On Saturday 5th September we have another of our regular opportunities for Eucharistic Adoration. St Alphonsus Liguori tells us “You will gain more by praying 15 minutes before the Blessed Sacrament than all the other spiritual exercises of the day”. Our Lord will be exposed on the altar for three hours, from 3 pm – 6 pm, so you will have plenty of time to spend with Him.
Also during this time there will be two priests available to hear Confessions. As Confessions are not being heard after Sunday Mass at the moment, this is an invaluable opportunity. Of this Sacrament, St Francis de Sales says: “Go to your confessor; open your heart to him; display to him all the recesses of your soul; take the advice that he will give you with the utmost humility and simplicity. For God, Who has an infinite love for obedience, frequently renders profitable the counsels we take from others, but especially from those who are the guides of our souls”.
Two very good reasons to be at Christ the King on Saturday week! If you can’t come this time, there will be further afternoons of Adoration and Confession on the first Saturday of October, November and December, also from 3 pm – 6 pm.
