May the Lord bless the efforts and guide the hearts of those who administer this ministry that it may bare much fruit.
RSVP to Jesus...... to individually and as a Ministry take responsibility for Eucharistic Adoration.
God gives each of us 8,760 hours a year. Could we (as a Ministry) commit to give back 16 hours in Adoration to our God who suffered agony, torture, incomprehensible pain, and death for three days/36 hours for each one of us? He was deserted and alone at that time, and His situation is the same today in the Tabernacles of our Churches where He has imprisoned Himself solely for Love of us. He was crucified at that time and continues to be crucified everyday with disrespect, neglect, disbelief in His Real presence, immodesty, and much, much more. Can you commit some time to be with Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament?
|Adoration of the||Blessed Sacrament|
Saint Catherine Laboure said "Whenever I go to the chapel I put myself in the presence of our good Lord, and I say to Him, 'Lord, I am here. Tell me what you would have me to do.' If He gives me some task, I am content and I thank Him. If He gives me nothing, I still thank Him since I do not deserve to receive anything more than that. And then, I tell God everything that is in my heart. I tell him about my pains and my joy, and then i listen. If you listen, God will also speak to you, for with the good Lord, you have to both speak and listen. God always speaks to you when you approach him plainly and simply."

Regarding Eucharist Adoration, St. Peter Julian Eumard wrote the following:
“Adore and praise the immense love Jesus has for you in this Sacrament of Himself. In order not to leave you a lonely orphan in this land of exile and misery, He comes from heaven for you personally, to offer you companionship and consolation. Thank Him therefore with all your love and all your strength; thank Him in union with all the saints ....
Pour out your whole soul in thanksgiving to this good Jesus! Thank the Holy Spirit for having reincarnated Him on the altar through the ministry of the priest, and that for you personally. Call upon heaven and earth, angels and men, to help you thank, bless, and exalt so much love for you.”
Jesus, Eucharistic King, Lamb of God, Redeemer and Ruler of the Universe, comes from Heaven for each of us personally, to offer us companionship and consolation. Could we not watch One Hour with Him?
St. John Bosco would say, “There is nothing the devil fears more than these two things: a well-made Communion and frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament.” To fight against the evil in our world today, we can bombard Satan with visits to the Blessed Sacrament.
The Holy Spirit inspires me to write you, and I pray the members of ______Ministry will give their “FIAT” to satisfy the desire of the Trinity for Adoration to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Although, “we” the families of St. B Church, number more than 6,000, Jesus exposed in His Real Presence is visited by few and has been found alone in the Chapel on Wednesdays. Furthermore, when FORTY HOURS EUHARISTIC ADORATION is scheduled four times throughout the year, time slots remain unfilled or are difficult to fill especially during the night. Sometimes a parishioner will remain two to three hours because no one else comes. Surely the Blessed Trinity moans when a parish of 6,000 families falls short in Adoration, the Adoration Jesus desires and deserves from each of us.
Having written the above, I now ask for a commitment,. I ask you to RSVP to Jesus...... to individually and as a Ministry take responsibility for Eucharistic Adoration.

bear with me as I try to explain an inspired plan....I ask your Ministry for 16
lottery, I have scheduled 60 Ministries to fill the FORTY HOURS ADORATION
SCHEDULE. This means that your
Ministry will be responsible for Adorers at that designated time, four times a
year. I suggest a minimum of two
(2) to four (4) people depending on your membership, and a maximum without
limit. We know our Lord is never
outdone, and that your Ministry will be rewarded and blessed abundantly.
The scheduled dates for FORTY HOURS for the year are: ______
might have members sign up at one of your meetings. Each person will be responsible to get a replacement for
themselves if something prevents their attendance. There will be a SIGN IN SHEET, and it will be
important that your members sign in and out so we know your Ministry provided
coverage, and in order to have proof that this system is working.
Perhaps one of your members might be designated to communicate with the
Adoration Ministry leaders.
my closing thoughts. In His Second
Coming, Jesus will come Majestic in His Eucharistic Reign.
Will He find each of us as one of His faithful adoring Him?
Will He find us a Child of the Kingdom, standing with our Mother Mary to
crush the head of Satan for the
Triumph of Her Immaculate Heart? What
we will be, will depend on how much we allow Jesus to have His Way with us.
It is up to each one of us....... to be attentive, to listen to hear His
invitation, to utter Fiat, and to come to adore Him.
It’s His greatest pleasure to be one-on-one, face-to-face, Real and
Present with you and in you!
