Liturgy, Eucharistic Adoration, and Prayer
Our Eucharistic Lord waits for us in every tabernacle and monstrance, and He longs for us to be in His presence. Come
spend some time with Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration, for Christ’s Eucharistic presence is “the source and summit of the Christian life” (CCC1324).
A VERY ANCIENT art, practiced at one time by all Christians, is the technique known as lectio divina – a slow, contemplative praying of the Scriptures which enables the Bible, the Word of God, to become a means of union with God. This ancient practice has been kept alive in the Christian monastic tradition, and is one of the precious treasures of Benedictine monastics and oblates. Together with the Liturgy and daily manual labor, time set aside in a special way for lectio divina enables us to discover in our daily life an underlying spiritual rhythm. Within this rhythm we discover an increasing ability to offer more of ourselves and our relationships to the Father, and to accept the embrace that God is continuously extending to us in the person of his Son Jesus Christ.
