Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction is a wonderfully simple and beautiful act of worship for contemplating God's presence in our midst in the Holy Eucharist. We do this through scripture reading, prayer, song and silent worship. Silence is a gift that is often so lacking in our world. To be silent before God in prayerful contemplation is a special gift. We can appreciate this silence during visits to the church where the Holy Eucharist is enshrined in the tabernacle.
We can appreciate this silence during adoration and benediction services when the Holy Eucharist is enshrined in the monstrance (the holder which displays the host for the people to contemplate) and placed upon the altar.
