Eucharistic Adoration

The value of an hour spent before the Blessed Sacrament is beyond all that we can imagine. This time that you spend with Jesus is more precious than any other time.

NOTE: The Chapel will be closed for weekly maintenance on Wednesdays 9:00-11:00am.

Things to do during Eucharistic Adoration

Fr. Benedict Groeschel said there are “four kinds of prayer most appropriate in the presence of the Eucharist": Adoration and Praise, Thanksgiving, Repentance, Trusting Intercession.

  1. Pray the Psalms or the Liturgy of the Hours . Whether you are praising, giving thanks, asking for forgiveness, or seeking an answer, you’ll find an appropriate psalm. The ancient prayer of the Church called the Liturgy of the Hours presents an excellent way to pray through the book of Psalms throughout the year.
  2. Recite the Jesus prayer Say “Lord Jesus, have mercy on me, a sinner.” Repeatedly as you quiet your heart and mind.
  3. Meditate using Scripture Choose a passage from the Bible. Read the words and ask God to let the passage speak to you. Pay special attention to anything that strikes you and ask God what He wishes for you to draw from that passage.
  4. Read the life of a saint and pray with him or her. Most holy men and women have had a devotion to Our Lord in the Eucharist. Terese of Lisieux, Catherine of Siena, Francis of Assisi, Thomas Aquinas, Peter Julian Eymard, Dorothy Day, Mother Theresa of Calcutta, and Baroness Catherine de Hueck are just a few. Read about them and pray their prayers before the Blessed Sacrament.
