PERPETUAL EUCHARISTIC ADORATION A project to regenerate the parishes
It is the highest act of a human creature towards his Creator, to put his feet in an attitude of listening and subsidiary of praise, reverence and acceptance of all that comes from Him, knowing that only He and He alone has enough. Those who worship stands at the center of his attention and his heart the most high God and creator and savior of the universe. Eucharistic Adoration is a time spent in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament solemnly exposed. You can pray in different ways, but the best way is a prayer of silent meditation on the mystery of love which Jesus has loved us, so as to give his life and his blood for us. To worship is to be loved by God to learn to love others ... To worship is to enter into the experience of paradise, to be more concrete in history. "Jesus went to pray on the mountain and spent the night in prayer. When it was day he called unto him his disciples and chose twelve ". Lk 6:12-13
WHO CAN WORSHIP
Anyone who is willing to be silent in and around them, at any age, nation, language and category belongs. Who wants to find a time to give to God to be with him for his own good and for the good of all humanity that is represented in who loves. "The Father seeks worshipers who worship in spirit and in truth." Jn 4:24
HOW TO WORSHIP
He loves trying to be quiet in and around them, to allow God to communicate with our heart and our heart to communicate with God is fixed gaze towards the Eucharist, which is the living sign of love that Jesus has for us to meditate on the mystery of suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus, who gives us in his presence real and substantial. "Here I am with you always, until the end of the world." Matthew 28:20
WHERE TO WORSHIP
In a chapel specially created in a part of the church gathered and where there is a place of silence in which the Sacrament of the Eucharist is exposed, and where others have gathered to pray individually, or as a community. If the church lacks such a space, you can find a room or a room with easy access from the outside, with adjacent toilets. This will create an oasis of peace and prayer that gives us the joy of Paradise. "Come, bow down to worship, kneel before the Lord who created us." Psalm 94:6
At any time of day or night, in the deepest joy, or pain more acute. With peace in the heart, or the height of anguish. At the beginning of life, or at the end. When you have energy and when not
we can make more, in full health, or sickness. When our spirit, overflowing with love, or at the height of dryness. Before important decisions, or to thank God for taking them. When we are strong, or when we are weak. In fidelity, or pity. "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all" ... Ephesians 6:18
10 REASONS TO WORSHIP
WHY PERPETUAL ADORATION
Many say there is no need to perpetual adoration. In heaven the hosts of angels and saints, united in eternal joy to sing with one voice the holiness of God (from the preface of the liturgical prayers).Serve him day and night (from the Book of Revelation). Therefore, the Perpetual Adoration is in Heaven and then, if we enter the dimension of Eternity and experiencing right now our final destiny, our Christian communities must become genuine schools of prayer (NMI 33) and allow the faithful to live this , which is the truest dimension of existence.
In fact, why churches should be closed, perhaps that our God is resting? Are there times when no one needs help and comfort of God? Are there times when evil ceases to operate? Are there times when no one works? Our life has become increasingly relentless pace of action, both day and night, similarly, there must be room for equally constant prayer. You just need to get organized and take possession of those spaces, which otherwise are inevitably conquered by evil!
THE CHARGES FOR THE SHEPHERD
In the mind of the pastor of a community, accustomed to carry the burden of those who hardly get involved in initiatives, questions arise immediately: it will be difficult to pursue the property, ensuring the opening night and day, what happens if someone is missing ... how to combine the ' worship with the parish pastoral life of the laity ... if you get tired ... and a thousand other doubts and uncertainties. In fact, the structure is organized in such a way that the weight carried by each is minimal and everything is shared by the laity, the pastor should only encourage the worship of the Eucharist, trusting in God was amazed to see the wonders that he will be an his parishioners, growth will happen in them and immense fruits which will be born, for his priestly ministry and for God's people thirsting for spirituality.
The concern for security against theft and other incidents, has proved out of place, the experience of those who started the perpetual adoration: the worshipers are the best alarm for a living facilities closed and isolated, which instead are full of life day and night!
