TO MARK the 60th anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s ordination to priesthood, Thomasians and parishioners in Sampaloc offered prayers in a 60-hour Eucharistic adoration from June 29 to July 1 at the Santisimo Rosario Parish.

Around 5,600 students taking Theology classes participated in the adoration dubbed “Days of Prayer.”

Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales called on parishes, shrines, chaplaincies, and communities of religious congregations in the Archdiocese in Manila to hold 60 hours of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament upon the Vatican’s request.

The adoration was divided into two parts: the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament that included praying of the scriptural rosary, scriptural reading and prayer, and gospel reading and reflection. The adoration ended with a benediction.

“This is a good time for meditation and reflection not just for the Pope but also to all the priests’ sanctification, as priests dedicate their time to reflect on the calling of God to their priesthood,” Santisimo Rosario Parish priest Fr. Franklin Beltran, O.P. said.

Rosales requested for a documentation of the adoration which will be sent to the Holy Father.

The adoration started during the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul at 9 a.m. last June 29 and ended with the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus at 4 p.m. last July 1. B. D. Nicolas
