Charlotte diocese brings out Christ during Democratic convention

St. Patrick's Cathedral holds Vigil for Liberty
While President Barack Obama accepts the Democratic Party's nomination
for the 2012 presidency, a Charlotte parish will be holding a prayer vigil. The
vigil’s organizers hope the prayer event will help advance “thoughtful reflection”
among everyone, including politicians, reporters, and protesters at
the Democratic National Convention.
The B.C. Catholic has a Catholic News Agency story about the Diocese of Charlotte holding a special prayer vigil with Eucharistic adoration during the Democratic National Convention:
“The Catholic Diocese of Charlotte is pleased to offer a gift to our nation, and that is over 80 hours of Eucharistic adoration and prayer for our country,” Bishop Peter J. Jugis said in his homily for the vigil’s Sept. 4 Mass.
“We are keeping our attention and our hearts fixed on Jesus,” he said.
The vigil began the morning of Monday, Sept. 3, and will run through 9 p.m. Sept. 6.
