Every August, Bishop celebrates the Mass with Perpetual Profession of Vows for the Sisters of Perpetual Adoration; so, on this episode, he breaks down what happens during this type of Mass. Then he reflects upon the important role those living a form of consecrated life have for the mission of the Church and the world.
The show wraps up with these listener-submitted questions:
- With the USCCB conference on the importance of the Eucharist, I am concerned that in my parish Eucharistic Adoration has been reduced to a minimum of reverence by quick exposition of the Blessed Sacrament without proper vestments, usual hymn and repose of the Blessed Sacrament without usual hymn and prayers. It seems there is a rush to expose the Blessed Sacrament for the faithful and leave. When reposing the Blessed Sacrament again, no proper vestment for benediction, hymn or prayer, only a short hymn. Is this proper and acceptable now? I miss the complete reverent ritual I grew up with. This may have changed now. But appreciate your comments if this is still ongoing.
- I’ve noticed that atheists often get angry when discussing God. Have you noticed this? Any thoughts on why this happens?
- Do you have a favorite liturgical feast or solemnity? Why?
