Opening of the Quarant'Ore

Bishop John Arnold celebrating 5.30pm Mass this evening at the beginning of the Forty Hours' devotion (often known by its italian name as 'Quarant'Ore'). During this time the Cathedral will be open continuously day and night for prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. In accordance with the Holy Father's will, this time is intended to foster devotion to Our Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament, and to reflect upon how the Eucharist transforms our lives and our world.

I would like to congratulate those at Westminster Cathedral who organised this 40 Hours. A most most spiritually uplifting event which gave public witness to the Real Presence of Our Blessed Lord in Victoria Street as well as in the Cathedral.

Thank you - I know it will bring many blessings on those who were there, and an all our diocesan family.
