WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16 – ST. JOHN PAUL II BLESSED MONSTRANCE
On March 2, 2005, a monstrance was taken to Rome & blessed by Pope John Paul II from his room at Gemelli Hospital. He consecrated the vessel to promote Eucharistic Adoration, prayer for priests, and vocations. It was among the final items to receive a papal blessing by John Paul II, who was called by our Lord to his final rest one month later on April 2, 2005.
St. Peter’s is lucky enough to host this remarkable item for Adoration on Wednesday, October 16th from 9am-4pm.
We hope that everyone will come and spend time with the Blessed Sacrament while it is housed in this remarkable item!
