Adoratio Press is dedicated to the publishing of works which give honour and glory to Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. Our desire is to respond to Pope Saint John Paul II’s call to rekindle “Eucharistic Amazement”.
“I would like to rekindle this Eucharistic “amazement” by the present Encyclical Letter. . . To contemplate the face of Christ, and to contemplate it with Mary, is the “programme” which I have set before the Church at the dawn of the third millennium, summoning her to put out into the deep on the sea of history with the enthusiasm of the new evangelization. To contemplate Christ involves being able to recognize him wherever he manifests himself. . . above all in the living sacrament of his body and his blood. The Church draws her life from Christ in the Eucharist; by him she is fed and by him she is enlightened. . . I cannot let this Holy Thursday 2003 pass without halting before the “Eucharistic face” of Christ and pointing out with new force to the Church the centrality of the Eucharist. From it the Church draws her life. From this “living bread” she draws her nourishment. How could I not feel the need to urge everyone to experience it ever anew?”
