THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT
“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,”
– Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Private prayer and reflection is the basis for Eucharistic Adoration. All are welcome to stop by and pray for a few minutes, a half hour, or for an extended period of time.
St. John Paul II in his encyclical “Redemptor Hominis” (Redeemer of Man) called upon the whole People of God to make Jesus the very center of the universe and history (3). In the same encyclical he says the Eucharist is the center and summit of sacramental life…the Eucharist builds the Church (47, 48). In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus asked the disciples to keep watch at the Garden of Gethsemane while he prayed. When he returned and found them sleeping, Jesus says “so could you not watch with me one hour” (Matt 26:49). The gospels talk of Jesus praying and seeking his Father’s will for his life. We see pictures of St John Paul II and Mother Teresa praying before the Eucharist. St. John Vianney spent most of his long hours in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.
There are aids to guide you if you are not familiar with Eucharistic Adoration. Two Adorers are scheduled to be present each hour.
Children and youth also are welcome at their own times; all are encouraged to spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
