Adoration
#1
I am available to go to adoration on thursday evening to an FSSP parish. I just don't know what to expect and how to prepare for it. (I come from a NO familly) 
Any hint, tips?

when i go usually the rosary or an Hour of Reparation, Angelus Press has a book. Do you have a good prayer book? Usually there are adoration prayers. Bible for Lectio Divina. Meditations.

Is it a Benediction following Mass?  My FSSP parish holds Thursday evening Mass, followed by Benediction.  

Any type of meditative prayer is a good choice for adoration.  Even sitting in silence and doing an examen is fruitful.  Scripture reading is another option.

That doesn't necessarily follow. I've attended several NO Parishes that had regular Adoration followed by Benediction. Even my little country Parish now, whilst we don't have it weekly, we do have it frequently.

I second what everyone else is saying, all good advice.  It won’t, or at least shouldn’t, be essentially different from an orthodox NO Adoration and Holy Hour.  Just take everything in if it’s your first time experiencing it.  If you can’t follow along in the books, don’t worry about it.  Remember, if you become irrecoverably lost, there’s never any shame in praying the Rosary.

On the more physical side of things, if you’re not veiling already, I do highly suggest that you wear a veil.  If you feel weird about it or don’t have the spare cash or time to get one, a nice winter hat would be just fine, too.  Sometimes there are even loaner veils available in the vestibules, and I’m sure they’ve been washed, but they are still loaner veils nonetheless.  You also might want to make it a point to wear a skirt or dress instead of dress slacks.  No one is looking at you, but it will make you feel more comfortable if you aren’t the only one wearing pants.  That being said, if you have a condition that requires you to wear pants (I’m thinking of something like a broken leg) don’t feel bad about wearing pants, either.
