Dear Friends on the Way, I am grateful to report that our One Thing Adoration was a beautiful event. One Thing Adoration is an apostolate of Apostoli Via for the purposes of:
- Worshiping the Lord in the Eucharist
- Promotion of Eucharistic Adoration
- Promotion of the Restoration of Reverence in the Mass and Adoration
We were grateful to have a number of our Apostoli Viae Sojourner friends and Disciples helping to make the event happen. This was by far the most peaceful and prayerful event for me because the setup and coordination was so easy and simple. A number of attendees indicated that it was the most moving for them of the three we have had.
The intention of our prayer during adoration was for two things, first for the Her Choice Women’s Center in Birmingham. They serve abortion-minded women, and their banquet was underway as we worshipped the Lord. Our second intention was for the purposes stated above and particularly the restoration of reverence for the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
Both prayers were answered in that our event was very reverent and Her Choice raised a record amount of donations during their banquet!
The talks during adoration all related to what it means to worship the Lord in the Eucharist in a way fitting for a king – because the King of Kings is present!
The evening began with Eucharistic Exposition and the beautiful and simple acapella signing of a eucharistic hymn. We continued into silent adoration for twenty minutes.
We gently emerged out of the silence into a chanted psalm and antiphon and then a brief reflection. We repeated this rhythm three times and then ended with Benediction.
I will leave the rest of the description of the evening to those who attended. They will add their thoughts in the comment box below.
