What is Adoration?
Eucharistic Adoration is the presence of oneself with our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, whether reposed inside the tabernacle, or exposed inside a monstrance.
Adoration allows for personal time to be spent with the real physical presence of Jesus Christ contained in the Eucharist. This is usually done within a period of one hour or otherwise referred to as a “Holy Hour.” Privately one can pray in silent prayer, give praise to God for all His works and grace, and to absorb the peaceful presence of the Lord in our busy, noisy, and sometimes turbulent lives.
Coming to adoration people don’t always have a clear motivation of what they are coming for but know that adoration provides a refuge from the rest of the world for short time surrounded by God’s love and peace.
At Adoration people often bring a Bible or other devotional prayer books, of which some are available in the back of church, to read and other say the Rosary or Divine Mercy chaplet to focus their minds on the true salvation of our Lord. Other may come just to sit or kneel for a moment in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ.
At Adoration, Jesus is waiting for you, so come and experience the presence and peace regardless of where you are in your path through life.
