“The adherence to the fire of love that Jesus brought to Earth embraces our entire existence and adoring God and a willingness to serve our neighbour. Worshipping God and being available to serve our neighbour. The first, adoring God means learning the prayer of adoration, which we often forget. That is why I invite everyone to discover the beauty of the prayer of adoration and to practice it often.” Pope Francis 18.08.19 Angelus, St Peter’s Square, Rome Angelus 20th Sunday of Ordinary Time Year C Luke 12: 49-53: http://www.popefrancishomilies.com/our-heart

ONLINE ADORATION & SEVEN DAY DIOCESAN ROSARY EXPOSITION CONGRESSES:
- God wants us to adore Him in person if possible, but if you are isolated at home, or unable to find a chapel that is open, Online Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration has a list of chapels broadcasting 24/7 adoration
- Diocesan Rosary Congresses are dedicated to bringing honour and glory to Our Saviour and Our Lady, and healing to our world. A Rosary Congress is the continual praying of the Rosary in Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament for seven days and nights, wrapping our nation, dioceses, communities, and families within the Heart of Mary – praying for God to unleash Divine Mercy upon us and to usher in the reign of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. While we primarily focus on establishing permanent exposition in parishes we collaborate with this organization for those who want to have seven day prayer vigils in Canada, and adapting this to an Online virtual format when it is impossible to adore in person due to pandemics or other reasons. If you would like to organize one in your diocese or help to spread this in Canada, you can contact us or contact them directly.
- Join a virtual Rosary Congress with 7 days and nights of adoration, rosary and special events Online including daily Mass, speakers, childrens’ holy hour: https://www.rosarycongressusa.org/virtual/
- Desire to be present with Jesus in person when possible
- Grow in hunger and thirst for the time when you can be physically present to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament again
- “There is no such thing as media sacraments….
- For the homebound/shut-ins, some parishes set up a webcam to live stream their Monstrance or Tabernacle that can broadcasted with permission at local seniors centres, long term care etc..
- Live adoration takes place online 24 x 7, you can make it your home page.

EUCHARISTIC BOOKS AND BOOKLETS:
Adoration books and materials for your chapel may be purchased in our shop at this link.
Often parishioners have Catholic books that contain the Church’s Imprimatur that they would like to donate to their parish chapel or library. The coordinator can note on the book “Please leave this book in the adoration chapel”. (See Adoration Chapel Guidelines above for more details).
We hope to be able and can try to provide some Catholic books (new or second hand) for your chapel.

More Resources for Faith Development
Although the websites below were checked for theological errors and doctrinal mistakes, a website being listed here below does not necessarily mean that our organization is in full agreement with all the contents on the site.
- New Advent – website with multiple resources on the Catholic Bible, the Church Fathers, the Summa Theologica of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Catholic Encyclopedia (1912), and a good collection of Church and Papal documents. Also contains Church News on the front page.
- Dogmas and Truths of the Catholic Faith – The 255 Infallibly Defined Dogmas and 102 Certain Truths of the Catholic Faith. This site contains the complete list!
- RCIA Notes and Outlines – RCIA outlines explaining many areas of the Catholic Faith in a systematic manner. This is not just for converts to Catholicism, but contains many teachings that most Catholics would do well to recall (or to learn for the first time!).
- Catholic Bible and Commentary – This website contains the traditional Douay-Rheims English Catholic translation of the Holy Bible. An interlinear with the Latin Vulgate is also contained on the site, as well as the well-known commentary by Bishop Challoner (1749-1752).
- Baltimore Catechism #4 – This is the text of the classic Baltimore Catechism with accompanying notes and explanations for teachers so that they can explain the catechism to students as they teach it. Very helpful for understanding the Catholic Faith!
- Catechism of the Council of Trent (Roman Catechism) – This Catechism was designed to help Parish Priests pass on the Faith to those whom they are teaching. It is a great Catechism for any Catholic and can really deepen one’s knowledge of the Faith.
Catechism of the Catholic Church – This is the modern universal Catechism published under the authority of Pope John Paul II. It does not use the classic question-and-answer format of all other Catechisms but instead explains the Faith in a narrative manner.
Many thanks to those who helped prepare all of the above resources for sharing and providing such a vast collection of Eucharistic materials. We are open to suggestions for improvement. You are welcome to send us links or resources.
For adoration starters, founders and adorers that have gone Home to God already, we give thanks and ask for your intercessory prayers, blessings and protection.
Our Lady of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, pray for us!
