Every Thursday...

...after the morning Mass, our parish priest places - better, enthrones - the Blessed Sacrament on the altar for adoration. People come throughout the day to pray. It is peaceful and beautiful: candles glittering, some devotional booklets on a table near the door, plus a book you can sign if you like.

There are massive roadworks going on alongside the church, making access difficult but this has made no difference: there were large numbers at Mass this morning.

Mid-afternoon saw me hurrying with some old DVDs and other clutter to take to a charity shop. I did a shall-I-shan't-I at the major road junction, wondering whether or not to make a visit to the church. I am so glad I did. Thursday is the day you say the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary.

Our parish is one of two in the diocese of Lexington, Kentucky with continuous perpetual adoration; it has been such a rich blessing because of the many graces the good Lord has granted our parish. Among the graces received, the number of men going into the priesthood and women into religious life is prominent.
