Eucharistic Reflection -Thoughts From Adorers


Let’s reflect on our Eucharistic Lord from the vantage point of those adorers who have chosen to spend one hour of their time each week with Him.

May their reflections spur you on to do likewise:

 
I feel a warmth that surrounds my heart, so much love. I don’t have this feeling anywhere else. I know Jesus is in me always, but to be in His Real Presence, in our Chapel, is the best hour of my day.  I truly love coming, never mind subbing and never feel that it is an inconvenience.  After all the years of coming, I still feel excited when I know I am going to do Adoration.  I have been at Adoration during all hours of the day and night and I believe Adoration is one of the greatest gifts given to me by our Lord.  You will not regret the time being here with Jesus.  You will fall in love too!

 

Adoration has given me that moment each week to better focus my life, to be close, one-on-one with Jesus. To feel love and return it to my friends and family.  To have the ability to ask and pray to Jesus for others in need along with myself.  Adoration has opened my heart and has allowed me to see more clearly the miracle of “The Mass” and Jesus is so much alive in all of us!

  

Since I started coming to Adoration most of the changes in my life have been internal. I have become a much more spiritual person as a result of the peace that I absorb during the short hour that I am in Christ’s Presence.  I am much better prepared when a crisis arises to deal with the problem with the knowledge that I am not in it alone.  I have also become much more confident about speaking to others about my love for the Catholic Church and how following Jesus’s teachings in the Gospels have not made me feel that I am confined to a set of rules but have made me feel free and loved unconditionally.  Basically, coming to Adoration has enriched my life in countless ways.  It has touched every aspect of my life from how I treat others, to how I spend my free time at home.  Coming to Adoration will change your life!  As Jesus said to His disciples: “Could you not keep watch for one hour?” Come and see what the Lord will do for you.

 
Adoration has helped me in many ways.  I started coming to adoration with my Mom when I was eight.  I didn’t come every week. I would just come once in awhile.  When I started having problems in school with my teacher and classmates I came to Adoration and prayed to God or I wrote down my thoughts and thanked Him for helping me do better.  God is always by your side wherever you go and helps you along the way.  So I encourage you to come to Adoration once a week to pray to God for one hour.  I guarantee that if you sign up, something in your life will get better each time you come.  So come sign up for Adoration and help your parish out.  I did and God has helped me through many of my hardships.

 

Adoration is a resting place for my tired, hurried body and mind.  Our dear God is my therapist, Who gives me peace.  It is almost like I am transformed into a better person but then I’m turned out into the world and by the next week for adoration, I am ready to be renewed.  Yes Adoration has made a positive difference in my life.  I am thankful for God’s goodness and I have seen miracles take place around me.

  1. I had no expectations when I first tried Adoration. Turned out be a surprisingly great way to spend an hour.

  2. Thanks for your comment Christian. The hardest challenge in promoting this most necessary devotion is getting people to go. Once they go with an open mind and willing heart, God does the rest.
