Sunday of the Lord’s Passion
ADORATION OF THE BLESSED EUCHARIST
Blessed Mother Teresa’s words:
“In our [Missionaries of Charity] congregation, we used to have adoration once a week for one hour, and then in 1973, we decided to have adoration one hour every day.
FRUITS OF ADORATION
“We have much work to do. Our homes for the sick and dying destitute are full everywhere. And from the time we started having adoration every day, our love for Jesus became more intimate, our love for each other more understanding, our love for the poor more compassionate, and we have double the number of vocations. God has blessed us with many wonderful vocations.
HOLY HOUR – ETERNAL VALUE
- “Every Holy Hour we make so pleases the Heart of Jesus that it will be recorded in Heaven and retold for all eternity:
- It opens up the floodgates of God’s merciful Love upon the world.
- Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth.
- It will make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven.
HOLY HOUR – PEACE ON EARTH
- “A Holy Hour of adoration helps bring everlasting peace to earth.
- It brings us a greater love for Jesus, for each other, and for the poor.
- Every holy hour deepens our union with Him and bears much fruit.
- Nowhere on earth are we more welcomed or loved than by Jesus in Eucharist.
- When you look at the crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you.
- When you look at the Sacred Host you understand how much Jesus loves you now.
- This is why we need Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration in every Parish throughout the entire World.
CONVERSION OF AMERICA … OF AUSTRALIA… OF COROWA – ADORATION
- “What will convert America and save the world?My answer is prayer. What we need is for every parish to come before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in Holy Hours of prayer.On the Cross Jesus said ‘I thirst’. From the Blessed Sacrament Jesus continues to say to each of us ‘I thirst’. He thirsts for our personal love, our intimacy, our union with Him in the Blessed Sacrament.
WHEN EXHAUSTED – PRAY BEFORE THE LORD
- “When the Sisters are exhausted, up to their eyes in work; when all seems to go awry, they spend an hour in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. This practice has never failed to bear fruit: they experience peace and strength.”
