For the past 10 years, we have been blessed to have Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration here in at St. Benilde Parish. Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and the night.
Christ’s great love for us was shown when He was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist. Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return?
Come to our Perpetual Adoration Chapel and spend some time with our Lord. He is waiting there to embrace you, lovingly and mercifully! You may bring your own prayer books (or use the books in the Adoration Room), pray the Rosary, pray the Psalms or the Liturgy of the Hours, and meditate using Scriptures. You are coming to visit your best friend, pour your heart out! Tell Him about your joys and worries, thank Him, ask for guidance and strength, ask for forgiveness and intercede for others or just sit in silence and enjoy the sweet peace that comes from simply being in the Presence of God!
The Second Vatican Council proclaimed that the Eucharist is the “source and summit of the Christian life.” The transforming power of spending a quiet hour with Jesus cannot be overestimated!
The parishioners of St. Benilde Parish built the Eucharistic Chapel to make this privilege of Eucharistic Adoration available to us on perpetual basis. The chapel is open 24 hours a day except when it closes on Saturdays at 4 p.m. and reopens after the 6 p.m. Sunday Mass and for some holidays.
Those who visit the hidden Jesus regularly can enthusiastically attest to the marvelous graces they receive during these encounters. There was a commercial that said, “Try it, you will like it!” Try spending time with Jesus on a regular basis and you will love it, because it will change your life. Prayerfully consider a commitment to sign up for one hour a week.
