Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves “the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us”.
During Eucharistic Adoration, we “watch and wait”, we remain “silent” in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist … By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.
In its fullest essence … Eucharistic Adoration is “God and Man reaching out for each other, at the same time!”
Jesus waits for us in the Blessed Sacrament. He waits for our little Acts of faith, adoration, love, thanksgiving, repentance, reparation and charity that we can offer Him as we contemplate — His Divine Majesty — in the Blessed Sacrament.
My heart is full of gratitude to all of you who have signed up for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
In order to aid you on your journey of adoration, we will be offering 2 seminars on “Forms of Prayer”. These forms will translate beautifully into one’s time spent in adoration. The seminars will be held from 7-8 pm on Thursday, December 7 (in the parish hall), and Monday, December 18 (in the church basement).
Come learn how to engage more deeply in adoration.
Thank you for your generous response to the Lord!
Holy hours are the Roman Catholic devotional tradition of spending an hour in Eucharistic Adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. The bishops have created a variety of holy hours that focus our prayer to Jesus Christ on peace, life, vocations, and other topics that are at the heart of the life of the Church and the world.
