Eucharistic Adoration Chapel
As the summer rolls on, there is much to be concerned about, so many issues and people in the world that need attention. Yet there is something just about anyone can do that is free, and requires no special skills or knowledge. And it takes as much or as little time as you can spare. Eucharistic Adoration sounds very formal, but it is simply spending time with Christ, either alone in silence, or with others in unified prayer, bringing all to Jesus. The group is coordinated by Anne and Tom Buckley and started in 2017, although our parish has a long tradition of Eucharistic adoration in various forms. Ellen and Mike Lobasso also have active roles in the ministry
“Prayer is important and powerful, and when done within a connected community, that power is magnified. It is also a response to the call to action to make a difference in the world,” said Mrs. Buckley. To this end, there are times within the schedule devoted to rosaries and structured prayers. There is even a patriotic rosary, where the five decades of ten beads each are prayed aloud for each of the 50 states.
Apart from the assigned times, all are invited to pray silently, from their own hearts. There’s no right or wrong way to spend time with Christ. If you haven’t done a rosary in a while – or ever – there are pamphlets in the church, and plenty of guides online. Don’t have a rosary? Use your fingers. Once you start, you will find so much to pour out to Christ – love, fears, petitions, problems, thanks. If you can’t recite or recall formal prayers, just say what is in your heart. You truly have no idea the good this can do, or the thousands of people who are helped by your prayers. It’s powerful, and it works.
