Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. On Friday from 7:00 AM to 5:15 PM, the Holy Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day. Christ’s great love for us was shown when He was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist. Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love in return? “Could you not watch one hour with me?” (MT.26:40).

Spending time with Jesus in adoration should not strike us as unusual. It is really a very natural human activity. When two people love each other, they want to spend time together to visit, to get to know each other better. You cannot love someone you do not know. Adoration of Our Lord in the Eucharist is your chance to know Jesus better.

Adoration is a silent time between you and Jesus. There is no one preaching to you, reading to you, telling you when to stand, sit, kneel, or sing. You can pray your Rosary, read your Bible, read one of the books on the adoration cart, or just sit in silence and speak to Our Lord. It is time to give yourself a break. This is why thousands of people testify that one hour each week with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the most peaceful and satisfying hour of their week. They look forward to their time with Jesus.
