Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament...
Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ truly present in the Holy Eucharist-
The Eucharist (consecrated Host of communion bread) is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance. As Catholics, we believe in Christ's real presence of body, soul, and divinity in the Eucharist. We come to pray and worship in His presence continually throughout the day and evening.
Christ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy sacrament of the Eucharist. Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return?
For more information about Eucharistic Adoration, please follow this link to EWTN.
Adoration Thursday’s beginning this Thursday, Jan. 5th hours will be 8:00AM until 6:00PM.
Due to the RE traffic and safety of all, the day and hours of have changed.Need more parishioners during the afternoon and evening hours to come spend an hour with Jesus. If you would like to volunteer for 30 minutes or an hour of your time please call the office at 52-398-4649 to sign up.
We acknowledge our committed parishioners who have been very devoted to The Blessed Sacrament and have committed one hour of their week to our Lord and our Blessed Mother. Both love us very much and want to have a close relationship with us.
We welcome more parishioners to please join us in the commitment that will help us to become more holy.

I WAIT FOR YOU
Jesus Lament Over Man's Indifference
Selected and Arranged From:
The Way Of Divine Love Of Sister Josefa Menendez
“Contemplate Me in the prison where I spent the greater part of the night. The soldiers came and, adding words to injuries, insulted Me, mocked Me , outraged Me, and gave Me blows on My face and on My whole body. “Tired of their sport, at length they left Me bound and alone in the dark and noisome place,where,seated on a stone , My aching body was cramped with cold. “Compare the prison with the Tabernacle...and especially with the hearts that receive Me.
“In the prison I spent only part of one night...but in the Tabernacle, how many days and nights? “In the prison I was insulted and ill-treated by soldiers who were My enemies. In the Tabernacle most often it is they who call Me their Father who treat Me thus, but how unlike that of children is the treatment!.. “In the prison I endured old,sleeplessness,hunger and thirst,pain, shame,solitude, and desertion. And there passed before My mind's eye all the tabernacles where in the course of ages I should lack the shelter of love...the icy-cold hearts that would be as hard and unfeeling as the stones of the prison floor were to My numbed and wounded body. “And how often should I wait for this or that other soul to visit Me in the Blessed Sacrament and receive Me into his heart...how many nights should I spend longing for his coming...but he would let business or carelessness or anxiety for his health get the better of him...and he would not come! “How often should I hunger for souls ...for their fidelity...for their generosity...would they satisfy that eager hunger by a little victory over self or by a slight mortification?...
