WHAT IS EUCHARISTIC ADORATION?

Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. 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. 

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!”

The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet Him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease (Catechism Catholic Church; 1380).

The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth. Each moment that you spend  with Jesus will deepen your union with Him  and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven,  and will help bring about everlasting peace on earth.

– St. Teresa of Calcutta
