QUARANT'ORE AT ST. RAPHAEL'S CHURCH


FORTY HOURS OF CONTINUOUS PRAYER

BEFORE THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

FOR OUR NEW ARCHBISHOP, PETER SMITH,

OUR DIOCESE AND OUR PARISH


"In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment,

there is a need for silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host.  Be assiduous in the prayer of adoration

 and teach it to the faithful.  It is a source of comfort and light, particularly to those who are suffering."
 

- Pope Benedict XVI –

"Go to the encounter with him in the Blessed Eucharist, go to

adore him in the churches, kneeling before the Tabernacle: Jesus

will fill you with his love and will reveal to you the thoughts of his

Heart. If you listen to him, you will feel ever more deeply the joy

of belonging to his Mystical Body, the Church, which is the family

of his disciples held close by the bond of unity and love."

- Pope Benedict XVI –
