RENEWING ALL THINGS
"Can. 215 The Christian faithful are at liberty freely to found and direct associations for purposes of charity or piety or for the promotion of the Christian vocation in the world and to hold meetings for the common pursuit of these purposes."
The League of the Blessed Sacrament is an association of the Catholic faithful who desire to deepen or begin to develop a Eucharistic spirituality. The Associates of the League also seek to advance greater unity in the Church through devotion to the Blessed Sacrament under the mantle of the Holy Father through prayer and fasting for him. The source of this unity and prayer life is found most abundantly in the Real Presence of our Lord in the Sacred Host. The League, following the admonition of the Second Vatican Council which said that, “They (the lay faithful) should all remember that they can reach all men (and women) and contribute to the salvation of the world by public worship and prayer as well as by penance and voluntary acceptance of the labors and hardships of life whereby they become like the suffering Christ” (Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity Apostolicam Actuositatem, Ch. IV, no. 16), provides an opportunity for the laity to sanctify the world through a growing devotion to the Blessed Sacrament – the source and summit of our unity.
