Pope Benedict unites himself to moving Eucharistic Adoration

.- The fathers meditated together in the evening in Saint Peters Basilica to realize the most emblematic event of the Synod of Bishops: the eucharistic adoration, in which Pope Benedict was present.

Gathered before the altar of Confession in the Vatican Basilica, the more than 250 participants of the Synod, that will end next Saturday, participated in the exposition, adoration and blessing of the Blessed Sacrament.

Members of the Roman Curie and hundreds of faithful of the Roman Diocese were present as well in the emotive event in which songs, solemn canticles, biblical reflections and extended moments of silence alternated.

According to the Holy See press office , “ with the eucharistic adoration on the day in which our liturgy remembers Saint Ignatius of Antioch, witness of the first Christians, Bishops and the faithful confess that the eucharistic mystery is present in the flesh of Christ our Savior.”

The act was presided by Cardinal Francis Arinze, Delegated President of the 11th Ordinary Assembly General of the Synod of Bishops.
