Parishes Worldwide Prepare for Eucharistic Adoration Hour (June 2 at 11 am ET)
NC Register ^ | May 17, 2013 | EDWARD PENTIN

Posted on 05/26/2013 3:10:25 PM PDT by NYer

To emphasise the centrality of the Eucharist during this Year of Faith, an hour of Eucharistic Adoration will take place worldwide on Sunday June 2nd – the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi). 

According to the Annus Fidei website, “the Holy Father will preside over a special Eucharistic adoration that will extend at the same time all over the world involving the cathedrals and parishes in each diocese.”

“For an hour, at 5pm (Rome time), the whole world will be united in prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament,” the website says.

The USCCB Committee on Divine Worship notes that because of normal Sunday Mass schedules, it will be a particular challenge to schedule such a gathering simultaneously in the various time zones of the United States. 5pm Rome time would be 11:00 AM Eastern, 10:00 AM Central, 9:00 AM Mountain, 8:00 AM Pacific, 7:00 AM in Alaska, and 5:00 AM in Hawaii.

So it recommends keeping the spirit of the gathering by holding such a Holy Hour “at a more convenient time on that day, such as on Sunday afternoon following the last Mass of the day.”

It says such a celebration “could include a traditional Eucharistic procession” and it would also be appropriate “to mark the celebration of regularly scheduled Masses at that particular hour (11:00 AM Eastern) with special solemnity, and to note the unity of prayer with the Holy Father at that time through the homily and Prayer of the Faithful.”

On the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, the Holy Father will preside over a special Eucharistic adoration that will extend at the same time all over the world involving the cathedrals and parishes in each diocese. For an hour, at 5pm (Rome time), the whole world will be united in prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

Our parish will celebrate Divine Liturgy at 10 am and join with the worldwide celebration of Eucharistic Adoration at 11 am. The USCCB has notified all US dioceses. If your parish is not participating, you may want to visit a Perpetual Adoration Chapel in your community.

The Eucharist is the focal and center point of every Catholic Church and what separates Catholic belief from every other form of Christianity. If you do not believe in the Eucharist, you do not believe in Christ, and if you do not believe in Christ, you may as well embrace the Church of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, or Rev. Joel Osteen, or the Church of Bishop Jake, the Church of Latter-Day Saints, Jehovah’s Witnesses. or the Gay Lutheran and Anglican Churches.

I attend a non-denominational and we have communion (Eucharist) every service. Catholics don’t have a monopoly on it.

No Catholic ever claimed other churches do not have Communion. But besides from the Orthodox most do not have the belief in the real presence the Catholic Church has. Does your church have any sort of Eucharistic Adoration?

This time is bad for US churches as many have Mass during those hours.

It is very uncharitable to insult protestants like that. You aren’t going to convert anyone with insults.

” I attend a non-denominational and we have communion (Eucharist) every service. Catholics don’t have a monopoly on it. “

Is your definition of it *transubstantiation* ?

That is the *real thing* - others dont believe that, and theirs have other names for their beliefs.

Thus, Catholics do show utmost reverence and Adoration - or they should.

You have “communion”. We have Christ for communion. There’s a difference.

You THINK you have Christ for communion, but Christ was only sacrificed on the cross one time and that was sufficient for our sins (Acts 4:12; Hebrews 10:14). Christ is not re-sacrificed every time Catholics have a mass.

Of course not. The one sacrifice was enough and it is exactly that sacrifice which is re-presented to the Father at every Mass.

But with transubstantiation Catholics believe it is actually the body and blood of Christ, so you are re-sacrificing Him. Therefore, it can’t be a representation.

Re-presentation. Not representation. And the fact that it is Christ’s body does not mean it is a re-sacrificing of Christ.

"But with transubstantiation Catholics believe it is actually the body and blood of Christ, so you are re-sacrificing Him. Therefore, it can’t be a representation."

Catholics consider Christ's sacrifice on Golgotha to extend throughout all time. It happened once in history, so it can't be a "re-sacrifice", but because Christ is eternal, so is the sacrifice. In other words, at Mass, the celebrants are in a sense present in the upper room as well as in their churches in current time. And yes, Catholics consider the bread and wine to actually be Christ's body and blood, extended and multiplied just as were the "loaves and fishes".

Why is speaking boldly to the truth Catholic belief an insult to anyone? unless just like multiculturalism, we must now be careful in dealing with multiChristianity that includes forms of New Age Christianity as well? Or do we draw the line at the Church of Jeremiah Wright waiting for the chickens to come home to roost?

~ and why do Catholics do that - celebrate Mass/Eucharist :

Because at the Last Supper, Jesus said: This IS MY BODY ~~~ This IS MY BLOOD ~~~ DO THIS to Re - Present Me.

That is how and why Catholics believe this.

**we have communion (Eucharist) every service. **

Question — do you believe that through transubstantiation your communion is the true Body and Blood of Chirst?

What church do you attend?
