“(Eucharistic) Adoration itself is an act of witnessing when one sees many gathered in silence before the Lord. Eucharistic Adoration should become part and parcel of our way of being Church.”

Proof Of His Love

“The Eucharist is the bread that gives strength… It is at once the most eloquent proof of His love and the most powerful means of fostering His love in us. He gives Himself every day so that our hearts as burning coals may set afire the hearts of the faithful.”

St. Damien of Molokai

It Is You He Awaits

“Jesus is not on His Eucharistic throne to receive the adorations of the angels and to enjoy the company of the blessed. These He finds in heaven.

But He is on His Eucharistic throne to receive your adorations, to listen to your confidences, and to console and alleviate your sorrows and trials.”

 

(Father Jose Guadalupe Trevino from The Holy Eucharist)

Stick-to-itiveness

I Thirst Tabernacle.rev

“Spiritual practices require commitment and regularity if they are to transform us. Spiritual practices like … adoration before the Blessed Sacrament are journeys, not day trips into the realm of the sacred. They are not hobbies or occasional exercises that depend on our moods or our latest interests. They demand a personal discipline, a personal stick-to-itiveness.”

Bishop Joseph N. Perry

Sign of the Times

“Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is awakening and developing all over the world, and this will help to restore the sacredness of the liturgical celebration of the Mass…. The renewal of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament…is a sign of the times, and a great sign of encouragement.”

Cardinal Marc Quellet

 

 

Linger Instead

“If more Catholics spent more time in Eucharistic adoration, I think two things would happen: many who have abandoned the regular practice of the faith might well rediscover it.  And those who have acquired the bad habit of arriving late for Mass and leaving early might want to linger instead — to spend time with the Lord who thirsts for our Love.”
