Eucharistic Adoration: What? Why? When?

What is Eucharistic Adoration?

When we come to pray and visit before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, it is called “adoration.” At every Catholic Mass, a beautiful miracle takes place – ordinary bread and wine become the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus! We receive this Body of Christ at communion time and after the consecrated hosts that were not consumed are placed in the tabernacle. For adoration, a consecrated host is taken outside of the tabernacle and placed in a special golden holder called a “monstrance.”

Why would I go to Adoration?

Eucharistic Adoration gives you a place and time (outside of Mass) to be with our Lord. It can be a time to receive great peace and trust in our Lord, and a place where the Lord can strengthen your belief in His Real Presence in the Eucharist. It can be a time to read the Scriptures, to more clearly hear the Word of God. It is the place to spend precious time with our LORD!
