In the liturgy of the Mass, we express our faith in the real presence of Christ under the species of bread and wine by, among other ways, genuflecting or bowing deeply as a sign of adoration of the Lord. “The Catholic Church has always offered and still offers to the sacrament of the Eucharist the cult of adoration, not only during Mass, but also outside of it, reserving the consecrated hosts with the utmost care, exposing them to the solemn veneration of the faithful, and carrying them in procession.” -From the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 1378
How can you participate in this “cult of adoration” of the Eucharist? First of all, we strongly encourage you to join us every third Saturday of the month for Frassati Night! You can also attend Adoration every Wednesday from 7-8pm at Saints Philip and James.
