Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church


Nocturnal Adoration Society

September 20th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

I think it appropriate that we focus, for a moment, on a noble campaign present in the Diocese of Rochester. They do get some things right, after all.

This campaign is the Nocturnal Adoration Society, which humbly prays:

“Oh, Divine Jesus, lonely tonight in so many tabernacles, without visitor or worshiper, I offer thee my lowly heart: may its every beat, its every pulsation, be a prayer of love to Thee. Eucharistic Lord and King, I pay Thee my loving homage. Sacramental Jesus, beneath the veil of the Sacrament thou never sleepest; of Thy lonely vigils Thou never growest weary. Oh, loving Jesus; Oh, lonely Jesus, my heart will be a lamp, the light of which shall burn and beam for Thee alone. Watch, Sacramental Sentinel! Watch for the weary world and for the erring sinner and Thy poor lonely child. My Jesus, I bid Thee goodnight.”

The locations for this devotion are many in this diocese, but perhaps the most devoted group is that which recites the Office of the Blessed Sacrament at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament. Fitting, no? It is a noble thing to do, so, I beseech you, if you are free on the last Saturday of every month, between 8:00 PM and 9:00 PM, please stop by Blessed Sacrament Church in downtown Rochester. It is most definitely worth it.
