To the editor:

What an inspiring and wonderful experience we had with Pope Francis. How amazing to see the thousands who traveled many miles and waited hours for even a glimpse of the Holy Father as he drove by.

Yet isn’t something wrong when we have Jesus, Himself, present on our altars for Adoration and the majority of us do not stop our “busy” lives for even an hour for a personal visit with Him?

How meaningful would be a 15-minute stop during a lunch hour or senior citizens who meet friends weekly or even daily for coffee, but forget a weekly or monthly holy hour with our Lord?

If we truly believe Jesus is present in the Eucharist, shouldn’t special prayerful time be a way of keeping our faith alive?
