Last week our Holy Father asked Catholics around the world to unite with him in prayer and adoration in an historic worldwide Eucharistic Holy Hour at 5pm Rome time on June 2.
Below are some pictures from the Solemn Holy Hour held by the Carmelite Friars at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower, here in San Antonio. It was very moving to be with so many other people, adoring Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament in union with Pope Francis. As we always say, there is no distance between tabernacles. We may never go to Rome or meet the Holy Father, but today we were closer to him than ever – we were united in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, a Heart big enough to encompass all of us.
