This just in form ND Professor of Theology

On his blog and in a few articles, Fr. Richard McBrian stated "Notwithstanding Pope Benedict XVI's personal endorsement of eucharistic adoration and the sporadic restoration of the practice in the archdiocese of Boston and elsewhere, it is difficult to speak favorably about the devotion today.

Now that most Catholics are literate and even well-educated, the Mass is in the language of the people (i.e, the vernacular), and its rituals are relatively easy to understand and follow, there is little or no need for extraneous eucharistic devotions. The Mass itself provides all that a Catholic needs sacramentally and spiritually.

Eucharistic adoration, perpetual or not, is a doctrinal, theological, and spiritual step backward, not forward."

Here is three paragraphs is is the problem with the Church. I am stunned to the point of not having the words to explain HOW wrong this is other than to say THIS is ANOTHER reason why my son can NEVER attend Notre Dame....WOW
