Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Terce
This wondrous sacrament makes manifest that “greater” love which led him to “lay down his life for his friends (Sacramentum Caritatis, Benedict XVI).
Sisters spend an hour each morning adoring our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. The Eucharistic devotion of the sons and daughters of St. Norbert, the great champion of the Eucharist in the 12th century, finds expression above all in the solemn and reverential celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is the Spirit of our Order to live the Eucharistic mystery of that greater love which leads one to lay down one’s life for ones brother, in order that all men may become one Body and one Spirit in Christ. These moments of Eucharistic adoration “prepare for the celebration of the Holy Mass; [it] prepares hearts for the encounter so that it will be more fruitful” (Benedict XVI, Homily June 7, 2012).
