.- The faithful of the Basilica of San Jose de Flores in Buenos Aires are celebrating their second year of perpetual adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, a practice that began in 2003 and has continued uninterrupted every day of the week. More than 400 people from across Buenos Aires participate in the devotion, which is an opportunity for the faithful to be alone with the Lord, who “only seeks out those whom He wishes and whose hearts are open to receiving Him,” members of the community said in a statement.
“Jesus Himself went off alone to pray to the Father in silence. It’s a silence that speaks to the heart, where we discover the face of God and we feel truly loved by Him. Jesus calls and invites each of us in particular—and all of us as a community—to be that Church which unites us in adoration with Him and through Him to the Father in the Spirit, guided by Mary and Joseph, who were the first adorers of the Lord,” they added.
