Pope announces world-wide hour of Eucharistic Adoration on Sunday, June 2, 2013.


Vatican City, May 28, 2013 / 06:39 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The Catholic world will be united with Pope Francis on the Feast of Corpus Christi as he leads a “historic” hour of simultaneous Eucharistic Adoration.

“Even some islands in the middle of the ocean … at two in the morning – they don’t have electricity – but even with that they will be in communion with us and Pope Francis for one hour,” Archbishop Rino Fisichella said as he explained the intense reaction he is seeing to the June 2 event.

“I am proud to say that this is a historical moment for the history of the Church because for one hour all the churches in the world will be united. … We are united because the Eucharist makes us all one body and one spirit, so we enter into the deepest meaning of the Eucharist,” the archbishop told CNA in a May 28 interview.

  1. The editors note on conversion times does not appear to be correct.

    • Thank you. I made the correction. Hopefully, it’s right this time.


  2. Heaven knows I have not withheld my criticism on many other matters. I salute Pope Francis on this one.
