" Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth* and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. " - John 14: 6

明恭圣体

在天主教歷史里,主耶稣曾显示祂真实地临在于圣体圣事内,天主教徒相信祝圣了的饼酒就是主耶稣的圣体、圣血、灵魂及天主性的临在,饼酒是外表的象徵。「明供圣体」的意思是将圣体公开,主要目的为公开承认基督在圣体圣事内的真实临在。为满足教友渴望更亲近耶稣,神父将圣体置于祭台上,让教友瞻仰祈祷,并接受圣体的祝福。

「如果你们常常参加弥撒圣祭、如果你们奉献你们的时间来朝拜圣体,就是爱的泉源,你们就会得到来自天主的力量,让你们能有决心及愿意奉献你们的生活去实践福音。」 (教宗本笃十六)

What is Eucharistic Adoration?

Eucharistic adoration is a practice in the Roman Catholic, Anglo-Catholic and some Lutheran traditions, in which the Blessed Sacrament is exposed and adored by the faithful.

Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ, who is believed by Catholics to be present Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, under the appearance of the consecrated host, in the form of hosts, that is, consecrated altar bread. As a devotion, Eucharistic adoration, prayer, and meditation are more than merely looking at the Blessed Host, but are believed to be a continuation of what was celebrated in the Eucharist. From a theological perspective, the adoration is a form of latria, based on the tenet of the Real Presence of Christ in the Blessed Host.

Christian meditation performed in the presence of the Eucharist outside of Mass is called Eucharistic meditation.

When the exposure and adoration of the Eucharist is constant (twenty-four hours a day), it is called Perpetual adoration.
