Eucharistic Adoration

“I think we are familiar now on tv on our own remote that we can freeze frame . Exposition is the ‘freeze framing’ of the centre of the Mass when we participate in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. Jesus gave himself completely to us by his death on the cross , and he prefigured this moment with his special meal with the apostles at the Last Supper.

When we celebrate and ‘remember’ these two connected events in the Mass it is called the Consecration . This is the moment when we believe the bread and the wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus. This sacramental change is called Transubstantiation.

It is recognition that God who is also called throughout the Bible ‘Emmanuel’ is with us and God being God keeps his word and is with us in the gift of the Eucharist or the Blessed Sacrament as we call the consecrated Bread, changed into the body of Jesus and normally kept in the Tabernacle in all Catholic Churches and Chapels.

Today we are demonstrating Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament by using a Monstrance , a precious holder of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

So now in the presence of Jesus we can acknowledge the gift of Jesus to the world at Calvary , and speak to him ‘heart to heart’ in the quiet of the chapel and think about our relationship with Jesus , and also all the relationships in our life and our journey to Heaven where please God we will then see Jesus face to face and understand the wonderful plan of God in the gift of the Eucharist to be present to us on Earth as a foretaste of heaven.”

– Fr John Paul

 

 

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in Heaven,

Hallowed be thy name;

Thy kingdom come

Thy will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

And forgive us our trespasses

As we forgive those who trespass against us;

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from evil.

 

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace.

the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women,

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death.

 

 

Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

Courage to change the things I can,

And wisdom to know the difference.

 

The Newman Prayer

May the Lord support us all the day long,

till the shades lengthen and the evening comes,

and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over,

and our work is done.

Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging,

and a holy rest and peace at the last.

 

Prayer of St Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

where there is sadness, joy;

 

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

to be understood as to understand;

to be loved as to love.

 

For it is in giving that we receive;

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

 

Glory be to the Father

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Amen.

 

 

Prayer for the Dead

Eternal rest grant unto them,

O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.

May the souls of the faithful departed,

through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Amen.
