Adoration

Proclaim The Second Lifting
"When I am lifted up from the earth I will draw all men to Myself."

-John 12:32

 

 

 

The First Lifting

was on the Cross

when He showed the depth

of His Love for us

 

 

 

The Second Lifting

is in the Monstrance
where we show the depth

of our love for Him

The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth.
Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven,
and will help bring about everlasting peace on earth.

- Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Every time we adore the Lord Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament grace is poured out on the world and He is drawing men to Himself. We are bringing JOY to the Heart of God by returning our little love to Him and we are helping to save souls.

One day before her Holy Hour, Blessed Dina Belanger saw a multitude of souls on the brink of Hell. After her holy hour she saw the same multitude resting in the Hand of God.

Now, I've heard some people say that Adoration is like getting a suntan. You just need to BE there and you are transformed by the 'Son'.  There is some truth to this in the sense that our mere presence gives pleasure to the Lord and He bestows grace on us and the world because of it. However, it's doubtful that Blessed Dina Belanger helped save a multitude of souls just by being there physically. She also had to be present spiritually, mentally, emotionally.... and strive to give constant attentive, adoration, and love to the Lord. She had to strive to authentically adore Him.

But how does one adore? It seems whenever we sit down to pray distractions assail us. How can I use my adoration time well - for the glory of God and the benefit of my soul and the souls of others? Its good to have a plan of action.

Below are some methods you can use to make the most of your precious time in Adoration.

Offering Jesus love for LOVE

St. Mother Teresa

The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth. Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven, and will help bring about everlasting peace on earth.

St. John Paul II

The best, the most effective, and the surest way of bringing lasting peace on earth is through the great power of Eucharistic adoration.

St. Edith Stein
The Lord is present in the tabernacle in his divinity and his humanity. He is not there for himself, but for us: for it is his joy to be with us. He knows that we, being as we are, need to have him personally near. As a result, anyone with normal thoughts and feelings will naturally be drawn to spend time with him, whenever possible and as much as possible.
St. John Bosco

Make frequent visits to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and the devil will be powerless against you.

Pope Benedict XVI

Only by adoring this presence do we learn how to receive him properly – we learn the reality of communion, we learn the Eucharistic celebration from the inside.

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen

The greatest love story of all time is contained in a tiny white Host.

Pope Francis

One cannot know the Lord without being in the habit of adoring, of adoring in silence. To waste time — if I may say it — before the Lord, before the mystery of Jesus Christ. To adore, there in the silence, in the silence of adoration. He is the Lord, and I adore Him.

St. Teresa of Avila

For me You remain in the most Blessed Sacrament. To converse with You, O King of glory, no third person is needed. You are always ready in the Sacrament of the Altar to give audience to all. All who desire You always find You there, and converse with You face to face. Christians, this is the hour to defend your King and to keep Him company in the profound isolation in which He finds Himself. How few, O Lord, are the servants who remain faithful to You! Here on earth it is impossible to perform a more meritorious act than visiting Jesus often in the Holy Eucharist."

St. Peter Julian Eymard

Look upon the hour of adoration assigned to you as an hour in paradise. Go to your adoration as one would to heaven, to the divine banquet. You will then long for that hour and hail it with joy. Take delight in fostering a longing for it in your heart. Tell yourself, "In four hours, in two hours, in one hour, our Lord will give me an audience of grace and love. He has invited me; he is waiting for me; he is longing for me.
