Our Lord Deserves It! Our Church and Our World Need It!

The greatest crisis facing the Catholic Church today, in the minds of many observers, is the wholesale failure of many Catholics, to believe that Jesus is really, substantially and truly present, Body Blood Soul and Divinity in the Blessed Sacrament.


To spend an hour in Adoration with Him in silence helps me to hear His whisper of love and peace.

CANASTOTA, NY - There are a number of things our Church must do to correct this horrible reality. Let me highlight one - promotion of and participation in Eucharistic Adoration.

May the following words of those who come to spend an hour with Him each week encourage others to go, visit and believe:

Adoration has the peace the world cannot give. It's like you're in a bubble of grace. The pressures and anxieties I bring in with me are diminished while I'm in here. When I leave, I feel reassured and renewed. The more I go to Adoration the more time I need. An hour is not enough. After nearly a week I'm hungry for this oasis of peace.
 
When I think of all the hours that Jesus is in Church alone, I am so happy to spend this time with Him.
 
Adoration is a powerful time of prayer and healing. It is a time of relaxing with Jesus. It is an addiction - I find that I now feel "empty" if I miss a time of adoration. Adoration is a weekly routine to be in touch with Jesus who loves us and wants to hear our requests as God's own adopted children.
 
For me Adoration is peace and tranquility - closeness to Jesus that cannot be described. It brings tears to my eyes.

At first I came to adore Jesus because He should never be left alone but soon I realized I am the one who benefits. I come week after week no matter what mood I am in. Jesus is there for me. I sometimes come when I don't want to come but Jesus is always welcoming me. He listens and He gives me strength and peace and happiness.He gets me through the week.

My hour of Adoration is my special time that I set aside for God. I make time for everything else in my life. I feel I need to make time for Him too, to give thanks for all He has done for us.

Adoration is a powerful time of prayer and healing


Jesus, I love our time together. I look forward to telling You everything that is in my heart. Sometimes I get very emotional at how good You have been to me that the tears roll down my face. I long to be like Your Heart and understand and love the way that You do. I thank you for the beautiful books I have read in Your company and how You have spoken to me through them.

God always whispers to us. It is constant in our lives. To spend an hour in Adoration with Him in silence helps me to hear His whisper of love and peace.

I come to You, O Holy Lord, to this little chapel, which holds endless strength, courage, comfort and peace for my soul. I enter this door, weak, beaten and hopeless in my effort to carry my crosses, discouraged at my inability to hear Your call and do Your will. As I rest in Your Real Presence, hiding from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world, I gain such an inner peace, a joyful fortitude knowing that my prayers, intentions and even my presence here are perfected through the love of Mary and the Passion of our Lord. I leave this room mindful of my countless blessings with a clearer understanding of God's call and a soul nourished with the strength and peace to face whatever may lie beyond the threshold.

My Lord and my God, You are truly here.When I am near You in this holy room with You in the Holy Eucharist, I feel so loved and wanted.

Since coming to weekly Adoration, I have a greater understanding that I simply need to be holy one moment at a time. I do not need to be concerned with my past, or all the seemingly endless moments to come. I simply need to seek to be holy in the simple quietness of the moment. I also need to celebrate and enjoy each moment as God leads my life.

I have heard it said that one of the greatest honors on earth is to receive a private audience with the Pope. I have the greatest honor of all in this Adoration chapel - a private audience with Jesus anytime I want.

Adoration is spending time with a loved One who thinks the world of me and every one I care for. In any condition I am in, I know I will be accepted and loved for who I truly am and gain courage and strength to become who God wants me to be.
