Eucharistic Adoration is the act of worshiping God as He is present in the consecrated Eucharist. Since the Last Supper, when Jesus broke the bread and distributed the wine saying, “This is my Body,” and “This is my Blood,” Catholics have believed that during consecration, the bread and wine truly become the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ. During Eucharistic Adoration, the consecrated host is placed in a monstrance (monstrance comes from the Latin "monstrare," to show), then places it on the altar for adoration. Students are invited to spend time with the living God through prayer, music, and contemplation.
“Adoration means entering into the depths of our hearts in communion with the Lord, who makes Himself bodily present in the Eucharist. In the monstrance, He always entrusts Himself to us and asks us to be united with His Presence, with His risen Body.” ~Pope Benedict XVI
