My vocation as a Lay Dominican created an insatiable desire to learn, study, live and share my Faith. For more than ten years I led a Prison Ministry program and have spent more than a decade promoting Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. Now retired, I aspire to promote zeal for the salvation of souls, awe and amazement for the Holy Eucharist and Eucharistic Adoration, and fidelity to the Truths of our Catholic Faith.

One thought on “The Reverence Our Lord Deserves”
Michael, I came to the same realisation when on an 8 day retreat with the Jesuits in North Wales in 2011. I noted it in my journal at the time :-
Here is the very Presence of God – in the Body of Jesus Christ,
Lifted up for all to gaze upon.
Raised on a throne of glass,
This is, in a very real sense, The Throne Room of God.
“Fall on your knees in adoration,
prostrate yourself in total submission,
and remove your shoes for
‘This is Holy Ground,
You are standing on Holy Ground,
For the Lord is here,
And where He is, is Holy’ ”
