In observance of Thursday's traditionally Eucharistic focus, here's another thought from Pope Benedict's "Sacrament of Charity" (n. 66) on Eucharistic Adoration: "The act of adoration outside Mass prolongs and intensifies all that takes place during the liturgical celebration itself. Indeed, "only in adoration can a profound and genuine reception mature. And it is precisely this personal encounter with the Lord that then strengthens the social mission contained in the Eucharist, which seeks to break down not only the walls that separate the Lord and ourselves, but also and especially the walls that separate us from one another."
