Quotes On The Importance Of Eucharistic Adoration
"A Forgotten Source Of Blessings:
Solemn Exposition Of The Blessed Sacrament" By St. Peter J. Eymard
"Let us never forget that an age prospers or dwindles
in proportion to its devotion to the Holy Eucharist. This is the measure of
its spiritual life and its faith, of its charity and its virtue."
"The Real Presence: Eymard Library" By
St. Peter J. Eymard, Emmanuel Publications
"The object of Eucharistic
adoration is the divine person of our Lord Jesus Christ present in the
most Blessed Sacrament. He is living there. He wants us to speak to him,
and he will speak to us. Anybody may speak to our Lord. Is he not there
for everybody? Does he not tell us, "Come you all to me"?"
"The grace of (Eucharistic Adoration) is given to
everybody. In order, however, to succeed in it and avoid routine or dryness
of mind and heart, adorers must seek inspiration in the grace of their
vocation, in the various mysteries of the life of our Lord and of the
Blessed Virgin, or in the virtues of the saints."
"When your hour is particularly difficult, rejoice
all the more; your love will be greater for its suffering more. It is a
privileged hour that will count for two."
"Love cannot triumph unless it becomes the one
passion of our life. Without such passion we may produce isolated acts of
love; but our life is not really won over or consecrated to an ideal. Until
we have a passionate love for our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament we
shall accomplish nothing."
"Look upon the hour of adoration assigned to you as
an hour in paradise. Go to your adoration as one would to heaven, to the
divine banquet. You will then long for that hour and hail it with joy. Take
delight in fostering a longing for it in your heart. Tell yourself, "In four
hours, in two hours, in one hour, our Lord will give me an audience of grace
and love. He has invited me; he is waiting for me; he is longing for me."
"St. Joseph: Perpetual Adorer" By St.
Peter J. Eymard
"Among the graces which Jesus gave to His
foster-father is that special to an adorer of the Blessed Sacrament. That is
the one we must ask of St. Joseph. Have confidence, strong confidence in
him. Take him as the patron and the model of your life of adoration."
"With Mary Let Us Adore Him!" By St.
Peter J. Eymard
"Society will again someday become Christian won to
Jesus Christ by the apostolate of Eucharistic Prayer."
"Eucharistic Adoration is the most necessary mission
to the Church, which has even more need of prayerful souls than of powerful
preachers or men of eloquence."
"Eucharistic adorers share Mary's life and mission of
prayer at the foot of the Most Blessed Sacrament. It is the most beautiful
of all missions, and it holds no perils. It is the most holy, for in it all
the virtues are practiced."
"Today more than ever have we need of men who, by their self-immolation,
disarm the anger of God inflamed by the ever increasing crimes of nations. We must have souls
who by their importunity re-open the treasures of grace which the indifference of the multitude has
closed. We must have true adorers; that is to say, men of fervor and of sacrifice."
"A Eucharistic Handbook" By St. Peter
J. Eymard, Emmanuel Publications
"The adoration of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament
is the end of the Church Militant, just as adoration of God in His glory is
the end of the Church Triumphant. A holy rivalry, a concert of prayer, a
harmony of divine service should exist between the heavenly court and the
Eucharistic court here below, between the adorer and his mother the Church."
"Eucharistic Adoration is the greatest act of
holiness on earth."

and as our hearts become more sympathetic to Him in emptying themselves of
what is not him, our Lord manifests Himself in a clearer and more intimate
manner...He gives the soul a divine conviction which overshadows the light
of human reason."
"Jesus Christ in His Sacrament lives the same life of
love which consumed Him in His mortal days. In His sacramental state He
continues to adore His Father by His depthless self-abasement. He is still
the Mediator and Interceder with divine goodness for the salvation of men."
"Come, let the kingdom of Jesus Christ be established
in you! Public Exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament is God's last grace

the Divine Master when he came down from Mount Sinai, like the Apostles
coming from the Cenacle, so should the priests go from the church (in
Eucharistic Adoration) straight to the people to announce to them the Word
"The great evil of our time is that people do not go
to Jesus Christ as to their very Saviour and God. They abandon the only
foundation, the only law, the only grace of salvation... What is to be done
then? We must return to the fountain of life, and not just to the historical
Jesus nor to the Jesus glorified in heaven, but rather to Jesus in the
Eucharist. It is necessary to bring him out from the shadows so that he can
once again take his place at the head of Christian society."
"Going to the source, to Jesus,
especially Jesus in the Eucharist. That is the mission and glory of our
century, so it will be great among the greatest centuries, and saint among
the most holy. As it is well known, a century grows or decreases because of
his worship for the Holy Eucharist. This is life and the extent of his
faith, his love and virtue."

at any hour of the day or night. His Love never knows rest. He is always

you, one would think He has need of you to make Him happy."
