12 Biblical Reasons to Spend an Hour

WHY DO EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

 

"The only time our Lord asked the Apostles for anything was the night He went into agony. Not for activity did He plead but for an Hour of companionship."
Venerable (Archbishop) Fulton Sheen
If the Mass is the source and summit of the entire Christian life, then why have Eucharistic Adoration?

 

The celebration of the Most Holy Eucharist is, certainly, the “fount and apex” of the entire Christian life.1 Yet the “spiritual life . . . is not limited solely to participation in the liturgy.”2

 

Pope John Paul II calls worship of the Most Holy Eucharist outside Mass “an important daily practice [that] becomes an inexhaustible source of holiness”3 and a practice “of inestimable value for the life of the Church,” so much so that “ it is the responsibility of Pastors to encourage, also by their personal witness, the practice of Eucharistic adoration, and exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in particular, as well as prayer of adoration before Christ present under the Eucharistic species.”4

Why spend one hour (Holy Hour)?

 

Any amount of time spent before the Most Blessed Sacrament is valuable and beneficial. But here are some reasons for spending a full hour:

 

  1. It is the way to a personal relationship with Jesus. By spending time with Jesus in the Eucharist, we can establish a truly personal relationship with Him. Because Jesus loves us with an infinite love, we bring unlimited joy to His Sacred Heart when we spend an hour with Him in the Blessed Sacraments.

  2. It's a generous gift to the Lord of our precious time. It is thanksgiving and gratitude for all the blessings we've received, and in reparation for sin. In the garden He asked His disciples to watch for one hour.

  3. Jesus gives us His graces. Jesus stays with us day and night in the Blessed Sacrament, calling out to each one of us: “Come to Me all you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will refresh you.”

  4. It brings peace.  The Eucharistic brings peace to our hearts, and people with peaceful hearts make a peaceful world.

  5. It allows us to rest awhile, it gives us time to quieten our mind and heart from the busyness of life, and so that we can concentrate a little on Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

  6. It gives us time to listen to Our Lord.

 

What is the point of Exposition anyway?  Can’t we just pray in front of the tabernacle?

 

Although it is not essential for exposition to take place to have Eucharistic adoration, adorers report experiencing a greater sense of intimacy with Jesus, and attentiveness of mind and heart to prayer when they are able to actually “see” our Eucharistic Lord. Some people describe the difference between spending time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament exposed and spending time with Him in the tabernacle to be like the difference between conversing with a friend face-to-face and conversing with him through a closed door. Moreover, it motivates adorers to be faithful to their hours for which they are scheduled because they know that Jesus must not be left alone in the Blessed Sacrament exposed in a monstrance, whereas He can be left alone in the tabernacle. With exposition, the scheduled adorers are guardians of the Blessed Sacrament as well as adorers, so their presence is necessary.
