The New Millennium of grace is already bringing a renewed interest of the faithful in the real presence of our Lord in the Eucharist. Many dioceses across the country report an emergence of chapels set aside for periods of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament exposed on the altar. As a result, the faithful are testifying to graces received, conversions taking place, prayer answered, reconciliation in families, increases in priestly and religious vocations and other favors.
The Real Presence Eucharistic Education and Adoration Association, founded by the late Father John Hardon, S.J., is a nationally focused apostolate promoting perpetual adoration. Their start-up manual contains the principals of eucharistic adoration according to church teaching, counsel for leadership by local pastors, pointers for parish catechesis and for setting up a chapel for adoration.
This is a movement of the Holy Spirit in the Church in these times, and I am happy to give my endorsement to this manual as a tool for getting adoration underway in parishes. May the rich graces given by Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament transform each of us, the Church and the world.

Please be aware that any major re-writing of this manual in the future will again require the review of the Archdiocesan censor.
I am also enclosing a letter of endorsement from His Eminence, Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. which may be included in the manual.
Thank you for your patience during the review process. Please accept my best wishes and gratitude for your important ministry
