Perpetual Adoration

Our state has one perpetual adoration chapel.  It just happens to be about 30 minutes from our house.  I have signed up to sit in the chapel from 5-6 AM on Thursdays.  This is good for several reasons; 1) It brings me a lot of peace, 2) It allows me to do the Liturgy of the Hours regularly, 3)  It allows me to do some spiritual reading, and 4) It structures my day and gets me out of bed early!  

I hope everyone's Lent is going well and we are all ready to celebrate the great feast of Easter.  If you are struggling with your spiritual life or commitments (lenten or otherwise), I encourage you to go spend some time with the Blessed Sacrament.

That's wonderful that you volunteered. I wish more Christians would "demand" that perpetual adoration be celebrated in every parish. How sad that your state has but only one! I would love the opportunity to sit with Christ for however long I wanted whenever I wanted!
