eucharistic revival

Renewing the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

 

Supporting the USCCB National Eucharistic Revival


Catholic Men's Leadership Alliance (CMLA) is poised to assist the Bishops in their three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.

 

As part of our support, we have developed materials to help dioceses and parishes plan and host Eucharistic Processions over the next several years. We want to make it easy for local communities to revive their parishes and dioceses through an encounter with the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

CMLA is the home of additional videos and resources that will help your community engage in the Eucharistic Revival for years to come!

WHY WE NEED A REVIVAL

A recent Pew Study reported that only 30 percent of Catholics, fully believe in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. As the summit and source of our faith, we have an obligation to revive our devotion to the Eucharist. We have an opportunity to reignite our Church by celebrating the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist! The Eucharist is the most powerful tool that we have to transform our Church and inspire future generations of Catholics.

4 PRIMARY GOALS

1. To provide a more profound encounter with Jesus Christ in the Sunday liturgy as a point of unity among all Catholics, and through this powerful encounter, find personal healing and courage to take the Gospel to a world in need of authentic love – the love of Christ found in the Eucharist.

2. To spark personal conversions through the joyful discovery of a relationship with Christ by encountering the love of God present in Jesus in the Eucharist.

 

3. To elevate the truth and practices of our Catholic faith through the rediscovery of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist – the Source and Summit of our Church and of who we are as a people of God.

4. To form, inspire, and launch missionary disciples, filled with love of God and neighbor that comes from an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist, to the margins of the Church and the world.

What Do We Do in Adoration?

There are many things we can do during Eucharistic Adoration, but to make the time most effective there are certain things we should do. Fr. Josh puts forth some simple guidelines you can use to help you improve your relationship with God through Adoration. We ought to kneel before the Lord, but if kneeling starts to become painful and distracts us from focusing on God, making us focus on our pain instead, we should sit or lie prostrate. As Fr. Josh says, we want to be comfortable enough to remain focused on the Lord, but not so comfortable that our thoughts start to drift off. Adoration is a liturgical act that can bring our hearts closer to God when done right. Listen to his voice by reading the Bible. Then share your heart. Remember the Pirate’s Prayer: ARRR - acknowledge, relate, receive, respond. Acknowledge that you are in the presence of the Lord. Relate with the Lord through your own life. Receive the blessings he is offering to you. Then respond by making some resolution to bring God into your life as you leave Adoration. Another helpful guide for Adoration is the Rosary, especially if you incorporate lectio divina into it as you pray. Using these five steps while praying a Rosary in Adoration is time well-spent: Read the Scripture verses associated with each mystery Meditate on each mystery Pray each decade Contemplate by simply sitting in the presence of the Lord Resolve to invite God into your life in a deeper way as you leave Adoration. For more great guidelines and advice on how to make Adoration a more powerful part of you life, keep an eye out for Fr. Josh’s upcoming book, Pocket Guide to Adoration.

Make Time for Adoration

Following up on his video about what to do in Eucharistic Adoration, Fr. Josh Johnson offers some practical tools and techniques to help you make time for Adoration, by asking simply “When, where, what, who, and why?” - When? Put it on a calendar and allot a specific amount of time for a meeting with Jesus. - Where? Is there a parish nearby with an Adoration chapel? Don’t just be arbitrary about it. Pick a location. - What? What are you going to bring with you? You can bring your Bible, your Rosary, a Catholic spiritual book like Fr. Josh’s Pocket Guide to Adoration. Also, what are you going to do to avoid distractions? Maybe sitting in the back of the chapel distracts you. Maybe your cell phone distracts you. - Who? Have someone who holds you accountable to your time with Jesus, someone to check on you and ask, “Did you make it to Adoration today?” - Why? Why am I giving Jesus this time? When we do Adoration correctly, it draws us to worship God. We will be able to imitate Jesus in our walk toward eternity. By being in his presence, he will change us over time. Remember Dismus, who was transformed on his cross just by being near Jesus (Luke 23-42-43).

Corpus Christi procession 2021 | Catholics on the streets of London | Witness to the Faith | oo9

This week oo9 is taking a break from our usual bread and butter to feature the extended version of the Eucharistic Octave highlight, the Corpus Christi procession. We cannot speak highly enough of this occasion. If you didn't make it this year It's worth making the effort next. All six senses get a mega blast from Our Lord's big grace gun in the sky. It's easy certainly for me to become cynical about the world, politics, corruption, scandals (especially church ones) blah blah blah... I heard a priest say we get the leaders we deserve and that really freed me up over come my deeply cynical outlook. It put the task on me, the small guy. It's still a fight (and doing this channel is part of that fight) but the question and the problem is put firmly at our feet. Are we the domestic church living lives worthy of the leadership we would like? Here on this procession we see the faithful stepping out in peace and good cheer with Our Lord in raiment and beauty. We see our leaders kneeling on the road in humble adoration. We hear the choirs spring forth the hope in our hearts. If tedious argument changed minds, England would have been convert by now but it as the nice lady says 'grace' and what better way to petition for it than this public witness to His glory. As ever, we are a small independent channel, over worked and under paid, we think these kind of films have a future in the UK but we need your support. https://oneofnine.churchsuite.com/donate/fund/i83imzmr
