Children Of Mary Gave Workshop At Rome Conference
The sisters of the Children of Mary community in Newark were invited to give a workshop at the International Conference of Eucharistic Adoration in Rome from June 20 to 24. The conference was hosted by Bishop Dominique Rey of Frejus-Toulon, France, and the new community he founded to promote perpetual adoration in his diocese, the Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist.
Speaking at the conference were five cardinals and four bishops for the purpose of promoting the desire of the magisterium of the Catholic Church to see perpetual adoration spread to parishes and dioceses around the world.
Concerning the practice of adoration, Pope Benedict XVI has written, "‘No one eats of this flesh without having first adored it,’ as St Augustine writes. Adoration outside Holy Mass prolongs and intensifies what has taken place in the liturgical celebration and makes a true and profound reception of Christ possible.
“I would like to take the opportunity to warmly recommend, to pastors and to all the faithful, the practice of Eucharistic adoration. I express my appreciation to the Institutes of Consecrated Life, as well as to the associations and confraternities that are especially dedicated to this practice. They offer to everyone a reminder of ‘Christ’s centrality in our personal and ecclesial life.’”
The Children of Mary’s charism is to help people understand that Jesus loves them and remains with them in the Holy Eucharist, and that He thirsts for them to love Him in the Most Blessed Sacrament so He can pour out His love and peace into their hearts. The sisters have an adoration chapel in rural Licking County where they welcome guests to adore Our Lord with them.
The sisters have scheduled an Ora et Labora (Pray and Work) Day at the chapel complex on Saturday, Sept. 17, and invite anyone interested in helping maintain their 100 acres of wooded land to join them. There is much to be done, including clearing brush, working in the flower and vegetable gardens, cutting fallen trees, carpentry, and painting. The day will begin with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at 7:30 am and Mass at 9:00 am and end after the Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3:00 pm.
The sisters ask that participants bring chainsaws and battery-pack nail guns if they have them. Wear modest attire, no shorts. Hot dogs and drinks will be provided, or you may bring a side dish or sack lunch. For more information visit www.childrenofmary.net or call (740) 323-1977.
