Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

St Anthony Parish

In the Garden of Gethsemane , Jesus prayed for his apostles to be strong. He was disillusioned when even the people who were closest to him were unable to stay awake while he prayed and suffered. Are you spiritually asleep? Do you yearn for something closer, richer? Come! Spend a little time with Jesus in presence of the Holy Sacrament. St Anthony Adoration is held on the first Friday of each month. Can you stay with Him? It’s just one hour? Phone Janet at 628– 6985 .

Last Tuesday evening at our RCIA class we had an interesting group assignment. The question was, How would you write, spread, or preach the Gospel proclamation Acts 10:36-43? After some discussion we decided that for most Catholics, living the Gospel out loud is their Good News Proclamation. The truth is, Jesus was and IS the Messiah. He was murdered and tortured on a cross. He rose from the dead; and He will come again. Furthermore those of us who truly believe that he is the Son of the Living God, believe that receiving Him in Eucharist and doing good to the best of our poor ability is giving God heart, hands, and body to work miracles upon the earth. In truth, we inhale the graces of Faith, Hope, and Love then spread the Gospel message by reacting with kindness, reaching out to those who need compassion, or listening to others with patience and an open heart. Each time we receive Holy Eucharist we are taking God into our bodies—what more do need on this earth or in eternity? As Catholics we are incredibly blessed to have this source of comfort and grace. God has gifted us with an endless amount of space inside ourselves in which He can dwell. However, God will never take away your free will. You can always say NO to Him. Or on the very Bright side you can say YES! Taking full advantage of the Sacraments of Catholic Church is like fortifying your soul with all the nourishment it will need to run the marathon. It is difficult if not impossible to defeat an adversary unless you have the stamina to do so. Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Eucharist, and Reconciliation are formal Sacraments that you should be taking advantage of. Others such as marriage, holy orders, and Sacrament of the Sick may or may not come later. In our church there are all kinds of prayers which are lifelines to heaven —not the least of which is the rosary, anointing, bible studies, etc. All help us to live the message with grace and gusto! Sometimes it is good to reflect on how lucky we are to be Catholic. And as we were reminded by St Francis: “Preach the Gospel always and when necessary use WORDS!”
