Eucharistic Adoration: The Light of Christ

07-14-2019Eucharistic Adoration

Winter brings darkness, cold, and sometimes a great deal of snow. The lack of sunlight and the monotony of our days can cause many people to lose hope. Yet Jesus promises to be our light and our salvation. He promises to guide our paths and that the darkness will not overcome us. In Eucharistic Adoration we come before the Lord of Heaven and Earth, the Lord who was not afraid to stand as a light in the darkness. He remains with us to strengthen our hearts to persevere when all appears dark and we feel lost. He remains with His children to remind them "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."—John 1:5

Eucharistic Adoration: How To Pray Like Jesus

04-28-2019Eucharistic Adoration

The book of Genesis describes how God worked for six days, creating the heavens and the earth and how on the seventh day He rested. Likewise, Jesus spent His days ministering to the crowds, feeding the hungry, and healing the sick, yet He drew His strength by frequently taking time to be alone with His Father in prayer. Jesus teaches us that in order to be fruitful in ministry, in order to "be" for others we must first receive love and strength from God our Father in prayer. In Eucharistic Adoration we too can take time to be alone with God—to allow Him to fill us with His strength and His love. The love we give to others is only what we have first received from God. In Adoration we receive the grace necessary to be faithful and fruitful for the Kingdom of God.

Perhaps Adoration can seem counter-intuitive. All day long at work and in school we are expected to pay attention and to be productive. We can even begin to measure success by how much we are able to accomplish.

What the Magi Teach Us

01-06-2019Eucharistic Adoration

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all of your heart.”—Jeremiah 29:13 Today the Church celebrates the feast of the Epiphany—the manifestation of Jesus as the Christ or ‘Anointed one of God’ to all the world. The Magi teach us a great deal about how we ought to approach Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration. First, they approached with faith, recognizing that this was no ordinary child but rather the Son of God.