GETTING STARTED PERPETUAL ADORATION
It is necessary that the priest (or rector of the church) is in agreement and willing to have Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration (AEP) in his parish / church, even if you do not have to worry about organizing it, or bear them directly, because this will directly involved lay people of his community and non-acceding to the proposal. The structure is dynamic, involving the laity in his ministry, which the Council presents us with great clarity, accountability and the shape to become fully conscious of his call, puts it in a direct relationship with the Lord. It is amazing how the people of God is thirsting for Him and fully available to offer his commitment to honor and worship him.
STRUCTURE Biblical Foundations
In the book of Revelation, Chapter 4 describes the structure referred to. The four living creatures and the twenty-four elders, are the backbone of the Perpetual Adoration of Heaven, the 4 range managers Hourly and 24 coordinators now support the Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. The heads of band (RFO) has the initial task of organizing the pattern of worship, calling those who have given their support, and dividing them into four times of the day: the night (from 0 to 6), morning (6 to 12), afternoon (between 12 and 18), evening (from 18 to 24). Later, when he started the Adoration, the RFO are responsible for oversight of the six coordinators of their time slot.
Between the number of those who have joined the EPA will identify 24 volunteers as coordinators Now (CO), which have a charge of supervising the seven days of the week, time in which they worship. This means that for the first five times (five weeks), they are coordinators of the hour, remember to call each worshiper is your turn to worship. Subsequently receive the calls of those worshipers who will need a replacement and are not able to find among their acquaintances.
DISTRIBUTION OF FORMS FOR MEMBERSHIP
During the celebrations, the missionaries are faithful to the message that describes the value and importance of CEPOL and invite anyone who feels in her heart the call of the Lord's Eucharistic Adoration, to commit themselves, delivering the module, indicating the your name, surname and telephone (for organizational purposes) and the day of the week and time in which it intends to engage. Finally, those who want to help even the practical arrangements (such as CO) can do this by ticking the box at the bottom of board membership.
After Communion, at the time of Thanksgiving, we invite the faithful to return the completed forms by placing them on the altar (Christ) and experiencing a moment of true dedication to worship, as a result of spontaneous gratitude to the Lord and Savior.
Based on the completed forms, it is appropriate that the faithful will see already the first signs of their commitment, you should immediately exhibit a poster (see material enclosed) indicating the weekly schedule with the twenty-four hours, with stickers placed on their squares, second the number of worshipers: this will help others to meditate and to commit themselves.
ORGANIZATION CHART OF BAND
Each RFO, has its corresponding schema at the coordination, in every square of it shall include the full names and phones of the worshipers. Its task is to call each worshiper to confirm its membership and eventually balancing scheme. In every hour there must be at least two worshipers, when they were in greater numbers, will be moved from one hour to another and from one day to the surpluses.You should follow the procedure below:
COORDINATORS OF TIME
He then convened a meeting of the coordinators of hours, asking them to start their task: they must call their worshipers, and indicate:
The great mission of the Beloved
The CO call worshipers to specify the following.
THE place of worship
The ideal place to worship is a room small, collected, quiet, communicating with the outside, with the availability of toilets and a telephone for emergencies.
This environment is easy to be air conditioned, does not interfere with the activities of a parish pastoral and lends itself to a steady flow of worshipers, who may establish a quiet intimacy with the Lord. Near or in the chapel you have a record of the worshipers to AEP members must put their signature specifying the start and end of worship.
If the parish was too small and too modest response of the faithful, it is good to involve other parishes in the neighborhood. It is useful to make use of any local radio and TV, newsletters, circles of friends and acquaintances, word of mouth. It is important to involve all the realities in the local parish, movements, associations, communities ... it is necessary to involve religious communities and congregations, especially those with a charism of Eucharistic adoration, contemplative prayer. It is important to involve as much as possible the laity, whose own ministry stands out in a situation like this. The priest finds the great spiritual support and encouragement, is also exempt from any responsibility and commitment, if not celebrate the Eucharist, and many of the faithful confess that flow in the AEP. From time to time will encourage the faithful to worship and form of the Eucharist. The community can more easily create Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the parishes, so that the faithful attend them systematically and permanently. It would be nice that more parishes are associated and all would benefit. The question of someone: "If my parishioners in that parish are going to lose them ..." is out of place, it will return with a desire to do the same at home and participate more in the life of their communities.
