“Listen closely…for God speaks softly!”
“Adoration means entering the depths of our hearts in communion with the Lord, who makes Himself bodily present in the Eucharist. In the monstrance, He always entrusts Himself to us and asks us to be united with His Presence, with His risen Body.” – Pope Benedict XVI
What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Eucharistic adoration is the act of worshiping God as He is present in the consecrated Eucharist. Since the Last Supper, when Jesus broke the bread and distributed the wine, saying, “This is my "Body” and This is my "Blood,” Catholics have believed that the bread and wine are no longer merely baked wheat and fermented grape juice but the actual living presence of the Second Person of the Trinity.
“Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us.” – St. Alphonsus Liguori
