Prayer of Adoration

I have come My Lord to be with You, to recall the great mystery of faith:
Your true presence in the consecrated bread of life.
I come to adore You Jesus by acts of faith, hope, and love;
to express sorrow for my sins;
to make reparation for the sins of the whole world;
to thank You for Your blessings and gifts, so many of which we take for granted
and to present to you my needs, my fears, and my desire for You to govern my life.

I pray to the Holy Spirit of light and truth to fill my heart and enkindle the fire of Your divine love.
I also ask our Blessed Mother to be with me as I visit her Divine Son.

Lord, I may not be able to find all the words to express what is really in my heart.
I may be distracted and perhaps feel a weariness.
Regardless, I kneel in silence before You,
knowing that You know my innermost thoughts and desires.

I come to renew my personal love for you and attempt to rededicate my life to You.
Please touch my heart and soul with your peace. Amen

Act of Reparation to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament

WITH THAT profound humility which the Faith itself inspires in me,
O my God and Saviour Jesus Christ, true God and true man,
I love Thee with all my heart, and I adore Thee who art hidden here,
in reparation for all the irreverences, profanations and sacrileges
which Thou receivest in the most adorable Sacrament of the Altar.

I adore Thee, O my God,
if not so much as Thou art worthy to be adored
nor so much as I am bound to do,
yet as much as I am able;
would that I could adore Thee with that perfect worship
which the Angels in heaven are enabled to offer Thee.

Mayest Thou, O my Jesus, be known, adored, loved and thanked by all men
at every moment in this most holy and divine Sacrament. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tantum Ergo
by St Thomas Aquinas
This prayer consists of the last two stanzas from the Pange Lingua, plus
a response and a prayer at the end which are a later addition (used at Benediction).

DOWN in adoration falling,
Lo! the Sacred Host we hail,
Lo! oe'r ancient forms departing
Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith for all defects supplying,
Where the feeble senses fail.

To the everlasting Father,
And the Son Who reigns on high
With the Holy Spirit proceeding
Forth from each eternally,
Be salvation, honor blessing,
Might and endless majesty.

Amen.

V. Thou hast given them bread from heaven (Alleluia).
R. Having within it all sweetness (Alleluia).

Let us pray:
O God,
who in this wonderful Sacrament left us a memorial of Thy Passion:
grant, we implore Thee, that we may so venerate
the sacred mysteries of Thy Body and Blood,
as always to be conscious of the fruit of Thy Redemption.
Thou who livest and reignest forever and ever.

R. Amen.

Akathist Hymn to Our Lord, the Most Sweet Jesus
(excerpt)

Sixth Chant

The light of Your truth shines forth throughout the entire universe
and destroys the falsehoods of the devil.
Idols, being no match for Your power, 0 Savior, fall down before You.
And we, who have received salvation, sing to You:
0 Jesus, truly You have destroyed error!
0 Jesus, Light Brighter than All Others!
0 Jesus, Our King Surpassing All in Strength!
0 Jesus, You delight in showing mercy!
0 Jesus, Bread of Life, satisfy my hunger!
0 Jesus, Fount of Intelligence, quench my thirst for truth!
0 Jesus, Garment of Joy, cover me who am corruptible!
0 Jesus, Joyous Shelter, protect me who am unworthy!
0 Jesus, Who grants every prayer, grant me tears for my sins!
0 Jesus, Possession of All Who Seek, possess my soul!
0 Jesus, Contemplation of the Wise, open my Mind to penance!
0 Jesus, Who paid the price for my sinfulness, cleanse me of sin!
0 Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me!

 

Kontakion

Fulfilling the precious mystery revealed from the beginning of time,
You were led as a sheep to the slaughter, and, as an innocent lamb,
You were silent before the shearers.
As God, You rose from the dead, and with glory,
You ascended into heaven,
so that we, exalted, might sing to Him: Alleluia!

Thanksgiving Prayer
by St. Basil the Great

O Master, Christ our God, King of Ages, Maker of all things;
I thank You for all the favors You have granted me,
and for having given me Your pure and life-giving Mysteries.

