Blessed Pope Paul VI (1963 to 1978)
Quotes On The Importance Of Eucharistic Adoration

imagePope Paul VI reemphasized devotion and adoration of the Eucharist, in and outside of Mass, in his 1965 Encyclical "Mysterium Fedei" (Mystery of Faith-On the Doctrine and Worship of the Eucharist). Here are some of his quotes on the importance of Eucharistic Adoration in our lives:

Sept. 3, 1965 - "Mysterium Fedei" (Mystery Of Faith - On The Doctrine And Worship Of The Eucharist)" Encyclical
  • "We beseech you to foster devotion to the Eucharist, which should be the focal point and goal of all other forms of devotion."
  • "And they should not forget about paying a visit during the day to the Most Blessed Sacrament in the very special place of honor where it is reserved in churches in keeping with the liturgical laws, since this is a proof of gratitude and a pledge of love and a display of the adoration that is owed to Christ the Lord who is present there."
  • "Anyone who has a special devotion to the sacred Eucharist and who tries to repay Christ's infinite love for us with an eager and unselfish love of his own, will experience and fully understand—and this will bring great delight and benefit to his soul—just how precious is a life hidden with Christ in God and just how worthwhile it is to carry on a conversation with Christ, for there is nothing more consoling here on earth, nothing more efficacious for progress along the paths of holiness."
  • "Hence it is that devotion to the divine Eucharist exerts a great influence upon the soul in the direction of fostering a "social" love, in which we put the common good ahead of private good, take up the cause of the community, the parish, the universal Church, and extend our charity to the whole world because we know that there are members of Christ everywhere."
  • "Never stop urging your faithful, as they approach the Mystery of the Eucharist, to learn to embrace the Church's cause as their own, to pray to God without slackening, to offer themselves to God as an acceptable sacrifice for the peace and unity of the Church."

    June 15, 1978 - Speech To American Bishiops
  • "Venerable Brothers, we do not hesitate today to propose to you and all your faithful the great practice of Eucharistic Adoration."

  • "As we would expect, an outstanding spiritual growth and impetus tend to spring from Perpetual Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament."
  • "Perpetual Adoration brings heaven's choice blessings in the first place on those generous souls that keep their hour-long tryst with the Lord."
  • "Being such a powerhouse of grace, Perpetual Adoration extends its influence far beyond the individual adorers, touching their homes and families and reaching out to the parish community and beyond."
  • "You should take up as your own cause a Holy Hour of Adoration so that Peace and Unity can be brought about in the Church."
