It made him happy to see a group of his friars around the altar in adoration. When he showed guests about Niepokalanow, at times Germans from the highest ranks of society, he either began or ended the visit in the chapel to greet, as he explained, the Master of the house. Indicating the religious adoring the most Blessed Sacrament, he would say: "There is the most important work department in the friary."

This adoration was carried out simply before the tabernacle, except on first Fridays of the month when the Blessed Sacrament was exposed in a monstrance, and only during the day, not at night. Notwithstanding the ardent desire of the saint to have perpetual adoration, he took account of the exhaustion of the friars after a hard day's work. At times, however, he would give an individual permission for nocturnal adoration.
