Rome June 2011 Conference on Perpetual Adoration

There will be a conference in Rome next June which some of you may desire to attend.

This conference intends to give impetus to the spread of Eucharistic Adoration.

Think about parishes where there is Eucharistic Adoration.  Isn’t it the case that good things usually happen in these places?

The First International Conference on Eucharistic Adoration will be held in Rome (Italy) from June 20 to June 23, 2011.

It looks as if the venue will be the Salesianum… ’cause it seems to be all Salesian all the time in Rome these days.  They would have done better at the much better situated Augustinianum, but that’s just my observation.

The conference was apparently announced by H.E. Most. Rev. Dominique Rey, Bishop of Frejus-Toulon in France.  You may recall that he supports a seminarians who desire both forms of the Roman Rite.  He also founded a group called the Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist.

The now usual suspects, very welcome and interesting usual suspects are involved, through the impetus seems to be coming from a new and real player in the European “new evangelization” track.

    In my experience, yes. Moreover, resistance and thinly-veiled hostility to the practice is very telling. Guess what my first experience of that was. Yep. From my women-priest wantin’, contraception approving RCIA director.

  2. Interestingly, I have seen adoration — and even perpetual adoration — in parishes where orthodoxy is seriously wanting. The adoration seems to be happening in spite of unfavorable conditions.

    Wow, what a lineup! How can one refuse this conference with so many of our finest prelates involved?

  4. Christo et Ecclesiae says:

    I can attest that in an area where the Catholic culture is disintegrating, my parish with perpetual adoration is an authentic refuge of orthodoxy and true dogma. It attracts people from the parish, from other parishes who are not in such a positive orthodox light, and those from a TLM parish, all coming to the altar of God to adore their “lover” as St. Augustine would say.

    Wow… out of this tiny list my native Oklahoma is represented. :) Wahoo.

  6. Adoration is pretty basically Catholic. So yeah, a lot of people who’ve been drawn off, chasing after false scents, are still Catholic enough to love Christ and adoration.

    Of course, the Real Presence in the tabernacle is often a draw into the Church for non-Catholics and even non-Christians, if they’re spiritually open to God. Adoration is like a gateway into deepening of faith, from wherever you happen to start.

    I’d go to something like this in a heartbeat-what a ‘lineup’ of speakers! Wahoo, indeed!
    If only I had a larger bankroll and a new passport….sigh….
