Quotes On The Importance Of Eucharistic Adoration
2001 - Cardinal Bergoglio Letter To
Catechists In Archdiocese Of Buenos Aires
"The Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us that
in the Eucharist we find all the good of the Church. In it we have the
certainty that God is faithful to His promise and stays with us until the
end of time (Mt. 28.20)... In (our) visits and adoration of the Blessed
Sacrament, we experience the closeness of the good Shepherd, the tenderness
of His love, the presence of (a) faithful friend. We ... all experience
(this) large support (in our lives) provided by faith (and our) personal and
intimate dialogue with the (Lord in the Eucharist)."
June 17, 2006 - Homily On The Feast Of
"The certainty of this Bread Of Life is clear. That

June 18, 2008 - "The Eucharist,
Gift Of God For The Life Of The World" Catechesis at International

Sept. 11, 2008 - The Aparecida Message To Priests
"Being Christian is not the result of an idea, but
the encounter with a living person."
July 7, 2013 - Homily During Sunday Mass
"...Dear young people discerning your vocations:
evangelization is done on one’s knees... . Always be men and women of
prayer! Without a constant relationship with God, the mission becomes a
job. The risk of activism, of relying too much on structures, is an
ever-present danger. If we look towards Jesus, we see that prior to any
important decision or event he recollected himself in intense and prolonged
prayer. Let us cultivate the contemplative dimension, even amid the
whirlwind of more urgent and pressing duties."
Oct. 12, 2013 - Video Message To
Marian Shrines Around The World
"This evening I am united to all of you in praying
the Holy Rosary and in Eucharistic adoration under the gaze of the Virgin
Mary. ... In the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Mary says to us: "Look
at my son Jesus, keep your gaze fixed on him, listen to him, speak with him.
He is gazing at you with love. Do not be afraid! He will teach you to follow
him and to bear witness to him in all that you do, whether great and small,
in your family life, at work, at times of celebration. He will teach you to
go out of yourself and to look upon others with love, as he did. He loved
you and loves you, not with words but with deeds"."
May 31, 2013 - Feast Of Corpus Christi
"Let us ask ourselves this evening, adoring the
Christ truly present in the Eucharist: do I let myself be transformed by
Him? Do I let the Lord who gives Himself to me, guide me to come out more
and more from my little fence, to get out and be not afraid to give, to
share, to love Him and others?"
Nov. 24, 2013 - "Evangelii Gaudium
(The Joy Of The Gospel)" Apostolic Letter
"Without prolonged moments of adoration, of prayerful
encounter with the word, of sincere conversation with the Lord, our work
easily becomes meaningless; we lose energy as a result of weariness and
difficulties, and our fervour dies out. The Church urgently needs the deep
breath of prayer, and to my great joy groups devoted to prayer and
intercession, the prayerful reading of God’s word and the perpetual
adoration of the Eucharist are growing at every level of ecclesial life."
Other Pope Francis Quotes On
"What I really prefer is adoration in the evening, even when I get
distracted and think of other things, or even fall asleep praying. In the
evening then, between seven and eight o’clock, I stay in front of the
Blessed Sacrament for an hour in adoration."
"If we are to know the Lord, we must go to Him. Listen to Him in
silence before the Tabernacle and approach Him in the Sacraments."
