Eucharistic Reflection - Encountering Our Lord in Adoration

(Image Source: Wikimedia Commons)
“I warmly encourage the faithful to adore Christ, present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar, letting Him heal our consciences and purify us, enlighten us and unite us. In their encounter with Him, Christians will find strength for their spiritual life and their mission in the world. In fact, in communing heart to heart with the divine Teacher, they will discover the Father's infinite love and will be true worshipers in spirit and in truth. Their faith in him will be revitalized; they will enter into God's mystery and be profoundly transformed by Christ. In their trials and in joys, they will conform their life to the mystery of our Saviour's Cross and Resurrection. . . . Every day they will become more and more sons and daughters in the Son. Then, love will be spread through them in human hearts, in order to build up the Body of Christ which is the Church to establish a society of justice, peace and brotherhood. They will be intercessors for all humanity, because every soul which is lifted up to God also lifts up the world and mys­teriously contributes to the salvation freely offered by our Father in heaven.”

(Message of Pope John Paul 11 on the 100th Anniversary of the Con­secration of the Human Race to the Divine Heart of Jesus - June 4, 1999)

  1. St. John Paul II certainly knew what he was talking about. He was truly a gift to the entire world.
