First things first

 Those who know your name will trust in you,
for you, LORD, have never foresaken those who seek you. ~ Psalm 9:10

" 'Pray always!' the Good Book tells us, and Jesus exhorted us to make sure that our prayer was patient, persistent, and persevering.  Eucharistic adoration accomplishes this.  It tells the world that 'we can't give what we don't have,' and that, if we do not constantly turn to God in prayer for His grace and mercy, we're finished.  The best thing people of faith can do is pray . . . I can't think of a better place to do that than before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament."

"When the first disciples asked Jesus about following Him, He did not say, 'Come do a bunch of stuff with me.'  Nope - He invited them to
'Come, stay with me!'  Eucharistic adoration is a great way to answer that invitation."
Timothy Cardinal Dolan
Archbishop of New York
