So what does this have to do with Adoration? Well, Wednesday evenings are CCD nights in our Parish, and our Pastor is a great apostle of the Eucharist. As I posted several months ago, on our Patronal Feast we had a Eucharistic Procession through town, because Father said we should give our greatest Gift to our fellow citizens, Our Lord in the Blessed Eucharist.
So, this evening, in order to teach the children about the Eucharist we had Adoration and Benediction. I took the opportunity to anticipate Matins and Lauds of both Offices and to say my Rosary before Our Lord on the Altar.
It was amazing! Since I am free most afternoons, I plan on making a habit of visiting the Church to recite my Rosary and part of my Office. The Blessed Eucharist will not be exposed, but praying in the physical Presence of Our Lord, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity is so much more intense than praying at home, that I would be stupid to forego the opportunity.
I highly suggest my readers try it. It is truly wonderful.
