We need at least a minimum of two adorers per hour. The restrictions that were in place have now been lifted, therefore we are no longer limited as to the number of adorers allowed at any given hour.
Always remember that Our Lord must never be left alone. If an emergency arises that you find you must leave and there is no one else in the church. Please call as you would for a Sacramental Emergency. Call the emergency number: 703-817-1777 - press 1 when prompted for a Sacramental Emergency. Tell the person that it is an emergency, where you are at Adoration, and that it is necessary that you must leave, and that there is no one present within the church/chapel to releive you. They will immediately be in touch with the priest that is on call. Please remember that this should be implemented only in extreme rare cases where it is imperative that you must leave immediately.
Your continued support and faithfulness to Eucharistic Adoration here at Saint Andrew's is deeply appreciated.
"O God of Love, nothing in Thee flatters man's vanity. The proud forsake Thee; The ambitious neglect Thee. Scientists deny Thee. The rich abandon Thee. Warriors desert Thee. Merchants forsake Thee.
Where are the elect?
They are to be found in The Adorers of The August Sacrament in The Eucharist, God's Love is brought to all men!" (Ven. Pauline-Marie Jaricot)
There is no set format or order for making holy hours of prayer with Jesus. Traditional suggestions include four 15-minute steps, remembering the acronym ACTS:
Adoration - Recognize and enter into God's Presence with awe and love. Adore God.
Contrition - Repent. Make reparation for your sins and those of the whole world.
Thanksgiving - Praise, thank, worship God.
Supplication - Intercede for the salvation & sanctification of souls. Pray for graces for yourself, your neighbour and the whole world.
Suggestions: Listen to God, Contemplate, Pray the Divine Office, Rosary, Chaplet of Divine Mercy or other prayers. Do spiritual reading. Make resolutions.
"The Eucharist is the secret of my day. It gives strength and meaning to all my activities of service to the Church and to the whole world. Let Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament speak to your hearts. It is He who is the true answer of life that you seek. He stays here with us: He is God with us. Seek Him without tiring, welcome Him without reserve, Love Him without interruption: today, tomorrow, forever."
Saint John Paul II
"The purpose of the Holy Hour is to encourage a deep personal encounter with Christ. The Holy and Glorious God is constantly inviting us to come to Him, to hold converse with Him, to ask for such things as we need and to experience what a Blessing there is in fellowship with Him!" (Archbishop Fulton Sheen)
"Trust all things to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and to Mary, Help of Christians and you will see what miracles are!" (St. John Bosco)
"The only time Our Lord asked the Apostles for anything was the night He went into agony. Not for activity did He plead, but for an hour of companionship."(Archbishop Fulton Sheen)
"The Devotion to the Eucharist is the most noble because it has God as its object, it is the most profitable for salvation, because it gives us the Author of Grace; it is the sweetest, because the Lord is Sweetness itself." (St. Pius X)
