Exposition and Benediction: A Message from Father Mark

Unfortunately, the lack of familiarity with exposition and benediction of the Blessed Sacrament is not uncommon these days.  For whatever reason, this beautiful ritual disappeared.  A Holy Hour is the Roman Catholic devotional tradition of spending an hour in Eucharistic adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.  As Catholics, we believe Christ is present body, blood, soul and divinity in the Eucharist.  Adoration gives us a quiet time in the presence of Christ in the Eucharist.

Adoration allows us to push the pause button in our lives.  It gives us a time to reflect on our lives and our faith.  It gives us time to take an assessment in our relationship with Christ.  It gives us time to plot a course for the days ahead.  Come for an hour, or simply come and go.

--Fr. Mark
