What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic
Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery
of Christ truly present before us".
During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in His
Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist … By
worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a
magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.
In its fullest essence … Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each
other, at the same time!"
The Eucharist is: Jesus truly present – Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity!
At the moment of Consecration, during the Mass, the "gifts" of bread and wine are
transformed (transubstantiated) into the actual Body and Blood of Christ, at the Altar.
This means that they are not only spiritually transformed, but rather are actually
(substantially) transformed into the Body and Blood of Christ. The elements retain
the appearance of bread and wine, but are indeed the actual Body and Blood of
Christ. This is what is meant by Real Presence: the actual, physical presence of
Jesus in the Eucharist.
“Jesus says, “I shall not leave you orphans. I shall come to you”. Jn 14:18. Christ
instituted this Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist in order to remain with mankind until
the end of time.
