Come Let Us Adore Him! - Stirring Slumbering Souls - 250 Eucharistic Reflections

The greatest invitation ever extended to mankind – Come Let Us Adore Him - will be sung throughout our Catholic Churches this Christmas. As well it should. But that summons was never intended to be limited to Advent. Indeed, for more than 2000 years our Lord has pleaded with His people to spend one hour with Him. For centuries He has waited...and waited…and waited. 

Few have ever stopped by for a visit. Many no longer believe He is really and substantially present in the Sacred Eucharist. For all practical purposes, He is abandoned, ignored and disrespected.

Feel His pain and anguish over being abandoned, ignored and treated irreverently. Understand how thirsty He is for your love. Then love and treat Him as He deserves. We just have to love God enough to gift our presence to Him. Could there be any better time than now to do so?

May our loving and waiting Lord use the 250 quotations, testimonies, questions for reflection, and prayers in Stirring Slumbering Souls250 Eucharistic Reflections - to increase belief in, reverence for, devotion to and love of His Eucharistic Presence, to touch lukewarm hearts, to stir slumbering souls and to re-ignite the flame of love for Him that He placed in our hearts the second He breathed life into them.
