Adoro Te Devote – Congress in the City

Adoro Te Devote – Eucharistic Adoration in the Spirit of St Thomas Aquinas

Some of the best loved Eucharistic hymns – Adoro Te Devote, Tantum Ergo, Panis Angelicus – were written by one man, the Dominican friar St Thomas Aquinas. The Dominican friars of St Saviour’s Priory (Dublin), which has been in existence for nearly 800 years, will mark the International Eucharistic Congress by inviting renowned preachers to explain the rich delights of these Eucharistic hymns, all in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, exposed for our veneration. The preachers include Wojciech Giertych OP, the Pope’s personal theologian; Paul Murray OP, a celebrated spiritual writer; John Harris OP, well-known for his ministry to young people; and Terence Crotty OP, a Scripture scholar. The evening events will also include music and silent adoration, and will conclude with the Office of Compline, sung by the Dominican community, and the ancient tradition of the Salve Regina procession. Finally, on Saturday, St Saviour’s will host a day-long festival of Eucharistic adoration. Come and join us, as we contemplate the source and summit of our faith, ‘in which Christ is received, the memory of His Passion is renewed, the soul is filled with grace, and the pledge of future glory is given to us’ (St Thomas Aquinas). All events take place in St Saviour’s Church, Dominick St., Dublin 1.
