El Papa Franscisco hace referencia específica al versículo 5-27 de la Epístola del Apostol Pablo a Los Efesios que dice (ES):

5:27 – a fin de presentársela a sí mismo, una iglesia gloriosa, que no tuviese mancha ni arruga ni cosa semejante, sino que fuese santa y sin mancha. 

A fin de mostrarse como gloriosa la Iglesia toda debe mostrarse pura, sin mancha y sin “arrugas” ni pliegues. La convocatoria oró por los que padecen el horror de la guerra, los esclavizados, las víctimas del trabajo esclavo, del tráfico humano y de las crisis económicas.  Es la primera vez que la Iglesia Católica hace tal tipo de convocatoria masiva. Si bien se desconoce cuántas personas atendieron al llamado a la “Adoración del Cuerpo de Cristo” se conocen algunas cifras: en Estados Unidos la siguieron 243 parroquias, 163 en La India, 56 en Brasil y 50 en Italia.

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis led Roman Catholics on Sunday in the first worldwide “Holy Hour,” in which participants prayed at the same time around the globe for those suffering from war, slave labor, human trafficking and the economic crisis.

The Vatican asked Catholics to join him between 5-6 p.m. Rome time (11 a.m – 12 p.m EDT) in what is known as a Eucharistic adoration — praying before a consecrated communion host.

They were asked to gather in cathedrals, neighborhood parishes and monasteries to pray for two general intentions penned by the pope, who prayed in St. Peter’s Basilica.

One was for those “who still suffer slavery and who are victims of war, human trafficking, drug running and slave labor” as well as for the “unemployed, the elderly, migrants, the homeless, prisoners and those who experience marginalization.”

The other was for the 1.2 billion member Church itself and that it be “without stain or blemish,” an apparent allusion to scandals that have undermined its credibility, such as the sexual abuse of children by clergy.

A Vatican official said it was “the first time in the history of the Church” that such an event was taking place. The Vatican said it was impossible to estimate immediately how many people took part.
