WARNING: The Dangers of Adoration

The Effects of Eucharistic Adoration on the Soul

We tend to think of spiritual effects of adoration in terms of it’s effect on the soul, and we see this as being 100% true. Even with low levels of eucharist exposure the spiritual effects can be so intense and even overwhelming. In some cases, with full reception on the Eucharist, we find that the exposure to the Body and Blood results in a sanctifying death of joy. This was seen in the case of Blessed Imelda Lambertini. When she was only 11 years old, a miracle occurred and the Eucharist began to levitate in front of her. The nuns saw this and notified the priest, who ran and got the patent in order to receive the floating host. After seeing this miracle, the pastor administered to little Imelda her first Holy Communion, and when she  had received the Eucharist she fell and died with love of Christ.

Now we must not be worried about such extreme cases of awesome death happening to us. However, we must be cautious and fully aware of what consequences may come from exposure to Christ in the Eucharist. In addition, we must also know why we are so inclined to go and adore Him, Jesus Christ, despite the dangers of our souls changing.

So here are the Effects and Reasons you need to go to adoration today:

  1. “In a quarter of an hour’s prayer, spent in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, you will perhaps gain more than in all the other spiritual exercises of the day.” – St. Alphonsus Ligouri

  5. “(At adoration) He grants us a share in Jesus divine life in a transforming union.” – Blessed Pope John Paul II
  6.  “There is no doubt that a flood of graces will descend upon your family and the world if more souls would become docile pupils of adoration.” – Blessed Pope John XXIII
  7. “The daily adoration or visit to the Blessed Sacrament is the practice which is the fountainhead of all devotional works.” – St. Pope Pius X

  16. “When Our Lord sees pure souls coming to visit Him in the Blessed Sacrament He smiles on them. They come with the simplicity that pleases Him so much.” – St. John Vianney
  17. “Let us love God and adore him and offer him praises by day and by night.” – St. Francis of Assisi, 1181 to 1226
  18. “What excuse shall we have, or how shall we obtain pardon, if we consider it too much to go to Jesus in the Eucharist, who descended from Heaven for our sake?” – St. John Chrysostom
