Adsum (lat. für „hier bin ich“) ist im römischen Ritus bei den Riten der Ordination oder auch bei der Jungfrauenweihe die Antwort auf den namentlichen Aufruf der Kandidaten durch den Bischof vor der versammelten Gemeinde. Aufruf und Antwort, die nach der Eröffnung des Gottesdienstes und noch vor der Weihehandlung stattfinden, erfolgen dabei sinnbildlich vor der ganzen Kirche, die die Kandidaten zur Weihe erwählt.
A candle casts light on an open book held by a young woman sitting at a desk. Her eyes are drawn to the side, as if she were distracted from her readind by a curious thought or someone nearby. She is surrounded by several people, many of whom are somewhat translucent and glowing. An Angel bends and whispers, "Adsum, I arrive. I am here. I attend you."
Adsum is a single word that has many, many meanings. First, it affirms your own strength and focus in the present. You can use it as command word whenever you find yourself distracted from what´s at hand. Say, "Adsum, I am here," and feel yourself attend to the situation or person before you.
This word also declares your arrival at your goals and all your wishes coming true. Say, "Adsum, I arrive," and take a moment to see yourself reaching your goals absolutely. Whenever you get this card, know that you´re on your way to the results you seek with the help of others and the glorious help of Spirit.
