What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Simply adoring Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist.
Spending time with Christ in Eucharistic Adoration can draw one into deeper communion with Our Eucharistic Lord.
The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet Him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease ~ (CCC 1380)
“at the moment of consecration” (CCC 1377), the bread and wine “become Christ’s body and blood” (CCC 1333). The Eucharist is “the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained” (CCC 1374).

“When you look at the Crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you then. When you look at the Sacred Host you understand how much Jesus loves you now,”- St. Teresa of Calcutta
