You are invited to Eucharist Adoration in St. Theresa's Chapel every Wednesday immediately following the 9:00am Mass until 4:30pm.
Eucharistic adoration is a practice in the Roman Catholic Church, in which the Blessed Sacrament is exposed to and adored by the faithful.
The practice of adoration traces its roots to the fact that in monasteries and convents the Blessed Sacrament was an integral part of the structure of cloistered life. One of the first possible references of reserving the Blessed Sacrament for adoration is found in the life of St. Basil, who died in 379.
The Franciscan archives credit St. Francis of Assisi (who died in 1226) for starting Eucharistic adoration in Italy. The lay practice of adoration formally began in France in 1226.
Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ who is present Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, under the appearance of the consecrated host. The host is displayed in a monstrance, typically placed on the altar.
