Question from on 05-02-2007:
I was asked by a fellow parishioner the following question: Why do we have Eucaristic Adoration if we believe that God is present everywhere?
Answer by Fr. Jay Toborowsky on 05-17-2007:
Yes, God is everywhere, but look at the difference between talking to someone via telephone and being with them in person. The Eucharist is the Real Presence of Christ and God gave us this gift in order to allow us to spend time with Jesus. Prayer outside of Eucharistic adoration is not useless, but prayer with Eucharistic adoration is more grace-filled.
