Perpetual Adoration is a Eucharistic devotion whereby members of a given parish (or other entity) unite in taking hours of adoration before the Most Blessed Sacrament (in most cases, exposed), both during the day and throughout the night, seven days a week.

What greater way to worship God in the person of Jesus Christ.

True... but what is the role of the golden container... does it hold the key to the preacher's Cadillac ?

None of those images are carved. They are cast. The bible refers to worshiping idols which is not what Catholics do. Catholics do not worship the statue. The statue is an image to remind us of the person. By your own definition you will go to hell for carrying a family photo in your wallet, having one on your desk or having a drivers licensee photo. Your post is an example of someone speaking about a subject that they have no knowledge of. Do you call your father dad? The bible says call no man father yet you use the word dad which means father. It says call no man teacher yet when asked who your teacher was in 6th grade you state her name. Do you call your Physician doctor? Doctor is Latin for teacher so you again are breaking the literal interpretation of the bible. You can't literally interpret the bible because everybody will interpret it differently.

The Golden Container, is called a Monstrance. To see Jesus visibly present under the appearance of the small white host is much more conducive to intimacy than hidden away in the tabernacle. Moreover, it adds an extra responsibility on the adorers to be sure to be faithful to the hours they are scheduled, since the suggested norm for having Jesus exposed in the monstrance is that there should be at least two adorers present, and He must never be left alone. Could not these words of our Lord be applied today: "Indeed, this is the will of My heavenly Father, that everyone who looks upon the Son, and believes in Him, shall have eternal life. Him I will raise up on the last day."

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. In the many Churches that have this adoration, the Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and often the night. ChristÂ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy sacrament of the Eucharist. Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return?

Due to your irreverent off the cuff remarks, it's clear that from the start that you started this thread to ridicule, or at least draw out the so called non believers to do the degradation for you. If you had any real interest you would have made an effort to look for yourself. Painted coffee can, indeed.

Just another toxic topix poster to ignore..

Just the glamour and fanfare?? Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament has been traced back to the year 157. The earliest of Christians took literally the transformation of the Body and Blood of Christ Jesus. "He gave thanks, blessed the bread and said,'Take this and eat it is my Body.... He took the cup, blessed it and said, this is the cup of my Blood...' Later during the Protestant Reformation, and the split/rift with the Pope, many traditions and beliefs were dropped as Christians splintered into different sects. This is why the Holy Eucharist is only offered in Catholic churches, other denominations offer bread and wine, however it cannot be considered Holy as it is not consecrated. It may be glamour to you, but it happens everyday at every Catholic Mass.

No, I was born and raised in NW PA and chose to live in NC Perhaps not the best decision, but it is done)..

that's because the Apostle Paul was a marketing guy... not a religion guy. The NC Baptists and Apostolics don't have any guilded coffee cans on their altars... you must be in eastern NC

You forgot the all-important instruction "Do this in memory of Me."

Maybe it's because you support the use of the Eucharist as a political weapon wielded to elect Republicans.

Here's a question for all you born agains who "found " Jesus. Ask yourself why he was hiding from you. Most likely, because like everyone else. he finds you annoying.
