"An excellent initiative of the Archbishop of Santiago de Chile. We men have left Christ alone in the tabernacle for too long. The doors of many churches are closed or they are open, but no one goes into it. We go inside, and it was awesome for a few minutes and we greeted the Lord. The Lord is not alone, He is in every tabernacle surrounded by angels, who worship Him, except for the people, but not out of duty, reverently bending the knee and prostrate themselves before their King, the only true, good, wise and just ruler.

"With these words the Spanish church historian and Catholic blogger Francisco de la Cigoña welcomed the initiative of the Chilean Primate.
