Jesus’ words on Eucharistic Adoration
You do not yet understand the value and the meaning of what you are doing when you abide in adoration before My Eucharistic Face. You are participating in a divine work, in a work of grace. You are before Me as an empty vessel to be filled with the power and sweetness of the Holy Spirit, that souls might drink of My Love and, drinking, see that My Love is sweeter than any earthly delight.
You are before Me as the intercessor in whose soul the Holy Spirit is sighing with ineffable groanings, and obtaining from My Father, through Me, all that the Father desires to give My priests in this world and in the next.
You are the reparator opening yourself to receive the love that so many others ignore, refuse, or treat with indifference, coldness, and disdain. By offering yourself to Me in an adoration of reparation, you console My Eucharistic Heart, which burns with love and so desires to fill souls with My tender mercy.
When you are before Me, you are the privileged friend of My Heart, keeping Me company in My loneliness and allowing Me to share with you My sorrows, My grieving over sin, and My designs for a priesthood made pure and radiant with holiness.
When you are before Me, you are with Me a victim of love, handed over and bound to remain at your place before the altar with no desires or plans other than to love, to adore, to make reparation, and to represent all priests in a prayer that simple, and confident, and life-changing.
When you are in adoration before My Eucharistic Face, you are not idle; you are working in a way far more efficacious than any human undertaking can be. This is your work and it is My work in you. This is a work that many will criticize and not understand. You are here in a divinely active collaboration with Me, who from the Sacrament of My Love, continue My priestly mediation before the Father
on behalf of poor sinners.
Never doubt of the value of your hours of adoration. It is this that I have asked you to do, and I will draw from your presence in the sanctuary a great good and a superabundance of graces for My priests.

Eucharistic Adoration – Without Me they can do Nothing
What matters is not what you are thinking or saying [when you are at adoration] for I am pleased and comforted and glorified by your simple being with Me. Be present in My presence. This is what I ask of you. So many others among My priests leave Me alone in the Sacrament of My Love. They grow cold, indifferent, and hard-hearted.
An hour spent in My presence would be enough to re-inflame their hearts, to move them to gratitude, and to love, and to open their soul to the grace of My Friendship.
I ask only that My priests return to My altars and that they seek Me in the tabernacles where I am truly present and waiting for them. So much sin can be avoided and so many sins repaired by a simple act of loving presence to My Eucharistic Heart.
I am here for My priests. I will draw them to My Heart. I will reveal to them the priceless grace of My Divine Friendship. And, from the Sacrament of My Love, I shall renew the face of the priesthood in My Church.
The shortage of priests in some places is caused, not by Me, but by the laxity that has come to prevail and, above all, by the great diminishment of prayer in the hearts and on the lips of my priests. Wheresoever my priests return to prayer, there will I cause a vast harvest of priestly vocations to spring up. I will multiply my priests just as I multiplied loaves and fishes to feed the multitude in the desert.
When priests forsake prayer, they forsake Me, and so I withdraw My blessing from their labours, and leave them to themselves, for without prayer — without Me — they can do nothing.

These writings are beautiful Geoff. I hope they will touch the heart of many priests and lay people too.
The Holy Eucharist is the Church’s greatest treasure. It is its very heart – it is the Heart of Jesus. Our beautiful God chooses to remain invisible and under the appearance of bread because He is truly humble. His love is so real and ardent that he wants to enter into us that we might be transformed. It really doesn’t get more intimate than that.
In adoration we take time to just be with the one who loves us so much.We don’t even have to say anything. He understands…
Thank you Theresa, your comment puts a strong desire in my heart to be with Jesus now, but it is late and He is locked away from me. How beautiful the time of adoration is, I always feel so blessed by it, it is as though the Lord takes all my worries and blows them away, every time I come before Him. And yes, as you said, words are not always necessary, in fact, it is often best when we just listen.
