How to Receive

02-17-2019Eucharistic Adoration

“Be still and know that I am God.”—Psalm 46:10

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.

Understandably then, coming into a silent chapel and sitting before God in the Eucharist can seem to go against everything within us. Yet, God teaches us that to receive we do not have to do or give anything, we simply need to be open. God’s grace is not earned but it is not “cheap” either. He asks only for a heart ready to receive the good things He has in store for us.
