These names comprise a wonderful Vatican dream fantasy football team with four high quality substitutes, gathering together to form the 'First International Conference on Eucharistic Adoration, held in Rome, from June 20 to June 23, 2011, with the intention of promoting the desire of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church to see Perpetual Adoration spread to Parishes and Dioceses around the world.'
Perpetual Adoration is an ambitious and marvellous idea and I, for one, have no doubt that as soon as the Paypal button becomes active, Bishops from all over the United Kingdom will be grabbing their Diocesan Visa cards quicker than you can say "secure payment method". While we are at it, though, here is an interesting Independent article on the (speaking personally) hitherto unknown, Cardinal Peter Turkson. I say this because with the exception of Sr Joseph and Mother Adela Galdino, one of those names above might, perhaps, might be the next Pope, but we shouldn't think about that really because we have the great Pope Benedict XVI, now reigning gloriously! Long may he reign!
