The Spiritual Advisor for the Oratory of the Blessed Sacrament is Rev. John Hedges, pastor of St. Stephen Parish in New Boston, Michigan.

Quotes from Fr. John Hedges (The Apostolate for the Eucharistic Life) :

"When the priest elevates the Sacred Host, he holds the entire Universe in his hands, It encompasses all peoples, unites heaven and earth, the angels of God are present and the souls in purgatory--all these Mysteries are there."

"We have to learn how to be in the presence of the divinity. We can go back to scripture, go back to the saints--we see a disposition of profound humility and adoration. Peter, James and John are models for us before the Blessed Sacrament, they fell down prostrate before the Lord..."

"The role of Our Lady in the Christian life is indispensable, because Our Lord chose her to be the Mother of His Divine Son--God made her indispensable. They belong together...even when her images and statutes were removed, pretty soon Our Lord too was taken out, displaced, obscured..."

"Priest Profile" of Fr. Hedges entitled "Kinetic Champion of Pastoral Pursuits" from the March 2-8, 2003 issue of the National Catholic Register.

'Blessed Pope John XXIII - Interior Life', a talk Fr. Hedges gave at the Holy Trinity Apostolate's 6th Annual Lenten Eucharistic Conference, held on Feb 16, 2002.
