                   PERPETUAL EUCHARISTIC
                                 ADORATION NEWS
When we look at our Blessed Savior in the Eucharist we see a paradox, a God that loves us so much He suffered and died on the cross so that He could remain with us.

With the eyes of faith we know that the EUCHARIST IS JESUS, with the eyes of love we know that He desires to be with us. Jesus stays with us to feed us with His body, to console us with His love, to comfort us with His gaze. Jesus asks us for love in return. He longs for our friendship, just as much as He longed for the friendship of His Apostles, the night of His agony, when He said, "Could you not watch one hour with Me?" (Mt. 26:40) He repeats that same invitation to us today.

The Adoration Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Thursday 4:00 p.m., Thursday 5:00 p.m. and Friday 5:00 p.m. For more information call 763- 788-4729 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
