As a part of the Year of Faith, Pope Francis is inviting Catholics from around the world to join him in an hour of Eucharistic Adoration on this Sunday’s Solemnity of The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.

Since the hour Pope Francis will be in prayer at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome coincides with the regular Sunday Mass times in our diocese, we will join him ‘in spirit’ at 3:00 pm with an hour of adoration at St. Mary’s Cathedral.  I invite all who are in the Cheyenne vicinity to please join me in this hour of adoration.

Pope Francis has outlined two intentions for this hour of prayer:

The first is for the “Church throughout the world united today in Adoration of the Most Holy Eucharist,” that the Lord makes her ever obedient to his word so that she appears before the world as “beautiful, without spot or wrinkle, holy and without blemish.”

The second intention is dedicated to people around the world who are suffering from violence, drug or human trafficking, economic insecurity, and those who have been pushed to the margins of society.

Please, come join us at St. Mary’s Cathedral for an hour of Eucharistic Adoration this Sunday.  If you cannot join us here, find your nearest church, and join with Pope Francis and Catholics throughout the world as we experience in a concrete moment of prayer the unity that we share in Jesus Christ, present to us through His Most Holy Body and Blood.
