You may remember, when growing up, going to church for 40 hours devotion during Lent. You were asked to give one hour of your time with the Eucharist.

Exposition is adoring and honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. As Catholics, we believe that Christ is truly present in the Eucharist and should be given extra adoration and devotion.

Jesus waits for us in the Blessed Sacrament. He waits for our little acts of faith and adoration. We can offer Him our love, thanksgiving, repentance, reparation and charity as we contemplate — His Divine Majesty — in the Blessed Sacrament.

St. Alphonsus Liguori wrote: “Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the Sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us”.

We all work hard each day, each week, each year doing the best we can for ourselves and those around us. Allotting some quiet time with Christ can fortify us in our daily tasks.

Jesus is always there to hear your prayers. There is something very special in those private moments during an hour of Eucharistic Adoration.  It is your “alone time” with Jesus. Using this “alone time” away from your daily routines, will help you focus your attention where it belongs; with Jesus. Quiet prayer, in His Holy Presence, will bring you peace of mind and soul.

“Alone time” can be used for reflection in which we re-call our spiritual teachings from throughout our lives. We can include meditation of the past Sunday’s homily.  We owe this time to ourselves.  It gives us the opportunity to realize that our God is wonderful, awesome and powerful. In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus challenged his disciples, and therefore us, to spend time with Him in prayer.

Schedule your “alone time” with Jesus.
