Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Take some time, ....from the busy hectic pace, ...  10 minutes, 30 minutes, or even an hour if you can, for a contemplative visit with Our Lord. 

- Reconcilation / Confession is available during the Holy Hour


“Everyone of us needs half an hour of prayer each day," remarked St. Francis de Sales, "except when we are busy—then we need an hour."  (- USCCB)


- Which, despite our often hectic pace, will help get us to -

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. What is anything in life compared to peace of soul?”
― St. Francis de Sales

"One of my favorite shows [ on EWTN], ... is the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, which I love, and when I've had a very stressful day, I'll come home -I've got it taped, and Kay and I will both listen, put it on and just sit back, relax, worship, and in that time of reflection, meditation, quietness I find myself renewed and restored."
- Rick Warren, Baptist / Evangelical pastor of Saddle-Back Church, author of "The Purpose-Driven Life" . Every Monday except Monday holidays or inclement weather)
