Chinese parish begins 13 hours of daily Eucharist adoration

.- The parish of St. Peter and Paul in Yuan Lang, in the Diocese of Hong Kong, has begun Eucharistic adoration for 13 hours daily in response to the recent apostolic exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis by Pope Benedict XVI.

According the diocesan bulletin Kong KoBao, cited by the Fides News Agency, the pastor, Father Gervais E Baudry, said daily adoration of the Blessed Sacrament leads to closer union with Christ: “Adoration helps us make Jesus the centre of our life as individuals, as a family, as a parish. It is a source of encouragement and comfort,” he said.

He added that said the parish had decided to begin with 13 hours but the target was “24 hour adoration in response to the Holy Father’s appeal.”  Recently more than 300 Chinese Catholics participated in a Mass celebrated by the Bishop of Hong Kong, Cardinal Joseph Zen, in which he emphasized the importance of the Eucharist in light of the Holy Father’s exhortation.
