Forty Hours Devotion in Chicago, 2007

From Friday, September 14, to Sunday, September 16, 2007, the Shrine of Christ the King had a Forty Hours Devotion in thanksgiving for His Holiness' motu proprio, "Summorum Pontificum." The Forty Hours Devotion took place over a period of 3 days. Whether in a contiguous period of forty hours or whether the Blessed Sacrament is reposed during the night, the same liturgical privileges and indulgences apply. The Institute was particularly blessed as this was the first time Holy Mass was celebrated in the gutted church building since its closure in 2002 and the first Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form offered their since 1969. The Institute is in charge of restoring its interior, for which it needs to raise all the funds.