I pray You, O gracious God who loves Mankind,
keep me under Your protection and under the shadow of Your wings;
grant that, until my last breath, I may worthily receive Your Holy Mysteries
with a clear conscience for the remission of my sins and for life everlasting.

For You are the Bread of Life,
the Fountain of Holiness,
and the Provider of Graces,
and we glorify You together with Your Father, and Your Holy Spirit,
now and ever and forever. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before Receiving Holy Communion

I believe and confess, Lord, that You are truly the Christ,
the Son of the living God,
who came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the first.
I also believe that this is truly Your pure Body
and that this is truly Your precious Blood.
Therefore, I pray to You, have mercy upon me,
and forgive my transgressions,
voluntary and involuntary,
in word and deed,
known and unknown.
And make me worthy without condemnation
to partake of Your pure Mysteries
for the forgiveness of sins and for life eternal. Amen.

How shall I, who am unworthy, enter into the splendor of Your saints?
If I dare to enter into the bridal chamber, my clothing will accuse me,
since it is not a wedding garment;
and being bound up, I shall be cast out by the angels.
In Your love, Lord, cleanse my soul and save me.

Loving Master, Lord Jesus Christ, my God,
let not these holy Gifts be to my condemnation because of my unworthiness,
but for the cleansing and sanctification of soul and body
and the pledge of the future life and kingdom.
It is good for me to cling to God
and to place in Him the hope of my salvation.

Receive me today, Son of God, as a partaker of Your mystical Supper.
I will not reveal Your mystery to Your adversaries.
Nor will I give You a kiss as did Judas.
But as the thief I confess to You: Lord, remember me in Your kingdom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Act of Faith and Adoration
(After communion)

My Lord, Jesus Christ,

I adore Thee profoundly as my God and my Lord.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Act of Faith

MY GOD, I believe in Thee,
and all Thy Church doth teach,

Act of Faith

I believe in one God.
I believe that God rewards the good
and punishes the wicked.
I believe that in God
there are three Divine Persons -
God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
I believe that God the Son became Man,
without ceasing to be God.

the Redeemer of the human race,
that He died on the Cross
for the salvation of all men,
that He died also for me.

everything that He has taught and revealed.

O my God, give me strong faith.
O my God, help me to believe with lively faith.

O my God, who are all-good and all-merciful,
I sincerely hope to be saved.
Help me to do all that necessary for my salvation.

I have committed many sins in my life,
but now I turn away from them, and hate them.
I am sorry, truly sorry for all of them,
because I have offended You, my God,
who are all-good, all-perfect, all-holy,
all-merciful and kind,
and who died on the Cross for me.

I love You, O my God, with all my heart.
Please forgive me for having offended You.

I promise, O God, that with Your help
I will never offend You again.

My God, have mercy on me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Act of Faith
(After communion)

Lord Jesus, I firmly believe
You are present within me as God and Man,
to enrich my soul with graces
and to fill my heart
with happiness of the blessed.

I believe that You are Christ,
the Son of the living God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Act of Faith in the Real Presence

My divine Lord I firmly believe
that I am going to in Holy Communion
You Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.
I believe this because you have said it,
and I am ready to maintain this truth
at the peril of my life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Post-Communion Prayer

Our Mouths are full of gladness and joy,
for we have been partakers of Thine immortal Mysteries, O Lord.
Thou hast revealed in Thy goodness
to the children of Thy holy Church
those things which the eye has not seen
nor the ear heard
nor which the heart has known;
those things Thou hast laid up for them that love Thy holy Name.

Wherefore do we give glory, honor and worship unto Thee
Father, Son and Holy Spirit, One God,
in both worlds unto the ages of ages.

Amen. May this offering, O Lord, be pleasing to Thy will.
Let the angels rejoice with us and bring us unto Thee.

Prayer for Faith in the Real Presence
from the Father Stedman Jesus, Mary and Joseph Novena Manual

WE COME to Thee, dear Lord, like the Apostles,
saying: "INCREASE OUR FAITH."

