“Come to Me” Spend One-Hour a Week in Eucharistic Adoration
Day and night Christ our Good Shepherd, remains with us in the Eucharist. The Blessed Sacrament is Jesus, gentle and humble of Heart calling you, “Come to Me, “telling you, Do not be afraid,” promising, “I will refresh you.”
Perpetual Adoration at the Cathedral is for all parishes in the Atlanta diocese. All Catholics are invited to be part of this important devotion by praying for one-hour a week before the Blessed Sacrament.
WHERE IS THE ADORATION CHAPEL?
Enter the Cathedral and face the altar. To the left you’ll see a large statue of Mary and to her right is a slight door. Enter and immediately on your left is the door for the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.
WHAT IS “ADORATION?”
Adoration is a devotion in which the Eucharist remains exposed on the altar held in what is called a “monstrance” (a vessel). Perpetual Adoration is a devotion continuing without interruption 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in which parishioners commit to a specific day and time (one hour) every week.
Each moment that you spend in His Eucharistic Presence will increase His Divine life within you and deepen your personal relationship with Him.
When you look upon the Sacred Host, you look upon Jesus, the Son of God. “Indeed, this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks upon the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life. Him I will raise up on the last day.” (John 6:40)
