"The best time you will spend on Earth." - Mother Teresa
What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Eucharistic adoration is a complete liturgical service for the adoration of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. Normally the consecrated host is kept in a tabernacle. During Eucharistic Adoration it is placed on the altar in a monstrance to be venerated; to be kept company by the faithful for visitation, contemplative prayer and meditation. Adoration is a sacred time to keep Vigil with the Lord; to spend quiet time with Him.

The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us go meet him in adoration. Saint John Paul II
