Back from the Procession...

I'm back from our Eucharistic procession and it was so solemn and beautiful. We only went around one block, but that time was filled with prayer. For my Lord led the way. He was there! My God was leading the way passed businesses, homes, and parking lots. And, what did I realize? That others do not know Him! He died for them in torments unutterable and they don't know Him! Some would slow down in their cars and glance at us. Most would keep on talking on their cellphones and drive on. Some would stop and look but no one else joined in. Our Lord was there and they did not know Him. And we, miserable sinners, continue to offend Him.

How merciful Our Lord is...

Prayer for the Spread of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration

Heavenly Father, increase our faith in the Real Presence of Your Son, Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. We are obliged to adore Him, to give Him thanks and to make reparation for sins. We need Your peace in our hearts and among nations. We need converstion from our sins and the mercy of Your forgiveness. May we obtain this through prayer and our union with the Eucharistic Lord. Please send down the Holy Spirit upon all peoples to give them the love, courage, strength and willingness to respond to the invitation to Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. We beseech You to spread Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament in parishes around the world. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament help us to spread the glory of Your Son through Perpetual Eucharisitic Adoration.

Eucharistic Prayer

Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, My God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament!

"Could you not watch one hour with Me..."

You know in the last Gospel read after the close of the Tridentine Mass, (The beginning of the Gospel accoring to John) it says "...and the world knew him not"?
Abp. Sheen wrote a beautiful essay on that, which centered upon his main thought about it - "What tragedy!"
Jesus came into the world, and healed the sick, and died for the world, and the world knew Him not.
Everytime I'm at Mass now and we come to that part, my eyes sort of well up. What tragedy, indeed!
