Let us begin: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
O Lord Jesus Christ, You who have given us Your precious Body and Blood to be our food and drink, grant that through frequent reception of You in the Holy Eucharist, I may be strengthened in mind and body to do Your holy will. Amen.
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20)
There is an intrinsic relationship between Eucharistic celebration and Eucharistic adoration. As Saint Augustine once said: ‘No-one eats the flesh without first adoring it; we should sin were we not to adore it.” In the Eucharist, the Son of God comes to meet us and desires to become one with us; eucharistic adoration is simply the natural consequence of the eucharistic celebration, which is itself the Church’s supreme act of adoration.
Receiving the Eucharist means adoring him whom we receive. Only in this way do we become one with him, and are given, as it were, a foretaste of the beauty of the heavenly liturgy.
The act of adoration outside Mass prolongs and intensifies all that takes place during the liturgical celebration itself. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament enables the faithful to experience the liturgical celebration more fully and more fruitfully.
In preparing children for their First Holy Communion, they need to be taught the meaning and the beauty of spending time with Jesus, and helped to cultivate a sense of awe before his presence in the Eucharist. I thank You, my Jesus, not only for becoming my food but also for offering Yourself as a continual sacrifice to Your Eternal Father for my salvation.
