Youth and Young Adult Ministry

Adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament “Just One Hour”

Saint Clare of Assisi - "Blessed be You, O God, for having created me"

Words of Saint Clare adoring the Most Holy Blessed Sacrament…”and completely ignoring all those who in this deceitful and turbulent world ensnare their blind lovers, you might totally love Him who gave Himself totally out of love for you, whose beauty the sun and moon ad-mire, and whose rewards, in both their preciousness and magnitude, are without end. I am speaking about the Son of the Most High, to whom the Virgin gave birth and, after whose birth, she remained a virgin.

May you cling to His most sweet Mother, who gave birth to the kind of Son whom the Heavens could not contain, and yet, she carried Him in the tiny enclo-sure of her sacred womb, and held Him on her young girl’s lap. Who would not abhor the treachery of the enemy of humanity who, by means of the pride that results from fleeting and false glories, compels that which is greater than Heaven to return to nothingness?”

“Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” (Mathew. 26:40)

Come and give one hour out of your week and live the real presence of Jesus in your life, where He really is, to Love and Adore Him.

Want to be part of our Perpetual Adoration Ministry, as an adorer or hour captain? Please contact: Guido Perez (786) 738-4715 or Gaby Gonzalez
