Eucharistic Reflection - God Speaks To Us

"There are prayerful steps we can take, in the silence of Eucharistic adoration, to hear the Lord’s voice. We can begin by thanking God for His presence, and by asking Him to help us to know Him, and to love him. We can acknowledge our distractions, and ask the Lord to give us the gift of silence. And, through Scripture, or the mysteries of the rosary, through some other spiritual practice or reading, or through simple contemplation of God’s goodness, we can begin to hear the Lord’s voice. We can share our hearts with the Lord, and ask him to fill our minds, our imaginations, and our hearts with His presence.

God speaks to us when He is present before us in the Eucharist. We need only learn His language: we need only dare to kneel humbly before the Lord and, with trust in God, begin a dialogue of silence—intimate, powerful, and real."

(From Pastoral Letter On Adoration of the Most Holy Eucharist by Bishop James Conley)
