Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
Truly Present in the Holy Eucharist
I place all my trust in you!

One of the devotions that I have found central to my own life is Eucharistic Adoration. The time I spend before the Blessed Sacrament is truly holy and grace-filled. While I am there, I am surrounded by the Presence of God, wrapped in His arms, surrounded by wave after wave of His Divine Love. In those moments, I offer up my own praise and adoration--thanking Him for His Love and Presence in my life, for the depths of His great Sacrifice.


Working in lay formation for the past six years (and specifically youth formation for the past nineteen), I can truly say that Eucharistic Adoration has been the 'foundation' of all of the effective formation programs that I have been a part of. I have been utterly humbled and blessed to see the transformation that occurs in people as they encounter Christ in the Eucharist--particularly in a retreat setting, where people have cleared space and time in their busy schedule and have been hearing, discussing, and reflecting on the reality of Christ's Love for them. As Bernadette mentioned in her earlier post, their hearts (the center of who they are) have been tilled and prepared and they have an encounter (for many of them their first) of the Presence of Christ.

Bernadette's post got me to thinking about what has been fruitful and effective in my life and in the lives of others when it comes to fostering a relationship with God and supporting that relationship intentionally.
What about you?

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
