Adoration to the Blessed Sacrament

Adoremus - adoration to the Holy Eucharist
Holy Eucharist - Adoration to the Blessed Sacrament - O salutaris ostia
Can you not spend at least an hour with me? Mt.26:40 If we believe that Jesus is truly present in the the Blessed Sacrament, we must  respond to his love by honouring Him with our Devotion to  His Eucharistic Presence. There are many parishes that have perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament,  therefore Jesus is always being acknowledged in the altar. There are religious communities that adore the Blessed Sacrament continually,  we must realize that God is with us in this Sacred Mystery.  Can I afford to remain indifferent ?
The Church grants a
plenary indulgence for adoration to the Blessed Sacrament for at least one hour.

Would you like to make an act of Spiritual Communion ?

The Holy Eucharist

Before the Blessed Sacrament

We find ourselves in the Presence of Blessed Sacrament, this is our intimate encounter with the Lord.
We are before the same Lord who created the Heavens and the Earth, the same Word of God who became flesh and dwelt among us, the same Jesus that performed many miracles and who can do more miracles even now if we trust in Him, Jesus crucified, the one who pleads to the father for the forgiveness of our sins and says on the cross, and even now if we trust in Him: solemnly I tell you, you will be with me in Paradise. He is the bread come down from Heaven to feed our mortal bodies, to strengthen our mortal lives and to give us eternal life
We find ourselves before the gate of Heaven, the bridge between God and men, the door to Paradise, the fountain of living water, the point between death and eternal life. We are before the open heart of Jesus, who loved us so much that He died for our sins, who is truly here waiting for our love, He is anxiously waiting for us to surrender to Him, He wants to empty His infinite love and mercy in our hearts.
Let us recline our heads on Jesus’ bosom as John the beloved disciple did in the last supper.
We come to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament continuing the adoration that we give Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. Jesus is truly present with us confirming His words
“I will be with you until the end of times”
Adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is to accept the Word of God, Emmanuel, God with us. When we adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament we are keeping company to his body in the sepulcher, we are venerating the broken body of Jesus crucified who died for our sins.
The heart of Jesus is open for us here now, so that we can enter Him; so let us open our hearts that He may enter us too.
We find ourselves before Jesus crucified, torn to pieces for our sins. Let us come to Him with a humble and contrite heart. Let us promise Him that we rather die than to offend Him. Every time that we sin we renew his passion, Jesus is constantly offended by the whole world, let us offer our adoration in reparation for all those wounds that we inflict upon his sacred body.
God fed the Israelites with manna in the desert, He gave them the bread of angels, but they complained to Moses, they rejected that gift from God and called it miserable food, therefore the Lord sent fiery serpents that bit the people, many of them died.
After pleading with Moses for forgiveness, Moses prayed to the Lord, who told Him, (Numb 21:8-9) Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a standard; and it shall come about, that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, he will live. And Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived.
Jesus said to Nicodemus, (John 3:14-15) As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; so that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life.
Jesus took upon Himself all the sins of the world, so that we can look at Him in the same way the Israelites looked at the fiery serpent on the standard and lived. When we look and contemplate Jesus crucified, we look at the price of victory of the risen Christ who conquered sin with grace, who overcame the devil with his holiness and who overcame death by his resurrection.
Jesus gives us the living bread come down from Heaven, the celestial manna, the food for our souls. We are free to come to adore Him and receive Him with adoration otherwise He remains to be despised and forgotten by so many indifferent souls.
The Holy Eucharist is the heart of the Church, this heart is bleeding daily for the salvation of the body of Christ, the Church. Without the Precious Blood of Christ we, the body of Christ would be dead.
The Priest has received the dignity of consecrating the bread and wine that becomes the body and blood of Jesus in the Holy Mass. The Holy Mass is the reenactment of the sacrifice of Calvary in an unbloody manner, Jesus is the victim, the altar and the sacrifice. Jesus said in the last supper “do this in memory of me”, because He wanted to heal us daily with His holy sacrifice, since by his holy wounds we are healed, He also wanted to feed us with His body and blood to strength us with His grace now, and to purify our souls for eternal life.
People start the new year with new year’s resolutions. One of the most popular resolutions is to have a healthy body, to start a healthy diet and to lose weight, since we have a saying “You are what you eat”.
We should have a continuous resolution to have a healthy soul, to eat the bread of life in a state of grace, to benefit from the Precious Blood of Jesus that abundantly runs like and endless torrent in the Holy Eucharist to wash our souls clean and to nourish ourselves for eternal life. Let us have the food from Heaven with respect and adoration, “You are what you eat”
God the Father loved the world so much that He sent His only begotten Son to the world, so that anyone who believes in Him will be saved and will not perish, He feeds us daily with the bread from Heaven, He wants us to grow healthy in our spiritual lives and to purify our souls so that we can become like Him.
“You are what you eat”, (1 John 3:2) Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

Lord Jesus, we believe that you are truly present in Blessed Sacrament, grant us the grace to receive the Holy Eucharist always in a state of grace, help us to live in your Presence. Make us more and more like you, transform us into you, sanctify us, make us a living chalice of your Precious Blood, a living host of your Grace, Love, Mercy and Salvation, a living tabernacle of your Eucharistic Presence, a Sun of your light, an image of your Holiness. Wash us with your most Precious Blood and imprint your most holy wounds upon our souls. Divine Lord, we bless your Most Holy humanity, imprint it upon our humanity and heal us through the merits of your Most Holy Wounds. Make us one with You.  

Joseph of Jesus and Mary.
