COULD YOU NOT KEEP WATCH FOR ONE HOUR?

                                                                                    (Mark 14:37)

 

Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. In the many churches that have this adoration, the Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and often the night. The term “perpetual adoration” designates the practically uninterrupted adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. 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. Eucharistic Adoration is “God and man reaching out for each other at the same time”. Christ’s great love for us was shown when He was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist. Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return?

Not ready to commit? Visit anyway, anytime for any length of time! “The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you spend on Earth.” – Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta –
