Thought for the Week.

"In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment, there is a need for

silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host.
Be assiduous in the prayer of adoration and teach it to the faithful.
It is a source of comfort and light, particularly for those who are suffering"
(Pope Benedict XVI)
