Are You Truly Happy?
Life is a never-ending search for fulfillment, happiness and peace. We look for it in our families, careers and wealth. But the truth is, fulfillment, happiness, and peace can only be found in Jesus. "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you." (John 14:27)Man is both body and soul. As the body needs food to survive, so too does the soul. God placed the soul in us. He alone can nourish it. "The Lamb on the throne will shepherd us and lead us to springs of life giving water." (Revelations 7:17)
Come aside and rest awhile in His presence. You will find the food to nourish the soul and to understand the true meaning of fulfillment, happiness and peace.
"This is my body."
"For those who do not believe, no explanation is possible. For those who believe, no explanation is necessary." Jesus is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. Saint John Chrysostom said that He is even there with us in His robe and sandals. The Church invites you to come and experience His miraculous presence during Eucharistic Adoration as a continuation of His presence in the Mass. As we are always in need of committed scheduled adorers, please prayerfully consider spending an hour with Jesus in Adoration, or call the church office for further information at 281-980-9812.
Adoration at St. Laurence Catholic Church
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is a vigil of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament exposed in a monstrance. St. Laurence parishioners unite in making a continuous adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in our Chapel of Divine Mercy. Adorers commit themselves to one or more hours a week. During exposition, the Blessed Sacrament should never be left alone. It is thus necessary that a person be scheduled for a specific hour once a week. If you feel you can make a commitment of one hour a week or be on a list of substitutes, please call the church office at 281-980-9812.
