What is Eucharistic Adoration?
As Catholics, we believe that Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist. Bread and wine is transformed into his body and blood at the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Our relationship with Jesus is more than just a once-a-week encounter but a regular reception of his presence in our lives. Jesus calls us to be renewed by him every single day but spending even a few minutes with him can make a huge difference in our life and how we live it.
I am open but where do I begin?
Begin simple w/ Jesus.
You can say: Here I am, Lord. Remind me that you are with me always.
Surrender to Jesus.
You can say: Jesus, I surrender myself to you. Take care of everything!
You can express any words of praise and thanksgiving.
Listen to Jesus.
It is good to practice silence but be patient with yourself especially when distractions enter your mind. A suggestion would be to read Sacred Scripture or bring some other spiritual reading with you.
Offer your prayer intentions to Jesus.
Jesus knows your needs but he also says, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God." Only God can truly satisfy your needs.
