ORDER THAT FOCUSES ON BLESSED SACRAMENT SEES PHENOMENAL GROWTH
By Michael H. Brown
Last weekend I spoke at a center owned by the Adorno Fathers in Ramsey, New Jersey. There I met the rector, Father Michael Marotta. He explained that the charism of his tiny order is adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
The result has been an explosion in vocations. While there are only 45 Adorno fathers worldwide, there are currently 200 seminarians. We just ran a similar item on how the archbishop of Atlanta says Eucharistic adoration has spurred a leap in vocations in his archdiocese from 8 to 61 in 15 years! Hopefully this message will get through to the many dioceses that not only neglect the Blessed Sacrament but even actively discourage such devotion. Such dioceses will soon run out of priests -- and will be fertile ground for missionaries like those of the Adorno Fathers .
