Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in the Chapel
Monday 8:30 AM—8:00 PM—Tuesday 8:30 AM—12:00 Noon
During the weeks of July 2 -9-16 & 23 (33) brothers and sisters of Jesus enrolled as Adorers of the Blessed Sacrament. This brings our enrollment total to 6,047 Adorers. During these weeks, our Lord was visited by 364 Adorers in the chapel for a total 360 hours.
Let it be known. If we can adore the Eucharistic presence of Christ when reposed in a tabernacle, why do we then need to expose the Blessed Sacrament on an altar? It is not essential for exposition to take place to have Eucharistic adoration, yet people 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. Moreover, according to Church regulations, exposing the Blessed Sacrament for a period of time requires the presence of a sufficient number of people to be there and therefore fosters the commitment needed to establish and sustain a meaningful parish Eucharistic adoration program. But the best reason for having exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is simply that God wills it. During His Eucharistic discourse, Jesus made this unmistakably clear: “Indeed, this is the will of My Heavenly Father, that everyone who looks upon the Son, and believes in Him, shall have eternal life”.
