Perpetual Adoration: your life will never be the same

More Perpetual Adoration, please!

When St. Catherine of Siena parish on Long Island (New York) introduced the Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament over a year ago, the results have been remarkable:

“There’s a wide range of people on their knees before the Blessed Sacrament. Older couples, businessmen in suits stopping by before or after work or at lunchtime, entire families, a young guy in painter’s clothes, a woman in tears, a 20-something guy with tattoos and a sweatshirt, a priest from a neighboring parish. One couple come regularly with their adult disabled daughter. A dad brings his three sons straight from school. They follow him right up to the Blessed Sacrament and kneel beside him with their backpacks. A family of four generations came to pray together.”

I can hear the chuckles coming from those who think we’re kneeling before a piece of bread. But we don’t care. When we kneel before the Blessed Sacrament to be with Our Lord – to talk to him, to offer our joys, sorrows, problems, and pains to Him – we know He listens to us and comforts us. The peace that He gives us, even in the midst of our tribulations, is a peace that those who deny Him will never know and we pray for them, that they may adore Him and obtain His peace, which no one can ever take away.
