"Adoration is recognizing that Jesus is my Lord, that Jesus shows me the way to take, and that I will live
well only if I know the road that Jesus points out and follow the path he shows me.
"Therefore, adoration means saying:
'Jesus, I am yours. I will follow you in my life, I never want to lose this friendship, this communion with you." I could
also say that adoration is essentially an embrace with Jesus in which I say to him: "I am yours, and I ask you, please stay
with me always.'"
--Pope Benedict XVI
