Eucharist Adoration Ministry, First Friday 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” we know that the bread and wine are no longer merely baked wheat and fermented grape juice but the actual living Presence of the Blessed Sacrament. “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 us,” [St. Alphonsus Ligouri, and Italian Bishop and Doctor of the Church]. “adoration of the blessed Sacrament is important and becomes an inexhaustible source of holiness.

    It is pleasant to spend time with Christ, to lie close to His breast like the beloved Disciple and to feel the infinite love present in His heart.” [St. John Paul II]. You can speak to Jesus, aware that you are in His Presence and tell Him what is in your mind. Listen for His Response. St. Louis de Montfort used to stop into Church often, sometimes before and after school, and say a prayer before the Blessed Sacrament [he was a French Roman Catholic Priest and Confessor]. It is good to spend time, an hour, in the Lord’s Presence.

    He waits for us patiently to visit Him. Jesus says: “Come to Me all you who labor and are burdened and I will give you rest.” There have been many Eucharistic Miracles over the years, as proof of Jesus’ Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament. Please join us for an hour to make Reparation to our Lord, for the Sins of the world.
