Eucharistic Adoration

Monstrance 2015Saturdays (2-3pm)

Just what is it and what should it mean for me? If you are middle-aged or younger, you most likely have not experienced it. The body of Christ-a consecrated Host-is placed in a small receptacle (called a Luna) and brought from the tabernacle to the altar and placed on display in a golden stand (Monstrance).  A quiet time thus begins. He is right there and we are able to talk to Him and think about Him. He sees us and is certainly aware of our love for Him. This special time, away from the busyness of life and alone with our thoughts, makes us more aware of Jesus’ love and His expectations of us. Certain prayers need not be said. If you feel inclined to read Scripture or pray the rosary, do so. Some prefer  just to be in God’s presence.  How long should you visit? There is no set time. Maybe just stop in church and say “hello” to the Lord.  ADORATION will take place here on Saturdays from 2pm to 3pm, except on Holy Saturday. read more
