I was reading some "success stories" on a Catholic website tonight where Catholic singles found each other online and then...well duh got married. It's Valentine's Day so you know, it's cute to see how the Lord has brought together so many people, strong in their faith, through semi-unconventional means (the computer). Anyways, one of the stories focused on an engagement that took place during Adoration.
I had heard of this before, but I've never been to one. I had to look up the definition and everything to fully understand the beauty of the story. But after reading it, I feel a deep desire...a strong need to go to Adoration. It's so hard to describe...I just feel anxious...like my heart and soul need this, they've been missing out.
I'm going to check my church's website, but when does Adoration usually occur? Is it weekly? monthly? daily? I feel like such an amateur not knowing the ins & outs of such a simple tradition.
On the website it says:
"Perpetual Adoration" is Eucharistic Adoration round the clock (that is, twenty-four hours a day). A "Holy Hour" is "Eucharistic Adoration of Reparation" which lasts for about an hour.
So there are different kinds? I wish it went into more detail about it...if anyone knows the details about these two, please fill me in! Thanks :)
Also!! Is the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament the same thing as Adoration?
