Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament – Fulton Sheen

“Could you not watch one hour with Me? “

Imagine Our Blessed Mother, the Pope, or the President inviting you to set aside one special hour each week to be with them.  You would feel like the most important person in the world!  You would be overjoyed.  You would tell all your friends about it.  You would be faithful every week in keeping your scheduled time.  Should you respond to Our Blessed Lord’s invitation with any less enthusiasm?  “The only time our Lord asked the Apostles for anything was the night when He went into His agony.  But as often in the history of the church since that time, evil was awake, but the disciples were asleep.  That is why there came out of His anguished and lonely Heart a sigh:  “Could you not watch one hour with Me?”  (Mt 26:40).  Not for an hour of activity did he plead, but for an hour of friendship.”  -Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

If you are interested in signing up for an hour of Eucharistic Adoration at St. Mary’s please contact us via email at or call Joanne Wright (978-745-6712) or Lorrie Doucette (978-578-6674).
