The WORD Among Us
Adoration is the first attitude of man acknowledging that he is a
creature before his Creator. It exalts the greatness of the Lord who made us and the almighty power of the Savior who sets us free from evil. Adoration is homage of the spirit to the "King of Glory," respectful silence in the presence of the "ever greater" God. Adoration of the thrice-holy and sovereign God of love blends with humility and gives assurance to our supplications.
—Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2628
Please note, during the Stage 2 of the Pandemic Policy, Adoration will not be offered.

When the moral fiber of a nation is weakened,
when the sense of personal responsibility is diminished, then the door is open for the justification of injustices, for violence in all its forms, and for the manipulation of the many by the few. . . And so, it becomes all the more urgent to steep ourselves in the truth that comes from Christ, who is "the way, the truth and the life" and in the strength that he himself offers us through his Spirit. It is especially in the Eucharist that the power and the love of the Lord are given to us.
World Youth Day Madrid 2011
Over 1,000,000 young people pray during Eucharistic adoration being led by Pope Benedict XVI at the World Youth Day prayer vigil in Madrid Aug. 20, 2011. Pilgrims endured 30 minutes of heavy rain during the vigil.
Blessed John Paul II
“The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic worship. Jesus
waits for us in this Sacrament of Love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration and in contemplation that is full of faith and ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world. May our adoration never cease.”
"Of all devotions, that of Eucharistic Adoration is the greatest after the
Blessed Mother Theresa, Calcutta
"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."
"The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth. Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven, and will help bring about everlasting peace on earth."
For my flesh is real food
"In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment, there is a need for silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host. Be assiduous in the prayer of adoration and teach it to the faithful. It is a source of comfort and light, particularly to those who are suffering." -Pope Benedict XVI
