call for Holy Hour on Sunday for Corpus Christi

All parishes and all people have been called by the Pope to take part in a Holy Hour on Sunday, at 4-5 British time.

Please take part in this, and pray for pro-life issues, as the Pope wants all the join him in prayer. Here is a snippet:

....intentions proposed by the Pope. The first is: “For the Church spread throughout the world and united today in the adoration of the Most Holy Eucharist as a sign of unity. May the Lord make her ever more obedient to hearing his Word in order to stand before the world ‘ever more beautiful, without stain or blemish, but holy and blameless.’ That through her faithful announcement, the Word that saves may still resonate as the bearer of mercy and may increase love to give full meaning to pain and suffering, giving back joy and serenity.”

Pope Francis’ second intention is: “For those around the world who still suffer slavery and who are victims of war, human trafficking, drug running, and slave labour. For the children and women who are suffering from every type of violence. May their silent scream for help be heard by a vigilant Church so that, gazing upon the crucified Christ, she may not forget the many brothers and sisters who are left at the mercy of violence. Also, for all those who find themselves in economically precarious situations, above all for the unemployed, the elderly, migrants, the homeless, prisoners, and those who experience marginalization. That the Church’s prayer and its active nearness give them comfort and assistance in hope and strength and courage in defending human dignity.”

Pray for the Adoration, Latin Mass community and house for Walsingham.

Here is the announcement from Westminster:

Description:The Feast of Corpus Christi - Holy Hour (Eucharistic Adoration with Pope Francis)
Venue:Westminster Cathedral
Postcode:SW1P 1QJ

May I add that I hope priests and deacons follow the rules on Eucharistic Adoration. There are many abuses here in Great Britain concerning the set-up of Christ in the Monstrance.
