Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic AdorationWhy should we participate in Eucharistic Adoration?
Jesus speaks directly on this in the gospel of John, chapter 6 verse 40 reads: Indeed, this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks upon the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life. Him I will raise up on the last day.

THAT EVERYONE WHO LOOKS UPON THE SON?
Who looks upon the son? The Samaritan woman at the well looked upon the son. Mary Magdalene looked upon the son. The Magi (three kings) looked upon the son.

When we look upon the son. We receive bountiful amount of graces! The grace of Faith grows strong with in us.

The few that I mentioned; the Samaritan woman, Mary Magdalene, the Three Kings. All of them broken, hurt, in need of a savior. As they went to Jesus. He showed compassion and mercy. The three Kings are great examples, because they were the first gentiles to adore Jesus.

Come to Jesus! He is waiting for you.

As parents we love our children and it pains us to be apart from them. As they grow older and build their own lives. We long for them to visit us. We never reject our childrens visits. No matter what life they lead. We love them. How much more does God love us!

Please consider spending time with the Lord Jesus. We are always in need of new adorers; especially the hours of 11:00 to 2:00 every Friday.

There are no specific guidelines on what to do during your time with Jesus. Just sit and feel his presence, or if you wish, pray any devotions, read scriptures and any other spiritual writings.

Please contact the church office @ 865-1071 with any questions or to sign up for an hour of adoration:

Adoration is held every Wednesday from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the church and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Adoration Chapel in the gathering space.
