Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

blessed_sacramentTo adore God in the Eucharist and spend quality time with our Lord on a regular basis is to form an ever stronger connection between our Creator and ourselves. This has such rich potential in the life of our souls that words can never adequately describe it. It is an opportunity to enter into union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Through contemplation before the Eucharist, one experiences the infinite mercy and tenderness of Jesus from just a few feet away, and the opening of the soul to the divine wisdom, grace and power of Almighty God.

As we enter the Chapel, we bring our broken humanity and mortality. As we exit, we do so, not only encouraged for having been privileged to kneel in the presence of the angels before the Glory of God, but also strengthened for having received from our Lord the portion of divine growth, carried in the gifts offered to each one of us by the Holy Spirit, that will carry us through this earthly realm and into our eternal life. One receives and is empowered to spread the fire of the Lord’s divine love. Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament means kneeling before the Light of the World, which one then carries into a world often beset with darkness.

I am an author and Catholic who has discerned that this is part of his vocation in life. Over many years it has become clear that God has called me to a teaching vocation, and He granted me the necessary gifts through the Holy Spirit.
