Taking time to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is a wonderful experience to grow closer to Our Lord at any time, but during Holy Week, it is especially incredible. In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus asked his disciples to stay awake while he prayed in the garden. They were not able to keep their eyes open. Jesus still asks us today to spend time with him–just an hour a week, or a month–and see how He changes you!
For those unfamiliar with Adoration:
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. In the many Churches that have this adoration, the Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and often the night. Christ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy sacrament of the Eucharist. Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return?
