"24 Hours for the Lord" dates announced

Couched within his Message for Lent 2018, the Holy Father Pope Francis has again announced his initiative of "24 Hours for the Lord."

This 24-hour period is a time in which His Holiness invites "the entire Church community to celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation in the context of Eucharistic adoration."

What is more, the Supreme Pontiff announced that "at least one church will remain open for twenty-four consecutive hours, offering an opportunity for both Eucharistic adoration and sacramental confession." The theme for this year's initiative is "With you [God] is forgiveness" (Psalm 130:4).

Be sure to avail yourself of the Lord's mercy this coming Lent and to spend time in his Eucharistic Presence.