Give us a VIVID FAITH,
that Thou art really present in the Blessed Sacrament,
a STRONG and ACTIVE FAITH
that we may live by it.

Give us the FAITH of Thy beloved disciple, John,
to recognize Thee and say:
"It is the Lord."
"My God and my All!"

Give us the FAITH of Peter
to fall on our knees and confess:
"Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God."

Give us the FAITH of Mary Magdalen
to fall at Thy Feet, crying,
"Rabboni, Master!"

Give us the FAITH of the father of the sick boy,
that FAITH which Thou didst reward with a miracle
when he cried out in tears, "I do believe, Lord! help my unbelief."

Give us the FAITH of all Thy Saints
to whom the Blessed Sacrament was Heaven begun on earth.

In every Communion and at every visit,
increase our FAITH, our LOVE, our HUMILITY, our REVERENCE,
and all good things will come to us.
Dearest Lord, INCREASE OUR FAITH.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament
by St. Alphonsus Liguori

My Lord Jesus Christ, Who, through the love which You bear toward men,
does remain with them day and night in this Sacrament, full of mercy and love,
awaiting, inviting and receiving all who come to visit You,
I believe that You are present in the Sacrament of the Altar.

From the abyss of my nothingness, I adore You. I thank You
for all the graces which You have bestowed upon me,
particularly for having given me Yourself in this Sacrament,
for having given my Your most holy Mother Mary for my advocate,
and for having called me to visit You in this church.

I pay my homage to Your most loving Heart for these three ends:
first in thanksgiving for this great Gift;
second to make amends to You for all the outrages
which You do receive in this Sacrament from all Your enemies;
third I intend by this visit to adore You in all the places
on earth in which You are present in this Sacrament and
in which You are the least honored and the most abandoned.

My Jesus, I love You with my whole heart.
I am sorry for having offended Your infinite goodness so many times.
I purpose, with the help of Your grace, never more to offend You;
and, at this moment, miserable as I am, I consecrate my whole being to You.

I give You my entire will, all my affections and desires and all that I have.
From this day forward, do what You will with me and with everything that belongs to me.

I ask and desire only Your holy love,
the gift of final perseverance
and the perfect fulfillment of Your will.
I commend to You the souls in Purgatory, particularly those who were
most devoted to the Most Blessed Sacrament and to the Blessed Virgin Mary;
and I also commend to You all poor sinners.

Finally, my dear Saviour, I unite all my affections with the affections
of Your most loving Heart; and thus united, I offer them to Your Eternal Father,
and I entreat Him, in Your Name and for Your sake, to accept and answer them. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anima Christi
by St. Ignatius Loyola

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.

Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Thy wounds hide me.
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee.

From the malignant enemy, defend me.
In the hour of my death, call me.
And bid me come to Thee.
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee.
Forever and ever. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Post-Communion Prayer
by Saint Bonaventure

Pierce, O most sweet Lord Jesus, my inmost soul
with the most joyous and healthful wound of Thy love,
with true, serene, and most holy apostolic charity,
that my soul may ever languish and melt with love and longing for Thee,
that it may yearn for Thee and faint for Thy courts,
and long to be dissolved and to be with Thee.

Grant that my soul may hunger after Thee,
the bread of angels, the refreshment of holy souls,
our daily and supersubstantial bread,
having all sweetness and savour and
every delight of taste.

Let my heart ever hunger after and feed upon Thee,
upon whom the angels desire to look,
and may my inmost soul be filled
with the sweetness of Thy savour.

May it ever thirst after Thee,
the fountain of life,
the fountain of wisdom and knowledge,
the fountain of eternal light,
the torrent of pleasure,
the richness of the house of God.

May it ever compass Thee,
seek Thee, find Thee,
run to Thee, attain to Thee,
mediate upon Thee, speak to Thee,
and do all things to the praise and glory of Thy name,
with humility and discretion,
with love and delight,
with ease and affection,
and with perseverance unto the end.

