Eucharistic Adoration is a Roman Catholic devotional tradition of spending time in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us".
Join us for Eucharistic Adoration at the Emory University Catholic Center! It takes place every Friday during the fall and spring semesters!
"I heartily recommend to the Church's pastors and to the People of God the practice of eucharistic adoration, both individually and in community." - Pope Benedict XVI
“In the sacred Host, He is present, the true treasure, always waiting for us. Only by adoring this Presence do we learn how to receive Him properly.” - Pope Benedict XVI
"Adoration is the first attitude of man acknowledging that he is a creature before his Creator. It exalts the greatness of the Lord who made us and the almighty power of the Savior who sets us free from evil. Adoration is homage of the spirit to the "King of Glory," respectful silence in the presence of the "ever greater" God. Adoration of the thrice-holy and sovereign God of love blends with humility and gives assurance to our supplication." - Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2628
