What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Eucharistic Adoration is an expression of our love for Jesus, who loves us so much that He never wants to leave us and so stays with us day and night in the Blessed Sacrament. Pope John Paul II in his first encyclical letter, Redemptor Hominis, says that Eucharistic adoration is the most fundamental duty in the life of the Christian and that liturgical celebration of the Eucharist and private worship of the Eucharist complement each other. He states: “Our communal worship at Mass must go together with our personal worship of Jesus in Eucharistic adoration in order that our love may be complete.”
What is Perpetual Adoration?
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is simply our response to Jesus’ love for us, whereby each of us is willing to spend a quiet holy hour of prayer in His Eucharistic Presence once a week on a regular basis that we may have perpetual (seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day) exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
What Do I Do During This Hour?
The hour is spent anyway you want:
- reading the Holy Bible
- praying the Rosary
- with your favorite prayer book
- speaking to Jesus heart to heart, as one does with a friend
- or you may want to sit and enjoy the peace that comes from simply being with the One who loves you the most, Jesus
