Lima, Peru, Mar 24, 2020 / 21:00 pm
With their country under a nationwide stay-at-home order, parishioners at Saint Anthony of Padua parish in Lima, Peru, approached their pastor, Fr. Enrique Díaz, with the idea of exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from the church's roof.
The pastor agreed, and preparations were made for rooftop Holy Hours on March 21 and 22. They'd begin after dusk, with Peruvian music, and they'd aim to bring hope to the people confined in the surrounding buildings.
In a statement to ACI Prensa, CNA's Spanish language news partner, Díaz said that "it was beautiful, and it was very well received by all the people in the neighboring buildings."
Díaz said a nearby restaurant joined the effort by providing lighting and the necessary equipment so all the neighbors in the high rises could experience an hour of adoration.
