Poem: “Quietly sitting in Adoration”

Quietly Sitting in Adoration
“Go to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and simply let Him Love you”
St. JohnPaul II

Kneeling or
Quietly sitting in Adoration
Yielding and passive and prayerful- there is that.

Yet, so much is astir
For with the faintest, softest “Yes”
He comes to you!

His heart bursting with love
Radiating His infinite joy
That you are there.

Don’t let your thousand failings
Come to mind.
Let Him run to you.

His thirst- His longing- His love for you-
Who else, but you!
So, this is Adoration-

Jesus adoring you!

    Yes, turn off all your screens; turn off all your phones, turn off the world so you can hear Him. Scott, great eternity-focused advice. Guy McClung
