Since Fr. Anthony Glaysher moved to the parish of Ryde on the Isle of Wight last Autumn, he has worked tirelessly in restoring the “worshipping community” and has been faithful in restoring a sense of devotion and tradition to the parish, including the implementation of the Benedictine reforms. He is starting the Traditional Lenten Devotion of Quarant Ore.
Last week the Holy Father very strongly encouraged adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at a plenary meeting of The Congregation of Divine Worship.
I would hope to follow Father Glaysher's example but I am not sure my people would want to come and pray. How do I move towards 40 hours in a small urban parish where people are afraid to come out at night?
