One of our Regnum Christi missionaries Anna Stevenson from Dallas, Texas shares her love for the Eucharist and how adoration has helped her to completely surrender to the call and love of Christ.
“Adoration is the space where I can engage in personal, intimate conversation with God — the Creator, the Redeemer, the Savior, the Friend, and the Desire of our hearts. As a missionary here in Rhode Island, [the summer program’s] primary goal is to be close to God and, in a sense, let God mission to us before we mission to others. He is the sole desire in all human hearts and without letting Him fill this desire [of love] within us, we cannot give love for we cannot give what we haven’t received.”
“Adoration is the way in which we know ourselves through God and how, through knowing ourselves, we can recognize our need for God. It is His call we follow so we allow ourselves to be guided by Him.”
“The time I spend with God talking, listening, singing, crying, and smiling is never wasted. He knows my moods and my desires, and He says to us ‘Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.’ (Mt 6:32-33) We are Regnum Christi Mission Corps, and we are here to follow Him. He says to us, ‘I am leading you this day, come and follow Me.'”
