Eucharistic Adoration

“I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry,

and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” -Jesus Christ (John 6:35)

“Love the Eucharist, Adore the Eucharist, Celebrate the Eucharist.” -Blessed John Paul II

“I encourage all of you to discover ever more fully in the Eucharist, the sacrament of Christ’s sacrificial love, the inspiration and strength needed to work ever more generously for the spread of God’s Kingdom and the growth of the civilization of love” -Pope Benedict XVI


On the road to Emmaus (as recounted in Luke 24), Jesus’s disciples learned an important lesson: that their hearts could burn with knowledge about the Lord but yet they couldn’t come to recognize Him until they met Jesus in the breaking of bread.  In other words, one’s religious education will never be complete if one doesn’t move from learning aboutJesus and His Church to knowing Jesus personally and intimately, most especially through His Real Presence in the Eucharist, within the heart of His Church.  Let us come and adore Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Eucharist! And, let us pray that we can be faithful witnesses to Jesus’s Eucharistic kingdom, so that through us Jesus can draw into full communion (1 Cor. 10:17) our separated brothers and sisters in Christ as well as those who do not know Him as their Lord and Savior!

Before you go, please take a moment to remember Jesus in the Most Holy Eucharist…



“In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment, there is a need for silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host. Be assiduous in the prayer of adoration and teach it to the faithful. It is a source of comfort and light, particularly to those who are suffering…I heartily recommend to the Church’s pastors and to the People of God the practice of Eucharistic Adoration, both individually and in community” -Pope Benedict XVI

“The hidden treasure… is Jesus himself, the Kingdom in person.  In the Sacred Host, he is present, the true treasure, always waiting for us.  Only by adoring this presence do we learn how to receive him properly-we learn the reality of communion.” -Pope Benedict XVI

“It was not until 1973, when we began our daily Holy Hour that our community started to grow and blossom.” – Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

“What wonderful majesty! What stupendous condescension! O sublime humility! That the Lord of the whole universe, God and the Son of God, should humble Himself like this under the form of a little bread, for our salvation.” – St. Francis of Assisi
