In 2005, Pope John Paul II blessed six vessels, one for each inhabited continent. The vessels, called monstrances, are sacred objects to hold Holy Communion. They are used in Eucharistic Adoration, prayer in the presence of Jesus Christ in the form of the Eucharist. Tonight at 7:00 p.m., the Traveling Monstrance for Vocations will make it’s first stop at Our Lady of Holy Spirit Center in Norwood where parishioners will gather “to invite God’s calling as they determine the course of their lives: if they’ll marry or have children, or enter religious life, or become a lay minister.” The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has scheduled the Traveling Monstrance for Vocations for services at 7 other area churches over the next 18 days. Today's Enquirer article has the complete schedule.
