A Painful and Upsetting Truth!

Let’s be frank: If we really believe that Jesus Christ is truly and  substantially present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the tabernacles of our Churches, we would be there with Him. We would do everything in our power to spend some time with Him and to encourage others to do so as well.
But we don’t really believe this essential Truth. We have abandoned our Loving Lord to his prison-tabernacle and locked the doors of His Churches so that even the few drawn to be with Him are unable to get in.
Stop for a moment and ponder this shocking reality from our Lord’s perspective. Is this anyway to treat the Son of God? Of course it isn’t.
Go visit and comfort our abandoned and forgotten Lord. Bring  a copy of  Stirring Slumbering Souls – 250 Eucharistic Reflections with you and let the wisdom it contains draw you into His loving embrace and Presence. Enlist is His army of Adorers. Let Him change you and the world!
Here is a sample of what others have recently said about Stirring Slumbering Souls:

“I”m still reading Slumbering Souls and wanted to thank you for reawakening my adoration and love of Jesus. – Patricia Grant

 

“Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful gem with me. I feel like every single Catholic should read it and have a copy and then share it with someone who isn’t and then we would be all set in this world. Such richness here and it stirs up so much in the soul.” – Anne Costa

 

 “Love your Stirring Slumbering Souls. Beautiful, inspiring work.”- Patricia Casey Vanderloo
“I absolutely LOVED this book. The saints’ quotes about the Eucharist were so profound. The author did a fantastic job getting inspirational quotes from so many different sources. I didn’t want to put this book down and have purchased it as gifts for several friends.” – An Amazon review by Janeen
Stop what you are doing and go visit Him!

 

It Is You He Awaits

“Jesus is not on His Eucharistic throne to receive the adorations of the angels and to enjoy the company of the blessed. These He finds in heaven.

But He is on His Eucharistic throne to receive your adorations, to listen to your confidences, and to console and alleviate your sorrows and trials.”

 

(Father Jose Guadalupe Trevino from The Holy Eucharist)

Linger Instead

“If more Catholics spent more time in Eucharistic adoration, I think two things would happen: many who have abandoned the regular practice of the faith might well rediscover it.  And those who have acquired the bad habit of arriving late for Mass and leaving early might want to linger instead — to spend time with the Lord who thirsts for our Love.”

Archbishop William Lori

 

Look Beyond Yourself

The uniquely Catholic devotion of Eucharistic adoration is the perfect spiritual antidote to the culture of our age.  When every other medium bombards us with the message ‘Look to yourself,’ Eucharistic adoration says: ‘Look beyond yourself. Fix your eyes on Christ!’

Archbishop Denis Hart

 

A World Without Eucharistic Adoration

“It is before the Eucharist that man recognizes that he has need of the Other to give him new energies for life’s combats. A world without (Eucharistic) adoration is a world that would be no more than the world of production, which would soon become unbreathable. A world without adoration is not only irreligious — it is inhuman!”

Cardinal Jean-Loius Tauran

To Be Treasured

“We need to immerse ourselves regularly in pools of silence; noise is an aspect of modern society which can be oppressive, and an hour of silent prayer and presence before the Eucharistic Lord is a good to be treasured.  Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament reminds us of what the Mass is meant to be worship centered on God.”

Bishop Barry Jones
