Hat tip to our good friend Argent, who got the story from Off the Record.
In fact, the Church teaches that it's a very good thing, despite progressive opinions from others I've heard from on certain message boards that the post-Conciliar Church has no place for adoration. I knew there was a good reason to know that such progressive thinking was so full of bull $&!+. Let's see what the Church says here.
The Cathechism of the Catholic Church (#1418) says this:
Because Christ himself is present in the sacrament of the altar, he is to be honored with the worship of adoration.
Pope Paul VI says in his Mysterium Fidei (#66):
To visit the Blessed Sacrament is a proof of gratitude, an expression of love, and a duty of adoration toward Christ our Lord.
Therefore, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament wins! BTW, at Holy Ghost, the Adoration Schedule is thus:
Fridays following 7:30 AM Mass, ending with Rosary and Benediction at 6:30. On First Fridays, there is also a Holy Hour at 7:00 PM. On all Fridays during Lent, there is also a talk following Benediction. Also, as of just this past May, we've started Nocturnal (overnight) Adoration on First Fridays - the Blessed Sacrament remains exposed until the end of the 9 AM Mass on Saturday Morning. Here's a link to our newly formed St. Tarcisius Adoration Society.
Here's one more statement, this time from Pope John Paul II, and I'll tip my hat to my pastor for this:
Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Jesus and ready to make reparation for the great evils of the world. Let your adoration never cease.
