Fr. Louis Guardiola: Eucharistic Power to Transform the World

"Jesus told the Apostles, 'Could you not spend one hour with me?' in the garden of Gethsemane during His passion. Jesus tells us today, "Could you not spend one hour with me", in this hour of the Church's passion, this hour of scandal, dissensions, divisions, abortion, international terrorism, apostasy, etc., etc. Remember fellow members of the Eucharistic Body of Christ. The Church is Christ. The Church is Jesus Christ extended into space and time.

"I firmly believe that in Eucharistic adoration, whether it be one day a week, 40 hours or Perpetual Adoration, your hour of Eucharistic power, your hour of adoration, your hour of conference with the Lord of lords, the King of Kings, really, truly and substantially present on His Eucharistic throne can and will change the world.

"I firmly believe that if every one of the billion plus Catholics in the world spent an hour one day a week before the Blessed Sacrament, every major crisis, every major scandal, abortion and acts of international terrorism would stop! Think about that!

"There is power in numbers. We have the numbers and we have the Eucharistic power. We have the power of the very enfleshed love of God Himself, who redeemed us and the world, whose power of the resurrection continues today through the Eucharist that can and will totally transform the world."
~ Fr. Louis Guardiola, C.P.M., Fathers of Mercy ~

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests, and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
