Eucharistic Adoration

  • Eucharistic Adoration in a Parish Setting
    Fr. James Moroney (Adoremus Bulletin)
    This essay was originally an address to the clergy of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis at a symposium on Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on February 2, 1998, sponsored by Archbishop Justin Rigali.

  • Catholic Pages Directory
    There are many excellent Eucharistic articles under their two links:
    1. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
    2. Real Presence

  • What is Perpetual Adoration?

  • Catholic Encyclopedia: Perpetual Adoration

  • Catholic Encyclopedia: Venerable Pierre-Julien Eymard - founder of the Society of the Blessed Sacrament

  • Catholic Encyclopedia: Ostensorium (Monstrance)

  • Perpetual Adoration: An Ancient Devotion in Modern Times - Mike Aquilina (EWTN)

  • True - John A. Hardon, S.J.
    "In a society such as ours that rejects metaphysics, glorifies moral relativism, promotes blatant materialism, and whose academics are busy deconstructing the truth, it should not surprise us that an enormous spiritual void has emerged, which many desperately try to fill with frenetic consumerism, joyless hedonism, or bogus spirituality."

  • Holy Communion and Devotion to the Eucharistic Mystery Outside Mass - L'Osservatore Romano (EWTN)

  • Eucharistic Adoration: A Window to Heaven - Fr. Raymond T. Gawronski, S.J. (EWTN)
    There is no monitor or video screen at eucharistic adoration, no figures or colors shifting across the screen. We simply sit and look at a round piece of bread encircled by light. That bread is the Body of Christ, the consecrated Host, before which countless Catholics gaze in rapt adoration throughout the world.

  • Eucharist and Eschatology - Address by Father Louis Aldrich of Taipei (Zenit)
    "The Church Militant and each Christian lives within the eschatological reality of an 'already' and 'not yet' achieved salvation. The Kingdom of God is already among us, we already share in the heavenly banquet; but this sharing in God's Kingdom and this banquet has not yet been achieved in its final, definitive fullness. The Church, therefore, lives in hope of attaining this final fullness, a hope strengthen by already participating in the eschatological promises."

  • Eucharist Makes the Church (Part 1) - Father Paul McPartlan on the Centrality of the Sacrament (Zenit)
    "The Eucharist is at the very core of the life of the Church and gives the Church its identity. The Church is the Body of Christ, and, as St. Augustine taught, we receive the body of Christ in order to become the body of Christ: 'Be what you see and receive what you are.' The whole mystery of Christ and of the Church as his body is what we receive in the Eucharist. This sacrament therefore renews our life together in Christ; in other words, it renews the Church."

  • Eucharist Makes the Church (Part 2) - Father Paul McPartlan on Sharing in Christ's Life (Zenit)
    "Pope John Paul wants to launch the Church strongly into the new millennium. To have a year concentrating on the mystery of the Eucharist is a vital part of this project, because the Eucharist contains riches to feed and forgive us, to strengthen and unite us, and to guide and protect us on our pilgrim way. Jesus himself is with us and we recognize him in the breaking of bread, as the disciples did at Emmaus."

  • Rekindling Forty Hours; the Why of an Academy - A Basilica Wows Rome With Eucharistic Adoration - by Elizabeth Lev (Zenit.org)
    "The Forty Hours devotion recalls the time span during which the body of Christ lay in the tomb. The practice of this solemn exposition began in Milan, somewhere between 1527 and 1537. It seems to have been first proposed by the founder of the Barnabites, St. Anthony Zaccaria, although accounts vary."
