THE POWER OF PRAYER BEFORE
THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
In Christ, there is always reason to have hope!! Christ tells us that He is with us. St. Paul reminds us that all things are possible for God. We need to Pray, and part of that prayer is taking time to be with God in the silence.
In our lives there is so much going on in us and all around us. We all deeply desire Peace in our hearts, in our families, and throughout the world, especially in Ukraine. In our own Archdiocese, Archbishop Rozanski has asked us to pray daily so that all Catholics will take part in the Strategic Planning Process by giving their input through the Disciple Maker Index survey. Each member of the Archdiocese is asked to take this fifteen minute survey.
Your parish wants to invite you to come for adoration at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16th. There will be time for silent prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, a Scripture reading, a brief homily, and Benediction at 7:45. Adoration will be offered on Wednesdays, March 23rd and March 30th. During the Lenten Parish Mission, Adoration will be held on Sunday, April 3rd, at 7 p.m.
V Christ is Really there! “I myself am the living Bread come down from Heaven.”
V Day and night Jesus dwells in the Blessed Sacrament because of His Infinite love for you! “Behold I will
be with you always even to the end of the world...because “I have loved you with an everlasting love,
and constant is My affection for you.”
V When you look upon the Sacred Host, you look upon Jesus, the Son of God. “Indeed, this is the will of my
Father, that everyone who looks upon the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life. I will raise you
on the last day.”
V Each moment that you spend in the Risen Christ’s Eucharistic Presence will increase His Divine Life
within you and deepen your personal relationship and friendship with Him. “I have come that you
may have life and have it more abundantly.”
V For peace in our hearts, our families, our country, our world! “When my people humble themselves and
seek my presence...I will revive their hearts, their souls and their lands.”
