The Need for Eucharistic Renewal


Pope Paul VI declared that there would be no renewal in the Church without a fervent Eucharistic renewal. St. John Paul II has said: “The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic adoration. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration… May our adoration never cease.”

Jesus is waiting for you


"Jesus is waiting for you in the chapel. Go and find him when your strength and patience are giving out, when you feel lonely and helpless. Say to him: "You know well what is happening, my dear Jesus. I have only you.' Come to my aid… And then go your way. Don't worry about knowing how you are going to manage. It is enough to have told our good Lord. He has an excellent memory."

“Could you not keep watch with me for one hour?”


In the Garden of Gethsemani, before His crucifixion, Jesus asked His Apostles, “Could you not keep watch with me for one hour?” Spending one hour with Jesus thus became a tradition in the Church.
