Do your responsibilities and busy life make it difficult to get away for a personal retreat? Are you looking to enter more deeply into prayer during your weekly or daily Holy Hour but travelling and taking time out for a retreat are not possible? Well, why not make a personal eucharistic retreat which fits into your weekly and daily schedule?
It is striking to see how Eucharistic Adoration has been so central in the lives of recent Popes. It seems that the Holy Spirit has been showing us through them the way that will lead to the renewal of the Church. Fr Sean reflects on how the entire Church is called to the feet of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.
Fr. Barry was at EWTN last week to speak about Eucharistic Adoration and Marian Consecration. The Network was also promoting his new book titled “That I May See”. Below are the videos of Fr. Barry’s homilies and of his appearance on EWTN Live with Fr. Mitch Pacwa. Please feel free to share the links with family and friends.
St. Manuel felt called to the priesthood at the age of 12. After his ordination in 1901, he was sent to preach at a church which he found to be unclean and abandoned. There, praying before a Tabernacle covered in dust and cobwebs, with torn altar cloths and oil dripping onto the floor from the sanctuary lamp, he decided to dedicate his life to providing for Jesus’ needs in the Tabernacle. This poor, abandoned Tabernacle taught the young priest more about the Love of Jesus than his years of theological study. It marked his entire life from that moment. He dedicated himself until his death to spreading devotion to the Eucharist, proclaiming these words which he would go on to choose for his epitaph: “Jesus is here! He is here! Do not abandon Him!” This saintly bishop will help you to receive Holy Communion more fervently and to love Jesus more deeply in Eucharistic Adoration. This book will awaken you to a new experience of Our Lord — that you may see, hear, love, and console “Love who is not loved.”
“Through a masterful use of Scripture Father Braum provides an insightful look at
the spiritual life through the lens of the encounter of Bartimaeus with Jesus in the
Gospel. This work is certain to guide the reader to freedom from the spiritual
blindness that af icts every heart and into the new sight that comes from a dynamic
encounter with Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament.” – Fr. Anthony Mary, MFVA, Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN)
