Worldwide Hour of Eucharistic Adoration

Now this is a movement just about everyone should be able to get behind:

The Worldwide Hour of Eucharistic Adoration will take place at 7:00 p.m. local time on April 2nd, 2008, the Third Anniversary of Pope John Paul II’s death.

By hosting this hour in time zones throughout the world, this will result in a full calendar day of Eucharistic Adoration in remembrance of Pope John Paul II.

This endeavor will work towards the promotion and education of Eucharistic Adoration worldwide.

Adoration ends with Benediction at 5:00 PM at my parish, but there are three other Perpetual Adoration chapels around that I know of. It'd certainly be nice, though, if any parish that has the capacity for Adoration (i.e. a Monstrance, a valid minister to expose and repose the Blessed Sacrament, and the commitment of at least one person for the hour) were to schedule something for that one hour. Just the thought must send shockwaves through the depths of Hell.
