“I was missing myself faith before Jesus, before the presence of Jesus. In the silent and peaceful prayer which requires me to fully open myself to God, folly open my heart and just be willing to receive him and offer my whole self to him because he’s always there, his love is always there”.

Bernard Marusic
"He is with me always , in everything that I do and the adoration is beautiful, a physical reminder of the Lord presents both with me, spiritually but physically”.

For the next 40 days, this church in Rome, which isn’t too far away from St. Peter’s Square, will leave its doors open 24 hours a day. It has been organized by the Catholic movement Jesus Youth.

People from all over the world, particularly young people, are taking turns making sure there is also someone in the presence of the Eucharist. Groups come from the United Kingdom, Austria, Switzerland and Germany. They will take turns reciting prayers every 6 hours. Other teens who live in Rome will also attend.

Priest

“We thought us these adoration for 40 days as time as purification, as time of renewing our energy and then going for go to the world”.

Anna Born
“For me is very important to do not only the physical fasting but also the spiritual fasting. You can really get away from bad habits or from things that keep us away from God and turn to God’s things”.
The minds behind this grand initiative want to pray specifically for the pope’s intentions, the situation in the West and unity among Christians.
