Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. It is the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us. During Eucharistic Adoration, the Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance. 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. If we allow it, 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.
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?
"The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic worship. Jesus waits for us in this Sacrament of Love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet him in adoration and in contemplation that is full of faith and ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world. May our adoration never cease.” - Pope John Paul II
