10 Reasons For Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration

1. Your Sacrifice will make the streets safe for God's People :

Those willing to make a sacrifice and keep Jesus Christ company in the middle of the night are the ones who are zealous for his glory in the sanctuary.

They are the ones that will release God's Power and make the streets safe for "His People".

When we unite ourselves with Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, we unite ourselves with all the power on earth and in heaven. When you go before Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament you release his power and his graces upon the whole world.

Those who are willing to make a sacrifice and come to Jesus Christ in the middle of the night have that faith !! They have put their faith in the greatest power on earth.

2. Your Sacrifice thanks Him for all He has done for you :

Through Christ's Sacrifice on the Cross, We have the "Gift" of the Holy Eucharist. Good Friday follows Holy Thursday because the passion and death of Jesus Christ was the "Price" that he paid so that we may have divine, immortal, everlasting life in him in the new and everlasting covenant of the Holy Eucharist.

The Holy Eucharist flows from "Our Lord's Passion". He poured out His very last drop of blood on the Cross so that he may fill you with his "Divine Love" each time that you receive him in Holy Communion.

What a wonderful opportunity we have in thanking him for this great gift !!

Your Sacrifice of spending an Hour with Jesus Christ in the middle of the night is thanking him for all the sufferings that he endured to give us the gift of the "Holy Eucharist".

3. What Sacrifice can be compared to His ??

Jesus Christ gave up his "Sacred Body" on the Cross for love of you that he may give his body to you in the Holy Eucharist, making himself one with you forever in everlasting glory.

Like wheat which is beaten, broken, and crushed before it becomes bread, Jesus Christ was willing to be beaten, broken, and crushed in "His Passion" that he may become for us the "Living Bread come down from Heaven".

He said, "The Bread I will give to you is "My Flesh" for the life of the world".

Jesus Christ continues to immolate Himself in sacrificial love for us in the Holy Eucharist. In the Eucharist, Jesus Christ is the "Immaculate Victim", the "Sacrificial Lamb".

Does the Sacrifice of spending one hour with Him in the middle of the night even begin to compare to the sacrifice that He has made and continues to make for love of us in the Blessed Sacrament ??

4. Your Sacrifice will win Graces for Many :

After the "Last Supper", Jesus Christ went to the garden to pray. As, He began to pray He started to sweat blood because He realized that the "Gift of the Holy Eucharist" that he had just given mankind on "Holy Thursday" night would be appreciated by so few and rejected by so many.

He saw down through the ages; He saw how many would walk away from "His Eucharistic Love" and not even bother to come to Mass on Sunday.

He saw in how many "Tabernacles of the World" He would be left alone and forgotten.

He saw how few would believe in "His Real Presence" and fewer still would respond to "His Appeal" to be loved day and night in the Blessed Sacrament.

He saw how most people would live their lives as if he were not here, God living among his people in the Blessed Sacrament.

Your sacrifices will gain many graces for those who are far from Jesus Christ and bring them back to him in the Blessed Sacrament.

5. Your Sacrifice consoled Jesus Christ in the garden :

When Jesus Christ was in the garden, An Angel from Heaven came to console him. This Angel consoled Jesus Christ, by showing him every "Holy Hour" that you would ever make.

Jesus Christ saw the many sacrifices you would make to get up in the middle of the night each week to keep "Him" company in the Blessed Sacrament for one hour.

These Sacrifices greatly comforted, consoled, strengthened, and encouraged him.

Jesus Christ was pleased that "His Love would be returned with "Our Love" for him in the Blessed Sacrament.

6. Your Sacrifice consoles Jesus Christ now !!

When Jesus Christ was in the garden, Scripture says that "His Heart was filled with sorrow to the point of death. He came to give Himself to Humanity through the Gift of the "Holy Eucharist" yet, so many would reject "His Eucharistic Love".

Rejection broke his heart. "He looked for one who would comfort Him but found none". He called on his apostles to comfort him, but they preferred to sleep because it was in the middle of the night. They slept through Christ's greatest crisis even after he pleaded with them "Could you not watch one hour with me ??"

