From eight this morning until midnight on Friday we are holding Forty Hours in solidarity with the Dublin Eucharistic Congress.
We really are praying in the heart of the city. I have been impressed by the number of people who have signed up to watch, some have given up a day's work either to come and celebrate the Liturgy of the hours or to watch and pray at odd hours. As one of my parishioners who has signed up to watch through the night said, "God has been so generous to me, how could I not be generous to him".
It is the first time we have done it in any of the Brighton and Hove deanery parishes for forty years. It is bit low key, only one pressed server at the opening Mass this morning, the Office will probably be sung by me and choir mistress but God will provide.
