Adoration is a prayer of loving presence. Adoration is love, like close friends who honestly share the joys and concerns of their hearts, who explore questions and seek perspective together, who long to be in each other’s presence. Jesus adored God whom he called Father, and Jesus adored his disciples whom he called friends. Gaze at God and see God already gazing at you. God adores you.
-Br. Luke Ditewig, SSJE
