Have You spent Time with Our Lord Today?
Eucharistic Adoration! One of the most neglected practices of Our faith today. We should try to spend at least a few moments with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament when we have time. it doesn't matter if Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the Monstrance or if he is reserved in the Tabernacle, spend Time with our Lord and Eucharistic King. I use to think when i was younger that Jesus was very lonely in the Tabernacle all day with kids just casually walking past the the chapel without as little bit as a hello ( I went to Catholic School through 6- 12 grade) so i used to spend part of my lunch break before the Blessed Sacrament, at one point friends would come with me, and spawned a mini unofficial prayer group. Christ pours so many graces into the hearts and souls of those who make special visits with him in the Blessed Sacrament. he gives peace to the mind and heart, and enlightens us in his love. he wants us to be with him always spiritually and Physically (through Holy Communion and Eucharistic adoration). It is a good practice when we can not go to be physically present in front of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to put yourself spiritually in Christs Eucharistic presence!
