In Adoration, a repost

Coming before Christ in adoration is a powerful way of praying for our priests. It matters not if we are able to see those fruits or not; in faith, we know that prayers are powerful in bringing our intentions to God. Our Lord himself called our priests to be his representatives, why would he not hear prayers offered for them?

Red roses on the front left situated beside the altar
where the Monstrance sits, was my inspiration

Adoration is a great way of praying for our priests.
Any type of prayer will do, even a poem such as this...

In Adoration
By Easter Almuena

Wine-colored contours
In graceful stand
Elegant and poised
Yet soft and dainty

Bordered by flowerets
Looking like angels
Lime blades akin to guards
Held by vintage vase

All in pursuit
Of the Beloved’s gaze
In the quiet of a corner
While adoring

I sit in the same nook
To get a glimpse
Of the peaceful Bread
With its life beating in me

Red roses with entourage
Their beauty their prayer
And mine this poem
For Jesus in adoration