You are the "Apostles of Jesus Christ" today. Today is another hour of great crisis. Today, Jesus Christ calls out to you in the middle of the night, "Could you not watch one hour with me ??"

He looks to you to comfort Him now !!

7. Be a "Prayer Warrior for Peace" :

Countless Men throughout the ages have made many sacrifices to go to war. How few men are willing to make even a small sacrifice in order to bring about peace.

There has never been a weak army that has ever won a battle against a stronger one. Evil prevails throughout the world today because those who are against God are willing to make more sacrifices than those who are for God.

There is a "Spiritual Warfare" going on today between good and evil. This is the greatest war in the history of humanity because the destiny of the Catholic Church and the world are in the balance.

There is a "Spiritual Red Alert". Who will awake from the complacency of indifference and become a "Soldier for Jesus Christ", a prayer warrior for peace ??

Who will be a "Man of God" and take up the spiritual arms of prayer and sacrifice ??

Who will answer the appeal of Jesus Christ who calls out in the middle of the night ?? Could you not watch One Hour with Me ??

8. Your Sacrifice makes up for the Ingratitude of others !!

Jesus Christ healed ten lepers. Only one came back to give him thanks for the miracle of a clean body.

Jesus Christ said "Were not all ten made whole ?? Where are the other nine ??

Every Sunday, Jesus Christ performs a far greater miracle for us. The "Gift of the Holy Eucharist" makes us immortal with divine life.

Each "Holy Communion" will leave our soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven.

In spite of the fact, that Jesus Christ asks us to give thanks for this "Great Gift" by coming back during the week and visiting him in the Blessed Sacrament, only very few do.

Your Sacrifice will make up for the ingratitude of the "Other Nine" for the many who never think of visiting Him at all.

9. Jesus Christ will call you "Blessed" :

The Holy Eucharist is the continuation of Christ's Incarnation on earth, where the same Jesus Christ born 2000 years ago in Bethlehem is truly present with us now as He was then.

Again, He comes quietly and humbly.

Again, only the humble can see with the eyes of faith the humble "Jesus Christ" hidden in the Blessed Sacrament.

This is the faith that prompts you to come out in the middle of the night to adore him. If He were visible and we could see him with our senses, everyone would run out to welcome Him even in the middle of the night.

But, He remains hidden in the Blessed Sacrament because he is calling us to faith that we may come to him in humility. Your sacrifice is the Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh that pleases Him. Your sacrifice is of more value than all the gifts in the world.

Jesus Christ will truly call you "Blessed" in more ways than one.

10. Be Like Saint John the Apostle !!

Only Saint John had the courage to follow Jesus Christ all the way to the Cross. Because of his spirit of sacrifice, he is known as "The Apostle whom Jesus Christ loved".

Be willing to make a sacrifice by keeping Jesus Christ company for 1 Hour each week in the middle of the night and you too, for all eternity will be known in Heaven as "The Apostle" whom Jesus Christ loves.

If the thought of getting up in the middle of the night seems like too much of an inconvenience to you, the secret is to think of Jesus Christ instead of yourself.

Jesus Christ longs with infinite longing  for everyone to come to him in the Blessed Sacrament. Yet, He is rejected today as he was then. Your sacrifice will help bring all humanity to Him where everyone will worship him as the Lord of Lords in the Blessed Sacrament. Jesus Christ longs with infinite longing to make all men one in His "Eucharistic Heart".

At the Last Supper, how privileged Saint John was to come close to Jesus Christ and rest his head on the Heart of Jesus Christ.

You are even more privileged than Saint John in being invited to spend an Hour with Jesus Christ in the middle of the night. Before the Blessed Sacrament, Jesus Christ calls you to come close to Him and rest your head on "His Sacred Heart".

His infinite love for you will make this sacrifice a joy, and forever you will be known in "Heaven" like Saint John, as "The Apostle whom Jesus Christ loves".
