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

What Is Eucharistic Adoration?

The Adoration of the Holy Eucharist, or Eucharistic Adoration, is an opportunity for the faithful to pray to Jesus Christ before the Eucharist at their local parish. The term “the faithful” refers to Catholics who wish to express and deepen their love of Christ. But what makes praying during Eucharistic Adoration any different than the prayers you say throughout your daily life?

True, you can pray to God anywhere. God is omnipresent, which means He is everywhere at all times. As the Word of God says in Proverbs 15:3, “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good.” God is always near, and thus, you can always enter into His presence in prayer.

God is also omniscient, which means He knows everything, including your thoughts. King David says in Psalm 139:1-4, “Lord, You have probed me, you know me: You know when I sit and stand; You understand my thoughts from afar. You sift through my travels and my rest; with all my ways You are familiar. Even before a word is on my tongue, Lord, You know it all.”

God’s omnipresence and omniscience are both wonderful truths that Catholics can take comfort in every day, whether at home, work or worshipping at your local parish. But Eucharistic Adoration differs from your daily prayers in one key aspect. Catholics believe the body, blood, soul and divinity are substantially present in the Eucharist. In other words, when you participate in Eucharistic Adoration, you pray and worship Jesus in a more intimate, present and real way.

Prayers for Eucharist Adoration:




“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
