Dear Parish Family,

Our Pope Saint John Paul the Great Perpetual Adoration Chapel has brought many graces to the parish. Thank you to everyone who has committed to an hour or more of adoration each week. For those who have not yet committed, I would like to offer the following thoughts for you as you prayerfully consider committing to adoration at Our Lady of Lourdes:

  • “The Church and the world have a great need of eucharistic adoration.” — Pope St. John Paul II, Dominicae Cenae
  • “My joy, my pleasure, my delight is to be with you.” — Prov 8:31
  • “Our communal worship at Mass must go together with our personal worship of Jesus in Eucharistic adoration in order that our love may be complete.” — Pope St. John Paul II, Redeemer of Man
  • “Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love.” — Pope St. John Paul II, Dominicae Canae
  • “I myself am the living bread come down from heaven.” — Jesus Christ, in Jn 6:35
  • “Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Jesus and ready to make reparation for the great evils of the world. Let your adoration never cease.” — Pope St. John Paul II, Dominicae Cenae
  • “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive honor, glory and praise.” — Rev. 5:12
  • “Christ is reserved in our churches as the spiritual center of the heart of the community, the universal Church and all humanity, since within the veil of the species, Christ is contained, the invisible heart of the Church, the Redeemer of the world, the center of all hearts, by him all things are and of whom we exist.” — Pope Paul IV, Mysterium Fidei
  • “Could you not watch one hour with me?” — Mt 26:40
  • “Our essential commitment in life is to preserve and advance constantly in Eucharistic life and Eucharistic piety and to grow spiritually in the climate of the Holy Eucharist.” — Pope St. John Paul II, Redeemer of Man

Peace,
Dcn. Richard
