Rev. Anthony Giamello Pastor, St. John the Apostle/St. Bernadette

My brothers and sisters, I invite you to attend Eucharistic Adoration on Monday’s at St. John’s from 9:30am-6:45pm. Eucharistic Adoration is a transformative experience during which we are slowly but surely transformed by the Divine Presence to be more Christ-like. This means that simply being in Jesus’s Presence will allow God to transform our hearts and minds. If you have trouble with silent prayer, it is perfectly acceptable to pray a Rosary, journal, or read from the Bible or another spiritual book. What matters most is that we are there, abiding in God’s presence.

If you feel that spending 30 minutes to an hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament in Adoration is a waste of time, I encourage you to remember the story of Martha and Mary. When Jesus and His disciples arrived at the house of Martha and Mary after a long day of walking, Martha ran around the house making food, preparing drinks, and doing the other duties of a host while Mary simply sat at the feet of Jesus. When Martha complained to Jesus that He should tell Mary to help her, Jesus said to Martha, “Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; but only one is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her” (Luke 10:41-42). Jesus does not ask much of us, and He reminds us in this story about Martha and Mary that all God wants from us is for us to trust in Him and spend some time sitting at His feet. Eucharistic Adoration is our chance to act like Mary and simply sit at the feet of Jesus.
