A “Simple Adorer” Who Helped Save an Adoration Chapel

StDominicThis is an email from a chapel leader in New Orleans whose Church began using the Adoration Servants system to manage their Eucharistic Adoration starting two years ago when the adoration hours were being drastically cut back primarily due to chapel leader burnout. To read about that click here. After sending an email to all Adoration Servants chapel leaders notifying them of our recent document “Evangelii Gaudium and Eucharistic Adoration” Edie replied with this nice letter.

It is posted here to show the impact a “simple adorer” can have. The “sweat of her brow” as Pope Francis called for in Evangelii Gaudium, is now responsible for literally hundreds of holy hours being prayed in New Orleans and God knows how much good as a result.

The Key to the Implementation of Evangelii Gaudium is Eucharistic Adoration!

Evangelii Gaudium and Eucharistic Adoration
April 2, 2014 The 9th Anniversary of the Death of John Paul II

The purpose of this document is to show how Eucharistic Adoration—specifically Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, as hoped for by John Paul II to take place in every parish in the world—is the key to the successful establishment of the many “exhortations” of Pope Francis as he declared in his Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium.

A Summary of the Exhortations of Evangelii Guadium

KolbePortraitThe Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Guadium was given by Pope Francis on November 24, the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, and concluded the Year of Faith 2013. It contains over 51,000 words and is filled with many specific “exhortations” contained in statements with words like “we must”, “we need to”, “it is imperative”, “let us”, “it is essential”, etc. Upon its publication much was written as far as comments, good and bad, much bad. This exhortation is a plea from the Holy Father for the Catholic world to live the Gospel message and evangelize the world. To do so Pope Francis tells of many things we need to do.

This document is an extraction of all the “exhortation” statements found within the document as Adoration Servants studies it with the ultimate purpose of using it to help show the Catholic world that Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration in every parish, as formally hoped for by Pope John Paul II is the key tool to bring about what Pope Francis hopes for in Evangelii Gaudium. The summary presented below is merely an in-process version towards the Eucharistic Adoration promotion.

The 51,000 words of the full Apostolic Exhortation have be reduced to less than 10,000 words of actual exhortations.  Every word, except a small comment regarding paragraphs 146 through 159 are directly from Evangelii Gaudium. No commentary, just direct papal “exhortations.”

You can read through this and absorb only the actual exhortations and hopefully use them to get an idea of what you yourself can do to keep making the desires of Pope Francis become a reality and to prevent, maybe, this valuable Apostolic Exhortation from ultimately becoming “quickly forgotten” as Pope Francis himself suggests it will.

Why and How St. Maximilian Kolbe Became the Adoration Servants CEO

KolbePortraitAdoration Servants considers Saint Maximilian Kolbe its Chief Executive Officer.
Not only is St Max a martyr of charity via his death in Auschwitz, not only is he the great Marian apostle who founded the Militia of the Immaculata in order to help win back the world to Christ through His Immaculate Mother, but he is also a great lover of Eucharistic Adoration who as a child watched his father organize Eucharistic Adoration using hourly shift of parishioners, much like we do today.

This is the story of why and how St Max came to accept this job responsibility.

One Universal (Catholic) Church. Realize This then Love the Eucharistic Forever.

One, Catholic Church
“I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word, that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. (John 17:20-21)

How Many Christian Churches Are There?
Finding the Right Church documents 150+ denominations
Handbook of U.S. Denominations documents 200+ denominations
World Christian Encyclopedia cites 40,000+ AUTONOMOUS denominations worldwide

In 107 A.D. St Ignatius of Antioch referred to the “Catholic Church” to distinguish the Universal Christian Church from the heretical sects already popping up. (See http://www.conglomination.com for visual depictions and short descriptions on a few hundred).

Below are a some key sects existing in our age:

Choosing the better part. What would you do if Jesus walked the earth today?

MarthaMary_by_Katie800brightWhat would you do if Jesus walked the earth today?

Would you travel to be in His physical presence? Spare no expense? Jesus makes it even easier for you to be with Him. He exists in the Eucharist. Would you consider volunteering to spend one hour a week in prayer and adoration before our Lord and our God, really and truly present in the Blessed Sacrament? Or if a weekly hour is not possible, share responsibility for a weekly hour with a few others so maybe you spend one or two hours a month?

Mother Teresa said “When you look at the crucifix you see how much Jesus loved you then. When you look at the Sacred Host you see how much Jesus loves you now.” It was not enough for Jesus to humble Himself to become man and die for us. He still humbles Himself by becoming bread.

The power of prayer was so important to her that she spent at least one holy hour a day before the Blessed Sacrament. And if she was busy, she spent more time than normal.

RE: SUPREME COURT DECISIONS ON MARRIAGE: PROPOSITION 8 IS STILL THE LAW IN CALIFORNIA

Thanks Jim.
This one is confusing but from my simple point of view, what the Supreme Court did with Prop 8 was say it does not matter what the law is, it is OK for government officials to ignore it and State Courts to overturn it. So the next step which may take years is for the State Supreme Court in California to overturn the law then THAT will go to the US Supreme Court who will likely uphold whatever the State Courts decide.
