I have been spending a lot of time lately at Adoration and to me, it is the best way to connect with God to feel His nearness and to be able to listen to him through the silence.
Pater tales queril qui adoreni cum…in spiritu et veritate
The Father seeks us to adore Him….in spirit and in truth ~ John 4:23
The object of Eucharistic adoration is the Divine Person of our Lord Jesus Christ present in the Most Blessed Sacrament, He is living there, He wants us to speak to Him, and He will speak to us. Anybody may speak to the Lord. Is He not there for everyone?
This conversation between the soul and our Lord is the true Eucharistic adoration.
Faith pure and detached from the senses and free in its action unites us simply to the truth of Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament. “The flesh profits nothing’” says the Savior. “My words are spirit and life.”
His whole life our Lord prepared the Eucharist in secret, the heavenly wheat was, as it were, sown in Bethlehem the “house of bread”. See the wheat on the straw, trodden and crushed representing poor humanity, of itself barren. The grain sown, the tears of Jesus will make it grow into beautiful wheat. Bethlehem is built on a hill facing Jerusalem, when the ear is ripened, it shall lean toward Calvary where it shall be ground and be set on the fire of suffering to become a living bread.
One likes to penetrate a veiled truth, to discover a hidden treasure, to triumph over a difficulty. In like manner the faithful soul, in the presence of the Eucharistic veil, seeks the Lord like Mary Magdalene at the tomb. Her longing for Him grows more intense. Like the bride in Canticle of Canticles she calls for Him. She delights in ascribing to Him everything that is beautiful, in adoring Him with every kind of glory. The Eucharist is to her what God is to the blessed: a truth and beauty ever old and ever new, that one never tires of fathoming and looking into.
Quaeram quem diligit anima mea! “O Lord, beloved of my soul I will seek Thee forever. Show me thy adorable face!”
