Sensible Sites on Eucharistic Adoration?

While sleuthing a few web sites for information on Eucharistic Adoration, I found what I have to say are really extreme places, emphasizing miracles, causes for sainthood, and mostly out-there expressions of Catholicism. Fr Benedict Groeschel passed on this tidbit:

Recently I heard a distinguished theologian say that a good touchstone to discern the seriousness of someone’s commitment to renewal and reform in the Church is their attitude toward Eucharistic adoration.

The distinguished theologian has likely never surfed the web to note what the fisheaters and others have to say about adoration as, say, an exercise in gaining a reward for good behavior. Or right praise, as the case may be. Personally, I think there’s a deeper link to the willingness of a believer to commit to a personal incarnation of the Paschal Mystery, including especially a sense of personal sacrifice. But such as it is …

Anybody out there have suggestions on good web sites for Eucharistic Adoration, with the following conditions:

  • no head stuff: we don’t need another history
  • no images of some other place’s adoration: it’s better live in one’s own community
  • good, sound spiritual advice untinged with ideology or politics or treacly piety

    What exactly are you looking for? Ways to spend a holy hour, prayers and devotions having to do with the blessed sacrament, etc.? Above you said “good, sound spiritual advice,” but I might be able to find you something if you were a little more specific.

    Steve’s suggestion is perfect. A religious order dedicated to adoration. Sound adult content that points to the Eucharistic liturgy, to the spiritual life, and to the connection of prayer with living a baptismal call in the world. No miracles. No canonization causes. Nobody blowing their own horn.
