The Lord in our midst

Today the 40 Hours devotion continues, with a steady stream of people coming for public and private prayer. This afternoon pupils from the Cathedral Primary School came for Benediction and a short Blessed Sacrament Procession; there are also two Holy Hours taking place alongside the Rosary, a Mass for peace and the Liturgy of the Hours.

The decoration around the monstrance is quite beautiful. It is there to point to the importance of the Lord present among us; it invites us to pray in His presence.

The 40 Hours continues until Sunday afternoon.
