Love is repaid with Love

Can you not watch one hour with me?

Amor con amor se paga

¿No puedes velar una hora conmigo?

Eucharistic Adoration has been promoted throughout church history by popes and saints, most recently by Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, St. Faustina, St. Padre Pio and Blessed Mother Theresa.  Where Eucharistic Adoration takes place, God’s blessings have been poured out in abundance on families, parishes and the whole world.  When St. Faustina was in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, Jesus appeared to her in a vision.  Each time a person entered the chapel and visited Jesus exposed in a monstrance, she saw His divine rays of Love and Mercy burst forth and encircle the whole world and everyone in it with graces and blessings.  Jesus told her, “I want Adoration to take place… for the intention of imploring Mercy for the whole world.”

We invite everyone to participate in this devotion that Jesus asks for.  We especially invite younger adults to answer Jesus’ call since so many of those who participate are elderly and infirmed.  Hopefully, you can find one hour a week to visit Him, but any amount of time you can spend with Him is welcome.
