Today marks 134 years of Perpetual Adoration in my community’s chapel.
I am honored and amazed that I have had a small part in upholding this sacred tradition. In the past year, I was also thrilled to play a role in the development of this book:
I will never understand how Christ is present in the Eucharist. I don’t really want to understand. Mystery and wonder seem to increase my faith, somehow.
What I know, though, is that Christ is present. I experience a hushing presence of God in our adoration chapel that causes me to be still and pray. It’s awesome and powerful.
I love God. And, I love the opportunity that adoration provides to uphold the ancient God-given order:
Be still and know that I am God!
I am exalted among the nations,
exalted on the earth. –Psalm 46:11
Thanks and Glory be to God! Amen! Amen!
