Signs of Life

There is a rather antique basilica near where I live called Santa Maria in Via Lata (Our Lady’s on the Wide Street – “Via Lata” was the name of what is now Via del Corso, back in the day). See a previous post here.

Most evenings this church has adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. I like to stop in to pray on occasion. And it’s always nice to see people in there – mostly locals. On a recent night there were a good 15-20 people in there to keep company with Our Lord (not all visible in the photo):

The columns are made of Sicilian jasper. FYI.

I cannot speak highly enough about Eucharistic Adoration and the blessings that it brings upon individuals, families, parishes, and communities.

Question: Have you made a visit to the Blessed Sacrament this week, whether just by stopping into church or by participating in a holy hour in an adoration chapel, apart from fulfilling your weekly Mass obligation? Our Lord is waiting for you.
