What do we owe to Jesus, reserved in the Blessed Sacrament?

Mission Lab

We owe gratitude, adoration, and devotion to the Real Presence of Jesus, reserved in the Blessed Sacrament.

Our devotion is expressed in visits to the tabernacle in our churches, at Benediction, and in Eucharistic processions. Benediction is a brief ceremony in which the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for the people to adore and reverence. After the period of adoration, the priest blesses the people with the consecrated Host. We should thank Jesus for all of His blessings and adore Him as our God and Savior. We should offer ourselves to His service with all the love in our hearts.

The Eucharist was the center of the early Christian community. It is still the center of all worship of God in the Church today and will be so until the end of time.
