Pope Francis leads the faithful in the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Pope Francis led the faithful in one hour of the adoration of the blessed Sacrament, the Eucharist, at St. Peter’s Basilica on Sunday. The liturgy was marked by moments of silence, traditional Eucharistic hymns, brief Bible readings; and prayerful meditations on the Eucharist written by Popes Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul II and Benedict XVI. Thousands of the faithful around the world gathered in cathedrals and parishes to take part in the celebration. Sean Patrick Lovett reports. RealAudioMP3
