Forty Hours Devotion at Grotto this Weekend

One of the most beautiful events at Assumption Grotto is it's annual Forty Hours Devotion. A flyer in the bulletin this past weekend explained:

The 40 Hours Devotion remembers that traditional "forty-hour period" from our Lord's burial until the resurrection. The Forty Hours Devotion nurtures the love of the faithful for our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, three special dimensions have also surrounded this devotion: the protection from evil and temptation; reparation for our own sins and for the Poor Souls in Purgatory; and deliverance from political, material, or spiritual calamities. Here the faithful implore our Lord to pour forth His abundant graces not only for themselves, but also their neighbors, not only for their own personal needs, but for those of the world
Please come to Assumption Grotto for this beautiful devotion, rarely seen today.

There is a potluck as well at the closing ceremony, which is at 3:00pm Sunday. You may want to come to the Noon Mass and do some afternoon adoration, then stay for the potluck.

The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church; it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!
