Adoration

Jesus says I am the was the truth and the life. One of the most important ways that our churches provide is Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Here is an excerpt from Perpetual Adoration handbook of the Poor Clares.

“In our self-centered culture and classic American emphasis on work, we often feel we have to accomplish something during our times of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. We rate our experience by how ‘good’ our prayer was, how heartfelt our devotion was, or how focused we could remain. Yet prayer and contemplation are fundamentally God’s work, in which we are invited to participate. We need only to give Him the opening, and He will do the rest. By coming to adoration, we are handing Him the keys to our hearts, allowing the rays of His love and grace to bathe our souls in the light of His Presence, as the rays of the sun bathe our bodies in light. If we can take the time to pull away from the busyness and distractions of life and just sit at His feet, He will lead us.”

—Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration, p. 33

May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen
