Perpetual Adoration In Boston!

After 40 Years perpetual adoration of the Eucharist will return to Boston! Two billboards will be seen one on Brighton and the other on East Boston each displaying the Eucharist in a monstrance with the words: “The Son’s rays for your soul.” St. Clement Eucharistic Shrine on Boylston Street currently has six hours of adoration a day and on August 15th Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley will offer Mass on the feast of the Assumption, at the shrine and this mark the beginning of perpetual adoration, and the Eucharist will be in the monstrance for veneration anytime apart from during scheduled masses. The effort to return perpetual adoration to Boston is in response to the Pope’s year of priests. The idea is to create a place of prayer for vocations and the sanctity of priests. Tim Van Damm coordinator of the effort to return perpetual adoration has called it “a leap of faith” on the part of St. Clement Shrine. Van Damm has been on two radio shows and is going to be on “Catholic TV” August 4th, at 10:30a.m. Van Damm is asking the people of Boston to spread the word and is hoping to get enough support to purchases advertising space on the MTBA.
