Eucharist and Adoration: how to deepen understanding?


#1

I have read and heard others who have profound experiences while in adoration. Father Serpa has said that just sitting in the presence of the Eucharist cannot help but influence a person in a profound way.

Although I experience a sense of peace, I cannot honestly say that I have had such a profound experience. The sense of peace could be coming from simply relaxing and being quiet.

I know that feelings are not necessary. But how can I get a deeper experience while in adoration or in church in front of the blessed sacrament, that some seem to get?
