Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is extended exposition of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in a Monstrance, where at least one person is present.
The Apostolate of Eucharistic Adoration (or Apostolate for Perpetual Adoration) in Canada, is the centre for and is dedicated to the promotion, establishment and maintenance of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration (PEA) and Eucharistic Adoration (EA) in Canada.
Spiritually, Jesus and Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart are the centre for PEA/EA in Canada.
It was St. Pope John Paul II’s hope and “greatest desire” to see the establishment of perpetual Eucharistic adoration in all parishes and Christian communities throughout the world. May every cardinal, bishop, pastor, clergy, religious and lay person to do all they can to fulfil this mission.
“The worship of the Eucharist outside of the Mass is of inestimable value for the life of the Church. … It is the responsibility of Pastors to encourage, also by their personal witness, the practice of Eucharistic adoration, and exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in particular, as well as prayer of adoration before Christ present under the Eucharistic species” (Ecclesia de Eucharistia, No. 25).
“Each one of us is a co-worker of Christ – we must labour hard to carry Him to the hearts where he has not yet been known and loved… But, unless we have Jesus, we cannot give him: that is why we need the Eucharist. Spend as much time as possible in front of the Blessed Sacrament and He will fill you with His strength and His power.”
St. Teresa of Calcutta
