Eucharistic adoration is an essential way of being with the Lord. (…)
The hidden treasure, the good greater than any other good,
is the Kingdom of God - it is Jesus himself, the Kingdom in person.
In the sacred Host, he is present, the true treasure, always waiting for us.
Only by adoring this presence do we learn how to receive him properly -
we learn the reality of communion,
we learn the Eucharistic celebration from the inside. (…)
Let us love being with the Lord!
There we can speak with him about everything.
We can offer him our petitions, our concerns, our troubles,
our joys, our gratitude, our disappointments, our needs and our aspirations.
Pope Benedict XVI – Vespers with religious and seminarians of Bavaria, 11 September 2006
