“In adoration, God promises to be with us always”

William Kaldawi

The Holy Eucharist is my Lord and my God. I wake up, and I go to daily Mass, and I work praying the Rosary, and I go to bed with adoration on the TV. God is everything and the reason for my existence. 

The Holy Eucharist inspires me to live like Our Lord Jesus Christ, as He is the King of our lives, and His example in the Eucharist is a model for us all. He is God's heartbeat, always with us. May His peace be with us all. 

I love God because He first loved us. In Holy Mass, we experience God's sacrifice and resurrection of His life, as He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. In Holy Communion, He gives Himself to us, and we give ourselves — body, mind, heart, and soul — to Him. As we go about our daily lives, He carries us, and we carry Him. 

In adoration, God promises to be with us always, and we ask God to stay with us forever. He is Emmanuel, God With Us, Eternal God. God sanctifies us in adoration, and we can bring our many needs to Him.
