My opinion, I actually like Eucharistic Adoration but I am technically a Latin Rite Catholic.  To someone who has never been brought up around such a tradition I can understand how it could seem strange to them.  From my understanding Adoration started around the 11th century to counter someone in France denying the real presence.   It was a "European thing" for lack of a better phrase therefore Easterners would have not point of reference for it. 

Just my 2 cents. 

This is getting stranger and stranger.  The Eucharist was instituted for the Liturgy?  I thought it was instituted for the salvation of souls.  And I thought the Liturgy was built around the Eucharist. 

Where can we actually get ahold of a document from one of the Eastern rites that explains this?  This sounds so much like a "veiled" (no pun intended) explanation of "trans-signification" instead of transubstantiation. 

A bi-ritual priest (Maronite and Novus Ordo) tried to explain to me a few years ago that transubstantiation "no longer works"  and after a bit more discussion, he let his guard down and told me the Filioque was wrong, there was no devil, everyone is already saved and Angels don't really exist as separate beings from God.
