Through their three-year eucharistic revival, the U.S. bishops are calling on Catholics to “enter more deeply by faith and love” into the mystery of mysteries, the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. Parishes are offering opportunities for doing just that.

At my parish, St. Gabriel in Woodlawn, we are encouraged by our pastor, Father Canisius Tah, to commit to spending at least an hour before the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament every First Friday of the month. That began Sept. 1. The goal, he said, is to make sure there is always someone with the Lord during the exposition that begins at the end of the 9 a.m. Mass in the parish annex chapel. It ends at 7 p.m. with evening prayer and benediction.
