Online Adoration at St Bernadette's Glendalough has been discontinued.
There are also many other online sources of Eucharistic Adoration which can be viewed at any time of the day.
What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Understood merely, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honouring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a broader sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us".
During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist ... By worshipping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.
In its fullest essence, Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out to each other, at the same time!"
The Eucharist is Jesus indeed present - Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity!
At the moment of Consecration, during the Mass, the "gifts" of bread and wine are transformed (transubstantiated) into the actual Body and Blood of Christ, at the Altar. This means that they are not only spiritually transformed but instead are actually (substantially) changed into the Body and Blood of Christ. The elements retain the appearance of bread and wine but are indeed the actual Body and Blood of Christ. This is what is meant by Real Presence: the actual, physical presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
