WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS (JOHN 15; 15)
Would you like to know Jesus in a personal way?
Come and experience a true personal Encounter with the Living God.
Adoration is an encounter with the Lord Jesus. Even if we are not able to concentrate on Him, He is always open to us. “Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut” (Revelation 3; 8.) Adoration gives us an opportunity to speak with God without interruption.
The Monstrance reminds us of Malachi 4; 2; “But for you who revere My Name the sun (Son) of righteousness shall rise, with healing in its (His) wings.”
We praise and thank Jesus at Adoration, and we also pray for many things; for example, for the intentions written in the book in the porch; for healing for people we know; for the Parish, and for Ireland.
We are also reminded of 2 Chronicles 7, 14-16. “… if My people who are called by My Name humble themselves, and pray and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My Eyes will be open and My Ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. For n
ow I have chosen and consecrated this house that My Name may be there for ever; My Eyes and My Heart will be there for all time.”
We can pray in particular at this time against the CORONAVIRUS; for protection; for healing for those affected; against panic and fear. Psalm 91 says that whoever “dwells in the shelter of the Most High, who abides in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord ‘My refuge and my fortress; my God in whom I trust’. For He will deliver you … from the deadly pestilence … You will not fear the … pestilence that stalks in darkness …”
At present ADORATION takes place in the Church from 10.30 am until 11 am on Tuesdays. Please join our Virtual Parish Community via our webcam.
