Perpetual Adoration Commitment
Each adorer commits to being a critical link in an unbroken chain of love offered to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament whereby the parish enthrones Him King by giving Him the honor and glory due His name through perpetual Eucharistic adoration. By means of perpetual adoration the community gives great honor and glory to the Lord because, "worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory and blessing (Rev. 5:12) and to be incessantly adored for all that he has done for our salvation." (cf Rev. 5:9) Each adorer is individually called to take part in perpetual Eucharistic adoration, freely responding to the first commandment, "The Lord your God is the one to whom you must adore, him alone you must serve." (Mt 4:10) Besides, for each adorer, "the act of adoration outside of Mass prolongs and intensifies all that takes place during the liturgical celebration itself.
Thus, the chapel of perpetual adoration becomes an oasis of peace where people go to gain new strength according to the call, "Come to me all you who labor and are overburdened and I will give you rest" (Mt 11:28), and to open a temporary gap in the daily hustle and bustle of life to be in the Lord's Divine Presence. "Be still and know I am God." (Ps 46:11)
"I would like to recall the priority of prayer over action since it is on prayer that the effectiveness of action depends. The Church's mission largely depends on each person's personal relationship with the Lord Jesus and must, therefore, be nourished by prayer: "It is time to reaffirm the importance of prayer in the face of the activism and the growing secularism." (Pope Benedict XVI, Deus Caritatis Est, n, 37)
Therefore, the commitment to perpetual adoration is to grow in our personal relationship with Jesus and contribute to the Church's mission to bring Christ to the world and the world to Christ.
