Adoration - Eternal Benefits

My Dear People,

Is Jesus Pulling You Aside?

So eager were the crowds to see Jesus, that He could barely find a quiet place to be alone. As soon as word got out that He was coming to that region, people would begin to swell in in large numbers. In today's Gospel, Mark tells us that Jesus pulled aside the Twelve Apostles, in order that He might pray with them. But because of the vast crowd, it was difficult to find peace and quiet. Do you have an Eucharistic Adoration Chapel or times the Church is unlocked?

Like the Apostles, we have to make time for peace and quiet. If you have lax in coming to visit our Eucharistic Lord, make up your mind to begin again. For those of you who have never even made a visit to be with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, please pray about beginning as well. It sad to know how much blessings we miss by not sacrificing time to go to Adoration. This is holy prayer that will last into eternity. Please pray about making a Holy Hour with Jesus each and every week!

May we find comfort in the love of Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament. Trusting that He gives us all that we need.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,

Fr. Mark

Our priest mad his sermon on finding time to spend with family, and to find time to spend with God. I wish he had encouraged people to come to our weekly Friday Adoration. there are only about a dozen of us who go, and there are about 2-3 hundred parishioners here.
