Manual for Eucharistic Adoration
by Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration, St. Joseph
“I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament.” —J.R.R. Tolkien
Eucharistic adoration according to Fr. Frederick Faber is “the queen of all devotions.” Pope St. Pius X taught that it was the devotion “most profitable for our salvation.” And St. Gemma Galgani treasured it as “the school of Paradise where one learns how to love.”
So many popes and saints exhort us to spend time with our Eucharistic Lord. And the Manual for Eucharistic Adoration will enrich your hours with Him.
Part One, “Preparing for Eucharistic Adoration,” answers these questions:
What is Eucharistic adoration, and why is it so important?
What does Scripture teach about this devotion?
What are the fruits of Eucharistic adoration?
How should I spend my time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament?
Part Two, “Aids in Eucharistic Adoration,” provides these essential resources:
Teaching about the Eucharist from Scripture and Church documents
Scripture verses for adoration, wisdom, and inspiration from saints especially devoted to our Eucharistic Lord
Prayers, Rosary meditations, reflections, and hymns
Mother Teresa once said: “The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth.” Take this great saint’s words to heart. Then take the Manual for Eucharistic Adoration when you go to meet Him, and keep it with you during Spiritual Communions and other moments of
spontaneous adoration throughout the day.

Excerpts from this Book:
"In our self-centered culture and classic American emphasis on work, we often feel we have to accomplish something during our times of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. We rate our experience by how 'good' our prayer was, how heartfelt our devotion was, or how focused we could remain. Yet prayer and contemplation are fundamentally God's work, in which we are invited to participate. We need only to give Him the opening, and He will do the rest. By coming to adoration, we are handing Him the keys to our hearts, allowing the rays of His love and grace to bathe our souls in the light of His Presence, as the rays of the sunbathe our bodies in the light.If we can take the time to pull away from the busyness and distractions of life and just sit at His feet, He will lead us."
— Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration, p. 33
"No one can fail to understand that the Divine Eucharist bestows upon the Christian people an incomparable dignity. Not only while the Sacrifice is offered and the Sacrament is received, but as long as the Eucharist is kept in our churches and oratories, Christ is truly Emmanuel, that is, 'God with us'. Day and night He is in our midst, He dwells with us, full of grace and truth. He restores morality, nourishes virtues, consoles the afflicted, strengthens the weak. He proposes His own example to those who come to Him that all may learn to be, like Himself, meek and humble of heart and to seek not their own interests but those of God. Anyone who approaches this august Sacrament with special devotion and endeavors to return generous love for Christ's own infinite love, will experience and fully understand—not without spiritual joy and fruit—how precious is the life hidden with Christ in God and how great is the value of converse with Christ, for there is nothing more consoling on earth, nothing more efficacious for advancing along the road of holiness."
— Bl. Pope Paul VI, p.52
