Apr 12, 2019 Friday Motjari meeting 

Exposition, Adoration, and Benediction.

Palm Sunday is coming Coming Apr 14th is Palm Sunday. The whole Jerusalem is passionate for Jesus. 5 days later comes Good Friday, day of suffering. Of course, up coming Sunday is the Easter, most joyous day of the year, day of resurrection.

After the last supper, Jesus, Peter, James and John had gone to Gethsemane Garden. Jesus told the disciples, “Please stay here, watch and pray.” 

Matthew 26:36-38

36 Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 

37 He took along Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to feel sorrow and distress.

 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is sorrowful even to death. Remain here and keep watch with me.”

The key sentence is “My soul is sorrowful even to death.” What did sorrow came from? Because something bad had happened. Why is Jesus so sorrowful? Because of sin. He is worried about every single person’s sin. Sin had happened way too many times. That’s why he felt sorrowful even unto death.

Isaiah 53:1-6


Who would believe what we have heard?

To whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?


He grew up like a sapling before him,

like a shoot from the parched earth;

He had no majestic bearing to catch our eye,

no beauty to draw us to him.


He was spurned and avoided by men,

a man of suffering, knowing pain,

Like one from whom you turn your face,

spurned, and we held him in no esteem.


Yet it was our pain that he bore,

our sufferings he endured.

We thought of him as stricken,

struck down by God and afflicted,


But he was pierced for our sins,

crushed for our iniquity.

He bore the punishment that makes us whole,

by his wounds we were healed.


We had all gone astray like sheep,

all following our own way;

But the LORD laid upon him

the guilt of us all.

Jesus knows all of us as a man. He can see our sins. We can offer Jesus consolation, while He was in the garden, by simply praying devotion tonight. We can make Him happy with our virtue. We owe him thanks.


Matthew 27: 46 My God, My God, why have you abandoned me? 

Father Foeckler said, “Jesus died of a broken heart. That’s what doctors said.” (Thus I googles it at home, found a lot of relating articles. )

While we were singing, Father Foeckler came to the alter, put on the humeral veil, took out the Blesses Sacrament from the Tabernacle. There were two altar boys, and lighted candles. He opened the tabernacle, knelt, removed the Blessed Sacrament, closed the tabernacle, brought the luna for the monstrance  to the altar. Then he knelt, put off the humeral veil. 


It took me for a while until I figured I was not able to take notes while singing or praying.  Therefore, below is informational excerpt from website of Diocese of Davenport, Davenport, IA 


The period of adoration usually begins with a greeting and opening prayer (given in the rite), and is variable in length of time and content. According to the norms of the Church, “there should be prayers, songs, and readings to direct the attention of the faithful to the worship of Christ the Lord” (HCWEOM §95). Preaching is allowed and the Liturgy of the Hours is strongly encouraged. The rosary may be prayed as part of the period of adoration, but the Blessed Sacrament may not be exposed only to pray the rosary (or give the Benediction).


Benediction The minister approaches the altar, genuflects, and then kneels. While a eucharistic hymn is sung (for example, Tantum ergo), the minister, still kneeling, incenses the Blessed Sacrament. Then he stands and, while facing the Blessed Sacrament, prays the closing prayer. After the prayer, he puts on the humeral veil, approaches the altar, and genuflects. Then, in silence, he makes the sign of the cross over the people with the monstrance or ciborium. The Blessed Sacrament is then reposed (the minister opens the door, places the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle, genuflects, and closes the door) during which the people may sing an acclamation (for example, the Divine Praises). If Benediction is omitted, the concluding rite includes the prayer and reposition alone.
