P E RP ETUAL ADORATION
"Let us deepen, through adoration,
drawing upon aids to prayer inspired by
the word of God and the experience of so
many mystics, old and new. The rosary
itself, when it is profoundly understood in
the biblical and christocentric form, will prove a particularly
fitting introduction to Eucharistic contemplation, a
contemplation carried out with Mary as our companion and
guide." St. Pope John Paul II. Needed hours: Tues., 9- 10 A.M.,
Fri., 9-10 A.M ., & 11-12 noon; and Sat., IIA.M. - 12 oon.

Sacrament, or another Catholic altar.
2. Fix a specific date for confession, all of us.
3. Determine to increase our love for God by loving each other
now.
4. Do our best, all of us, to kick gossip out of our lives.
5. Give something away, aU of us, that we treasure.
6. Jabber less, all of us, and converse more sanely, more
happily.
7. Establish a prayer place where we live, with crucifix, and
with quiet the rule.
8. Make some new friends, all of us.
Repair fragile
friendships, all of us.
9. Open our eyes, all of us, to the pain that surrounds us near
and far, and try to heal.
I O. Find out the date of our baptism and shout for joy.
11. Pray, all of us, for those who join the Church at the Easter
Vigil. Find out their names.
12. Pray for the Church, all of us, for the Pope and bishops, and
sisters, deacons, and priests, and fathers and mothers, and
single parents, and struggling families, and for children; for
the elderly among us, and for the lonely, and the homeless ;
and for prisoners, and for those who want desperately to be
found . And pray for forgiveness, all of us, and accept it
when God offers it. When does he offer it? Now. Always.
