PARISHIONERS NEEDED!!
FOR EUCHARISTIC ADORATION
 
Nothing we do is more intimate or more adoring
than receiving the Eucharist,
the very Body and Blood of Christ, in holy Communion.
 
We experience and unite ourselves to Jesus.
Holy Mother Church has long affirmed devotions that extend this miraculous event beyond the confines of the Mass.
 
One such common devotion is Eucharistic Adoration.
 
During Eucharistic Adoration,
the faithful pray to Jesus, Who is present in the Eucharist.
He is not a symbol or Bread -
We receive and adore, the actual and Real Presence of Christ!
 
True, we pray to God anywhere and He is always with us,
but it is especially powerful to adore Jesus in the Eucharist.
 
In His presence in the Eucharist,
we pray to His power and sacrifice
given to His beloved creatures, us, so that we may live.
 
Displayed on the altar in a beautiful monstrance,
Jesus' Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus,
that is really, truly, and substantially present in the Eucharist.
*********************************************************************
We need you and others to
be Eucharistic Adoration adorers
and sign up for a time on Fridays between 9 and 3.

FIRST EUCHARISTIC MIRACLE
 
"Miracle Hunter" Michael O'Neill traveled to Lanciano, Italy,
the site of perhaps the first and greatest Eucharistic miracle!
 
A Basilian monk in 750 AD had doubts about the Real Presence -
and a Eucharistic host visibly turned to true flesh and blood!
 
Numerous scientific tests up through modern times
have confirmed the reality of this occurrence!
 
The beauty of this miracle reflects our Lord's words,
I am the Bread of Life.
He who feeds on my Flesh and drinks my Blood has life eternal
and I will raise him up on the last day.
For my Flesh is real food and my Blood real drink.
The man who feeds on my Flesh and drinks my Blood
remains in Me, and I in him.
(Jn 6:35, 54-56)
