On Ash Wednesday 1933, Holy Ghost received permission for daily exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Today, that 70-year tradition continues with adoration Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 3:00pm. If you are interested in becoming a scheduled adorer, please contact the parish office.
The Eucharist is nothing less than Jesus’ complete and Personal gift of Himself to us -Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity- under the appearances of bread and wine in the consecrated Host. He hides His immense glory, beauty and dignity in the Blessed Sacrament because He wants us to come to Him in faith that we may love Him for Himself.
Eucharistic Adoration is praying before Jesus in the exposed host of the Holy Eucharist. It is an expression of our love for Jesus, who loves us so much that He never wants to leave us and so stays with us day and night in the Blessed Sacrament. In his first encyclical, Pope John Paul II says “Our communal worship at Mass must go together with our personal worship of Jesus in Eucharistic adoration in order that our love may be complete.”
This time that Jesus wants you to spend with Him can be spent any way you want to: reading the Bible, praying the Rosary, meditating on spiritual reading, using your favorite prayer book, or speaking to Jesus heart to Heart, as one does with a friend. You may be so tired or troubled or worn out that you just want to sit, relax, and enjoy the sweet peace that comes from simply being with the One who loves you the most, Jesus.
Please consider spending an hour with our Lord in prayer. It will change your life! Our sincere thanks to all who have offered to take a regular time of Eucharistic Adoration each week. Contact Phillip Johns at 303-332-5531 or PJohns815@gmail.com for more information
