121 hours of ‘non-stop’ prayer during WYD - From the 16th to the 21st of August, a great human chain will pray for vocations
Whatever the hour of the day, from 16 to 21 August, there will be someone praying for WYD and its fruits. This is the aim of the Chain of Eucharistic Adoration to begin August 16th in the chapel at the Madrid Seminary and continue for a total of 121 hours.
More than 300 communities and 40 Diocese of Spain and different parts of the world have joined this chain of prayer which will continue until WYD concludes.
The Seminary chapel in
Madrid will be open daily for prayer before the Most Holy Sacrament*, and each
hour will be led by a different diocese and its pastor, except at nighttimes or
during the acts presided over by the Holy Father. At these times, hundreds of
contemplative monks will offer prayers to our Lord from their monasteries in
order to maintain the perpetual Adoration.
The cloistered monasteries of Madrid have also joined the chain and will remain open throughout WYD for all those who wish to enter and pray. In addition, more than 50 of the city’s churches will open their doors all day and many will have activities of adoration led by various movements and institutions of the Church.
