    Eucharistic Adoration
    Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is a form of Eucharistic cult which is particularly widespread in the Church and earnestly recommended to her Pastors and faithful. Its initial form derives from Holy Thursday and the altar of repose, following the celebration of the Coena Domini Mass. This adoration is a most apt way of expressing the connection between the celebration of the memorial of the Lord’s Sacrifice and his continued presence in the Sacrament of the Altar. The reservation of the Sacred Species, so as to be able to administer Viaticum to the sick at any time, encouraged the practice among the faithful of recollection before the tabernacle and to worship Christ present in the Sacrament.

    Indeed, this worship of adoration has a sound and firm foundation, especially since faith in the Lord’s real presence has as its natural consequence the outward and public manifestation of that belief. Therefore, the devotion prompting the faithful to visit the Blessed Sacramant draws them into an ever-deeper share in the paschal mystery and leads them to respond gratefully to the gift of him who through his humanity constantly pours divine life into the members of his Body. Abiding with Christ the Lord, they enjoy his intimate friendship and pour out their hearts before him for themselves and for those dear to them and they pray for the peace and salvation of the world. Offering their entire lives with Christ to the Father in the Holy Spirit, they derive from this sublime colloquy an increase of faith, hope and charity. Thus they foster those right dispositions that enable them with due devotion to celebrate the memorial of the Lord and receive frequently the bread given us by the Father.                    Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy

    To Save Us
    God our Father,
    who send your Son Jesus Christ into the world
    not to judge it but to save it,
    listen to our prayer:

    By giving us your Son, you offer each of us
    your light for our darkness,
    your joy for our sadness,
    your bread to nourish our life,
    and your life to overcome our death.

    Open our hearts to your word and your grace
    so that we may recognise
    in you our Father, who calls us by our name,
    in your Son, our Saviour and brother,
    and in your Spirit, the love which unites us.

    And while our lips sing your praise,
    bring our hearts close to you,
    through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
    (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)
