During Holy Week, two U.S. bishops called on Catholics in their respective dioceses to grow closer to Christ through greater reverence for the Eucharist.
Bishop Robert Morlino, at the chrism Mass for the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin, asked that all Catholics be encouraged by their priests to receive the Eucharist kneeling and on the tongue. In the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska, Bishop James Conley issued a pastoral letter on Holy Thursday encouraging his flock to make Eucharistic adoration an integral part of their lives.
