Why Eucharistic Adoration?

Father John Bartunek and Dan Burke talk about the importance of Eucharistic adoration.

Father John and Dan Burke discuss how this adoration is a form of prayer, of adoration, that focuses on the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, the sacrament Jesus established (see John 6).  The Eucharist is reserved in the tabernacle of a church or chapel, his tangible presence in time and space.  Father John relates the story of Martha and Mary and how Mary chose the better part, to sit in adoration at the feet of Jesus, the essence of adoration, sitting and spending time with the Lord.
