Father Eric Nielsen joins Patrick to discuss Eucharistic Adoration

  • (4:04) Where does Eucharistic Adoration come from?
  • (11:41) Why is adoration good to have in your prayer routine?

(20:41) Break 1

  • Dean – Chapter 24 of Matthew incredible moment when Jesus disappears…. Road to Emmaus, it is such a transformative moment, and such is adoration.
  • (27:30) Luba – How do I know if it is God talking to me, or is it me saying it to myself?
  • Linda – I believe in the Real Presence. For Lent I did adoration. It was challenging. I am looking for some ideas.
  • (36:03) Bobbi – I am frequent Eucharistic adoration faithful. I get easily distracted. It is very hard for me to focus. I don’t know how to sit in silence without the distractions.

(40:38) Break 2

  • (41:49) Nicole – I’ve been going to adoration for about a year. I have 3 kids; we took 3 hours a week and I took them all. She challenges people to go to adoration. Beautiful testimony of Eucharistic miracles and the Real Presence.
  • April – I think it is valuable to children. I hosted a children adoration, and it was really good.
  • Ramona – The effect of weekly adoration in our marriage.
