Dear Saint Teresa Parishioners,
With all the challenges of COVID-19, Washington politics, election irregularities and general moral decay, many of us feel disconcerted, perhaps even fearful. Many Adorers report complete peace of mind when making their Holy Hour when the Eucharist is exposed. Perhaps you’ve had the same feelings. My wife mentioned this feeling of peace during adoration.
On Wednesday, something beautiful happened at Holy Hour for me. We’ve all read the Bible passage “come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” Today I was struck by an understanding of what that Bible passage meant. Think about the opening words “Come to me.” I had always understood that passage as just come to Jesus anytime. Today I understood the words “Come to me” as meaning ‘come to Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration and He will give us rest. It is at the exposed Eucharist we are face to face with the living God. Face to Face. It is the same at Holy Mass.
If you feel called, please share your experiences or effect of Eucharistic Adoration with your brothers and sisters in Christ and encourage them to spend time with our Lord.
We have just two openings to fill on Wednesdays and Fridays for Advent. It’s only for 3 weeks; please consider signing up for a slot.
With gratitude for your faithfulness to Christ and His Church
