Bring Me your burdens.
Jesus said: “Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Mt 11:28-30)
“When the Sisters are exhausted, up to their eyes in work; when all seems to go awry, they spend an hour in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. This practice has never failed to bear fruit: they experience peace and strength.”
~Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
The adoration team is a dedicated group of adorers who are happy to share and explain more about just what their devotion entails. We are always looking to add Adorers, so if you are willing to give one hour a week to Jesus, please let us know. We ask you to prayerfully consider signing up for 1 hour per week to pray before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
Eucharistic Adoration is adoring the True Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ - His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity - in the Holy Eucharist. Because we believe that Christ is truly made present in the consecration of the Eucharist, we give the Blessed Sacrament the same honor and reverence accorded to Christ himself.
“Could you not watch one hour with me?” – Matthew 26:40
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. The Eucharist is a priceless treasure: By not only celebrating the Eucharist, but also praying before It outside of Mass, we are enabled to make contact with the very wellsprings of Grace…"
A Holy Hour is the devotion of spending an hour in Eucharistic Adoration. Mother Theresa of Calcutta made a Holy Hour every day and encouraged others to follow her example. One may obtain a plenary indulgence for making a Holy Hour.
During a Holy Hour, one simply contemplates the mystery of the Word made flesh (John 1:14).
It is said that when the 19th century French priest, St. Jean Vianney, was asked what he said to Jesus in Eucharist Adoration, he replied, “Nothing, I look at Him and He looks at me.”
The following prayers and devotions may help spark contemplation or conversation with Christ:
- Reading Scripture
- Praying the Rosary or Divine Mercy Chaplet
