Our pastor tells the children in our parish it's a time for you to look at Jesus and to reflect on him looking back at you. That visual image is striking to me in my worship.
Years ago, I remember standing in church at a daily Mass — after being a Sunday-only church-goer — and I had two profound a-ha moments: I thought to myself, (1) I can do this every day! and (2) If I have time to play tennis two times a week, I have time to go to Mass two more times a week."
I love Mass. I love Jesus in the Eucharist.
I was late to the party on eucharistic adoration, not even knowing it was a thing until my mid-30s. (I'm now in my mid 50s). Once I became a eucharistic "adorer," my life changed. My relationship with Christ and His church changed. My relationship with others changed and my mission as a Catholic Christian changed. I knew I had to respond.
Experience it for Yourself
Jesus is truly present. Jesus is always with you. Sit in his presence and open yourself up to his voice.
