    Draw Closer to the Real Presence

    Draw Closer to the Real Presence<BR/>Meditations for Eucharistic Adoration is an essential resource for those wishing to draw closer to the Real Presence of Christ. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is the major topic, but Cameron's daily meditations extend naturally to participating fully in liturgy. The book's main section is a series of 30 daily meditations accompanied by prayer and reflection questions. On Day 9, Cameron addresses the "crushing sense of absence" that may befall us before the Blessed Sacrament. Quoting the Catechism of the Catholic Church, he equates "feeling nothing" to a desire for "the absent good." The session's final prayer asks that we may not be "duped by the lack of sensation in (our) prayer," but may become more receptive to Jesus' presence in the Blessed Sacrament. The reflection questions deal with feelings of isolation, signs of God's mercy, and God's greatness "in the silent, barely noticeable things" in life.<BR/><BR/>Following the thirtieth day, Cameron presents Eucharistic Devotions on the Mysteries of the Rosary, a Eucharistic Litany, and a Way of the Eucharist based on the Stations of the Cross. The rosary meditations focus on each mystery's tie to the Eucharist. Reflecting on the Annunciation, Cameron points out that as Mary awaited Christ in her womb, we wait for Christ's flesh and blood to inhabit the bread and wine. The marriage feast of Cana reminds us that only Christ can quench "the thirst that we are."<BR/><BR/>The Eucharistic Litany consists of five pages of statements from Sacramentum Caritatis (Sacrament of Charity), an apostolic exhortation by Benedict XV. Major themes are the Eucharistic celebration as the Church's supreme act of adoration, genuine and fruitful participation in the liturgy, and relationship between the Eucharist and the social mission of the Church. Specific references are made to Eucharistic adoration outside of Mass, "which prolongs and intensifies all that takes place during the liturgical celebration itself." The 12 "stations" in the Way of the Eucharist center on events from the life of Jesus that "prefigure the Sacrament of the Altar," anticipating and celebrating the institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper.
