Love Made Visible

“Pope Francis says that in our time, “humanity is experiencing a turning-point in its history,” in which “our contemporaries are barely living from day to day, with dire consequences.” We are acutely aware that in our world abortion is tolerated, personal conscience obliterated, and the family undermined and attacked by the cultural powers that shape public opinion and policy. More personally, we are all aware that in our post-Christian culture, men and women are impacted by a terrible loneliness, a despondency, and, ultimately, by the gripping despair of life without God.”

“Encountering Christ in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is an invitation, for all people, to deepen their relationship with the Lord, and to grow in communion with his Church. In adoration, we grow in unity and friendship with him—we learn to hear his voice, to know his will, and, most especially, to know and trust the power of his love.”

Read Bishop James Conley’s pastoral letter on adoration of the Most Holy Eucharist
