Mother Teresa of Kolkata and Pope John Paul II

2017: Fatima Centenary Year
August 5-6:  Transfiguration of the Lord

Mother Teresa of Kolkata: 
“Perpetual adoration with exposition needs a great push. .. People ask me: ‘What will convert America and save the world?’ My answer is prayer. What we need is for every parish to come before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in Holy Hours of prayer.”

Pope John Paul II:

“The worship of the Eucharist outside of the Mass is of inestimable value for the life of the Church... It is pleasant to spend time with him, to lie close to his breast like the Beloved Disciple ...and to feel the  infinite love present in his heart...St Alphonsus wrote: “Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the sacraments, the  one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us.”
