How Eucharistic Adoration has Changed Lives

03-26-2023Weekly Reflection

Several years ago, I followed the “take something up” opportunity during lent and made a weekly adoration commitment. I didn’t have much experience with adoration and had never fully understood the practice. Armed with meditation and reflection booklets composed for adoration, enriched by YouTube descriptions, and equipped with my journal, I began my commitment. My biggest challenge was “Be still and know that I am God.”

Flagstaff, AZ The second Sunday of Lent, focused on the Gospel account of Jesus transfigured on the mountaintop, found SMM's Schola Justitiae with fresh take on "garments white as snow." 20 choristers plus crew of chaperones spent the weekend in an old convent-turned-retreathouse amidst frozen blanket thicker than locals have seen in years. "It's like we entered Narnia!" quipped chorister.
