The National Catholic Register wrote a story for the October 12-18, 2008 issue on the growing nationwide trend of Eucharistic devotion on campus. Part of the article focuses on Belmont AbbeyCollege in North Carolina, which opened a perpetual adoration chapel on campus this semester. Including Belmont, other Newman Guide
colleges with adoration are mentioned: The Catholic University of America, Thomas Aquinas College, and Benedictine College. The Cardinal Newman Society President, Patrick Reilly, is quoted several times in the piece. “The current generation, or those who have received catechesis in recent years, may have had very little sense of the wonder of the Eucharist brought to them during their education,” Reilly said. “At the same time, both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI have displayed such a strong devotion to the Eucharist that it’s become very attractive to young people. It’s very often younger priests and newer students who are expressing the strongest interest.” Source: National Catholic Register
