On “Adoration”

But what’s really the purpose of Adoration, Sr. ?

To be united. 

To strengthen our own faith. 

To be able to do the work. 

Why is it called Adoration? 

Because we adore the Blessed Sacrament (as exposed).

It’s the same when you go to the house of the king, the palace of the king. What is your purpose to go there? You talk to the king. You listen. To receive the strength to do the work. 

That’s adoration? 

To adore. Adore. 

You don’t really look for answers. You are there to adore.

To adore, 

You have praise,

You have thanksgiving. 

Whatever He wants, you are open. So He can send us the Holy Spirit. Through Him He can send us the grace. 

Lord, here am I! 

Fill me with Your grace. 

Fill me with Your self. 

To be able to do. 

To bring others to You. 

Sometimes you don’t say anything. You don’t know what to say. You just stay there. 

That’s okay? 

Okay. Very okay.  It’s a prayer in reality. Because we are open to whatever He wants. 

So it’s okay if you don’t know what to say? What to pray? 

It’s okay. It’s okay. 

Sometimes you get lost. 

Sometimes you can fall asleep. Probably the best prayer. Because you are not forcing yourself to pray. (Laughs) 


There’s nothing wrong.  Just be there. 

You can just say, 

I love you Lord. That’s prayer. 

Thank you Lord. That’s prayer. 

But of course you want your own prayer. 

Lord … because I want to ask you this this this. That’s not prayer. 

That’s making demands? 

(Laughingly nods) 

Lord, thank you.  Thank you for the grace.
