Stations and Benediction

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: It has been a tradition to have each Wednesday during Lent Stations of the Cross followed by Benediction.  It is announced in the weekly bulletin as: Stations of the Cross and Benediction.  This is not Eucharistic Adoration. Acceptable?


A: Yes, you should be fine.

We are not allowed to expose the Blessed Sacrament just for the sake of a blessing, but if you include the traditional hymns and prayers, you are following a time-honored custom.
