International Conference on Eucharistic Adoration
The Bishop of Fréjus-Toulon, France, Bishop Dominique Rey (see Fr Tim Finigan's blog for some facts about Bishop Rey) has announced a major International Conference on Eucharistic Adoration to take place in Rome from June 20-24, 2011.
Organised by the Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist, a new community founded by Bishop Rey in 2007, the conference brings together a wide range of international speakers, including six prominent Cardinals. “The first condition for the new evangelisation is adoration”, Bishop Rey said. “We must regain the ability to adore Christ in the Most Holy Eucharist if we are to bring the men and women of the twenty-first century to faith in Jesus Christ. This is one of the key themes of the pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI”, he emphasised, “which is why we are taking this initiative.”
Adoratio 2011 will be held in Rome, June 20th - 24th. Speakers will include Cardinal Francis Arinze, Emeritus Prefect of the Congregation of Divine Worship; Cardinal Raymond Burke, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura; Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera, Prefect for the Congregation of Divine Worship; Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, Archbishop of Colombo, Sri Lanka, former Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship.
The Conference aim: to promote the desire of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church to see Perpetual Adoration spread to Parishes and Dioceses around the world.
