Eucharistic_Chapel3Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is an opportunity to increase our devotion to the Holy Eucharist. The mystical sign, the consecrated Host, is exposed in a monstrance on the altar of our chapel. The Host mysteriously fulfills Christ’s promise of His presence – “This is my Body…this is my Blood.” Devout people have kept vigil with Christ in Eucharistic Adoration since the 13th century.

Eucharistic Adoration focuses our attention and gives assurance to our faith that He is with us. To devoutly approach Christ hidden in this mystery is to become renewed in the Christian life. To show both exterior and interior signs of reverence is to be lifted beyond commonplace. Silence, reverence, gratitude, loving devotion can flood the soul if one is blessed to do this for an hour. Certainly it fulfills the invitation of Christ, “…could you not watch with me one hour?” (Mt 26:40)

In Eucharistic Adoration we come before Jesus truly present – Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity!
