SPENDING TIME IN SOLITUDE WITH JESUS

EUCHARIST ADORATION

You are Peter, upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Matt 16:18)

A few years before adorer Becky Boswell converted to Catholicism: she ardently attended weekly Holy Hours on Thursday at our parish. Surprisingly, Becky discovered the value of spending time in the Real Presence of Our Lord, as an Episcopalian. We know from Becky’s example that the Lord will even invite someone of another denomination to spend time in prayer with Him in Eucharistic Adoration. As faithful Catholic men and women, we too can renew our spiritual lives by spending time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. No matter what your schedule may look like: the Lord will always grant us the desire of our heart in wanting to spend more time with Him, if we truly want this. We only need to ask for the grace to do so, and then make a commitment to be in solitude with Him: adoring Him in His Real Presence.

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him. (Cor.2:19)

FROM ADORER BECKY BOSWELL:

“Before health issues changed and challenged my life, everyday was the best because I could attend daily mass and Adoration on Thursday. The truth is known to me, despite these changes, everyday is still the best due to the invitation by Jesus to experience Adoration, which leads to prayerful and spiritual growth. Through the blessed intervention of our Lord, I learned how to become an empty vessel and to fill myself with the glorified Jesus through prayer. The enlightenment of the journey is a direct result of my time spent in the Real Presence, yes, in Adoration. As I ponder the depth of my being, I can substantiate that through the growth of my prayer life, I am one with Jesus and grounded in my spiritual life as I pray for the Church and others. The Lord is inviting you to spend time with Him. He is waiting for you to adore Him in the Real Presence.” –B.B.

“If you say the Holy Rosary every day, with a spirit of faith and love, our Lady will make sure she leads you very far along her Son’s path.”- St. Josemaria Escriva
