Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration

The Catechism quotes Pope John Paul II: "The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease." (CCC, 1380)

St. Veronica Parish offers Eucharistic Adoration every month in the chapel at St. Malachy’s Church from 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm. No advance sign up is necessary; spend as little or as much time as you want. Parking is available in the back parking lot. Access the chapel by the rear door of the church.

What to do during Eucharistic Adoration
The primary purpose of Adoration is right there in the name of the act: to adore the One present to us in the Eucharist. Remember that you don’t actually have to do anything. The greatest gift God gives us is himself, and Adoration is another way for us to recognize that gift outside of receiving the Eucharist at Mass. So, don’t overthink it. Just receive the gift.
 
Here are a few suggestions:
  • Small prayer booklets which can be used to help during your meditation will be available. These may be picked up as you enter the chapel.
  • Pray in any way that’s meaningful to you.
  • Pray the rosary. To contemplate the mysteries of Jesus’ life in the rosary is to contemplate the mystery of the Eucharist given to us and the Blessed Sacrament we praise in Adoration. So, pairing these prayers is a great habit to get into.
  • Read from Holy Scripture.
  • Just sit there - receive the gift of Christ in the Eucharist and be at peace in the presence of Our Lord.
Guidelines for Adoration
Adoration is a time for quiet meditation and prayer. Please remain silent while in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Remember to genuflect when entering or leaving a pew and if crossing in front of the Blessed Sacrament.
 
Please join us in this most important devotion to Our Lord.
Rest for a while in the presence of Jesus. Let him fill you with his peace, grace, & love.
