Eucharistic Adoration, Monday, September 18
About Eucharistic Adoration
Eucharistic adoration is a practice within the Catholic Church and some other Christian traditions where the consecrated Eucharistic host, which is believed to be the actual body of Jesus Christ, is displayed and worshipped. The practice typically involves placing the consecrated host in a special holder called a monstrance, which allows it to be prominently displayed for worshippers to see.
During Eucharistic adoration, believers gather in a church or chapel to spend time in quiet contemplation, prayer, and reflection before the exposed Eucharist. The purpose of this practice is to offer reverence and adoration to Jesus Christ, present in the Eucharist, and to deepen one’s personal connection with Him. It is considered a time of intimate communion with Christ and an opportunity to express gratitude, make supplications, and engage in spiritual reflection.
