visitationThe Visitation
of the Blessed Virgin
to her cousin Elizabeth

And she [Elizabeth] cried out with a loud voice, and said: “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.”
“And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
“And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.” (Luke 1:42-45)



Never be afraid to try something new. 

Amateurs built the ark.                        Professionals built the Titanic.

1We feel we have to accomplish something during our times of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.  We rate our experience by how ‘good’ our prayer was, how heartfelt our devotion was, or how focused we could remain.
3Yet prayer and contemplation are fundamentally God’s work, in which we are invited to participate.  We need only to give Him the opening, and He will do the rest.  By
coming to adoration, we are handing Him the keys to our hearts, allowing the rays of His love and grace to bathe our souls in the light of His Presence, as the rays of the sun bathe our bodies in light.

If we can take the time to pull away from the busyness and distractions of life and just sit at His feet, He will lead us.”
