Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. During the Holy Eucharistic, at the moment of consecration the host and wine are transformed into the real Body and Blood of Christ, at the Altar. This means that they are not only spiritually transformed, but rather are actually (substantially) transformed into the Body and Blood of Christ. The elements retain the appearance of host and wine, but are indeed the actual Body and Blood of Christ. And therefore we experience the actual, physical presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.

Jn. 14:18 says that Christ instituted this Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist in order to remain with mankind until the end of time.

Thus, as Catholics, we believe that Christ is truly and substantially present in the Eucharist, and the Blessed Sacrament is given the same adoration and devotion that is given to Christ Jesus.

A priest, at the beginning of the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, takes out the sacred host from the tabernacle and places it in the Monstrance on the Altar for adoration by the faithful. "Monstrance" is the vessel used in the Church to display the consecrated Eucharistic Host, during Eucharistic adoration or benediction.

In our retreat centre, we have different possibilities to remain in front of this Most Holy Sacrament, to spend time in spiritual conversation, in silent adoration. We have a group of volunteers pray in the heartfelt presence of living Christ Jesus. We pray for all the needy, suffering, for all those who have lost hope and faith. And the past years, we could experience the real intervention of Jesus Christ in our retreat centre. And if you feel to pray with us please come and join us. If you have any prayer request, please send it to us and we will remember you, in our prayers in front of the Most Holy Sacrament.
