In the Heart of Rome

By Sr. M. Speranza Alejandro, PDDM

The extraordinary apostolate of the Pious Disciples dramatizes the call of the Eucharist: to give our bodies for the life of the world. Sr. Speranza shares her vision with us.

Two years ago I started my mission in the Vatican City, the heart of Rome. As a member of the Pious Disciples of the Divine Master involved in the Eucharistic Priestly-Liturgical apostolate, I join my sisters in taking turns of prayer before our Eucharistic Lord in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, inside the Basilica of St. Peter. Every morning after the first mass celebrated in this chapel, there is a solemn exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. We are eighteen international sisters and we go in pairs (like the disciples sent by the Lord for the mission) every one and a half hour presenting humanity before the Blessed Sacrament. As we pray we present all the needs of humankind to the Lord and the needs for justice of all categories of people.
