Tonight we are to have Adoration at Marsh Drive.
Because Roman Catholics believe that Christ is truly present (Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity) in the Eucharist, the reserved sacrament serves as a focal point of adoration. The Catechism of the Catholic Church (item 1377) states that: “The Eucharistic presence of Christ begins at the moment of the consecration and endures as long as the Eucharistic species subsist.”
Preparing the Children
- The sign of the cross
- Embrace moments of silence mixed with a few words from Holy Scripture or meditations to help the adorers listen to Jesus in the silence of their hearts
- Offer intentions silently and then take turns sharing our petitions aloud.
- Let the children know their adoration is VERY IMPORTANT
