Exposition of Our Lord and God

See Fr John Boyle's blog for a beautiful post on Exposition and Adoration. It is mind-blowing, tear-jerking, and absolutely true. My favourite part is when it is said we should be nervous and tongue-tied before Him, as we would before the President, the Queen or the Pope, but we are not. Why is that? Why when I kneel before my God physically present in the monstrance do I not feel my hands clam up but rather pray and keep silence able to look at nothing else? Will I do the same at the Parousia when I stand before the Judgement Throne? Wow! I love my faith! I love my God! Jesus, I love you!

In my parish, we are blessed to have Benediction every Saturday evening at the conclusion of the novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

I am privileged to take my turn to lead this devotion once a month and I can tell you that sometimes my voice cracks when singing the Tantum Ergo because suddenly the realization dawns that I am kneeling before the Creator. What a great privilege and a great fount of graces.
