Some may remember when they were growing up going to church for 40 hours devotion during Lent in which you were asked to give one hour of your time with the Eucharist.
Exposition is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. During Eucharistic Adoration, we worship the Eucharistic Jesus. As Catholics, we believe that Christ is truly present in the Eucharist and should be given the same adoration and devotion that is accorded to Christ.
Jesus waits for us in the Blessed Sacrament. He waits for our little Acts of faith, adoration, love, thanksgiving, repentance, reparation and charity that we can offer Him as we contemplate — His Divine Majesty — in the Blessed Sacrament. (CathoilcChurch.org).
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 can all use that kind of time. We all work hard each day, each week, each year doing the best we can for ourselves and those around us.
God is always there to hear our prayers but there is something just a little more special in those private moments during your hour of Eucharistic Adoration. It is your “alone time” with God. And, we can all use alone time away from our daily routines in which we focus our attention on more than our pressing needs.
Alone time is a time of reflection in which we can re-call our spiritual teachings from throughout our lives even including the past Sunday’s homily. We owe this time to ourselves. It gives us the opportunity to realize how wonderful, powerful and awesome God is and the importance of taking up Jesus’ challenge to be like him.
Join us. Parishioners sit quietly focused on the altar looking on God’s presence on display. Rosaries are being prayed and bibles are being read. Some people sit in quiet meditation thinking about their life or their day, their loved ones, their blessings and the challenges in their lives.
