Apostolate of Eucharistic Adoration

This week we reflect on Eucharistic Adoration as part of preparation for Advent. 

Mary Lynch introduces us to the Apostolate of Eucharistic Adoration which is an Association of Adorers of the Blessed Sacrament, embracing God’s call to weekly Eucharistic Adoration, striving to be a people of prayer, vision and mission, and accepting the challenge to live the Good News of Jesus Christ. This Apostolate is organised, maintained and developed by lay people.

Martina O'Sullivan returns to the programme to share about Children's Eucharistic Adoration and Stephanie O'Donnell reflects on her involvement in the Do This in Memory programme which is the preparatory programme for First Holy Communion through the parish and the primary schools in the diocese of Limerick.

Gospel - Mark 1:1-8

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, "Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way; the voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight--" John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel's hair, and had a leather girdle around his waist, and ate locusts and wild honey. And he preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
