VATICAN CITY — The Vatican is hosting two hours of eucharistic adoration “in reparation for abuses committed by priests and for the healing of this wound within the church.”

The service in St. Peter’s Basilica this Saturday will feature an hour of silent adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, an hour of prayer and meditation, and a solemn blessing at the end.

CNS correspondent John Thavis reports that the Vatican hasn't publicized the event. Invitations were sent by e-mail and word of mouth.

Thavis says the event is being organized by "Catholic university students in Rome. "
