In response to the 24 Hours for the Lord initiative, the Office of Divine Worship is co-sponsoring 24 hours of adoration and confessions with the Cathedral of St. Joseph in St. Joseph, Mo. and St. Thomas More Parish in Kansas City, Mo.
The 24 Hours for the Lord initiative was first launched in 2014 by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization.
In his 2018 Lenten message, Pope Francis invited the entire Church to “celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation in the context of Eucharistic adoration”.
“Lent summons us, and enables us, to come back to the Lord wholeheartedly and in every aspect of our life,” the pontiff said.
“Above all, I urge the members of the Church to take up the Lenten journey with enthusiasm, sustained by almsgiving, fasting and prayer. If, at times, the flame of charity seems to die in our own hearts, know that this is never the case in the heart of God! He constantly gives us a chance to begin loving anew.”
The pope also desired that at least one church in each diocese around the world to remain open for twenty-four consecutive hours, offering an opportunity for both Eucharistic adoration and sacramental confession.