Mayest Thou alone be ever my hope,
my entire assurance, my riches,
my delight, my pleasure, my joy,
my rest and tranquillity,
my food, my refreshment,
my refuge, my help, my wisdom,
my portion, my possession and my treasure,
in whom may my mind and my heart be
fixed and firm and rooted immovably
henceforth and forever. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Akita Prayer

A Hymn for Ascension Day
by Saint Ephrem the Syrian

On this day the new bread of the spirit
has gone up to heaven.
The mysteries were revealed in Your Body
which has gone up as an offering.
Blessed be Your bread, O Lord!

The Lamb has come to us from the house of David;
the priest, from the stock of Abraham,
has become for our sakes the Lamb of God,
the new minister of sacrifice.

His Body is the victim, His Blood is our drink.
Blessed be the new sacrifice!

He has descended from heaven like the light;
is born of Mary as a divine shoot;
as a fruit He has fallen from the cross;
and is offered up to heaven as the first fruits.
Blessed be His will!

You are the offering of heaven and of earth,
immolated and at the same time adored.
You came to be a victim,
You ascended as a singular offering,
You ascended, Lord,
bearing with You the offering of Your sacrifice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Act of Hope

I hope for this from Thy goodness and mercy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Act of Hope

MY GOD, I hope in Thee for grace and for glory,

Act of Hope
Saint Augustine of Hippo

For Your mercies' sake, O Lord my God,
tell me what You are to me.
Say to my soul: "I am your salvation."
So speak that I may hear, O Lord;
my heart is listening;
open it that it may hear You,
and say to my soul: "I am your salvation."

After hearing this word,
may I come in haste to take hold of You.
Hide not your face from me.
Let me see your face even if I die,
lest I die with longing to see it.

The house of my soul is too small to receive You;
let it be enlarged by You.
It is all in ruins;
do You repair it.
There are things in it
- I confess and I know -
that must offend Your sight.
But who shall cleanse it?
Or to what others besides You shall I cry out?

From my secret sins cleanse me, O Lord,
and from those of others spare your servant.
Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Act of Hope

O my God,
relying on Your almighty power
and infinite mercy and promises,
I hope to obtain pardon of my sins,
the help of Your grace
and life everlasting,
through the merits of Jesus Christ,
my Lord and Redeemer.
Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Prayer of Preparation for Holy Communion
by St. Basil the Great

O Lord, I know that if I partake unworthily
of Your most pure Body and precious Blood,
I will be guilty.
I will be eating and drinking my own condemnation
by not giving proper reverence to Your Body and Blood.
But, trusting in Your mercy, I dare come to You,
for You have said:
"He who eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood abides in Me and I in him."
Be merciful to me, a sinner, 0 Lord,
and do not reject me,
but deal with me according to Your mercy.
grant that this Holy Mystery be for the healing of my soul and body,
for the enlightenment of my mind,
and for the protection of my life.
Let it be for the amendment of my conduct,
for perseverance, for the increase of virtue,
and for protection in the communion of Your Holy Spirit.
Give me Your Body and Blood, 0 Lord,
as a provision for the journey to eternal life,
and for an acceptable answer at Your judgment seat.
Do not let it be for my judgment or condemnation.
Amen.

The Jesus Prayer
by John Gabriel Perboyre

O my Divine Savior, transform me into yourself.
May my hands be the hands of Jesus.
May my tongue be the tongue of Jesus,
Grant that every faculty of my body may serve only to glorify you.
Above all, transform my soul and all its powers,
that my memory, my will and my affections
may be the memory, the will and the affections of Jesus.
I pray you to destroy in me all that is not you.
Grant that I may live but in you and for you,
and that I may truly say with St. Paul:
"I live, now not I, but Christ lives in me" (Gal 2:20).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Agnus Dei

Corpus Christi Sequence
by St. Thomas Aquinas

Zion, to Thy Savior sing,
To Thy Shepherd and Thy King!
Let the air with praises ring!

All thou canst, proclaim with mirth,
For far higher is His worth
Than the glory words may wing.

Lo! before our eyes and living
Is the Sacred Bread life-giving,
Theme of canticle and hymn.

We profess this Bread from heaven
To the Twelve by Christ was given,
For our faith rests firm in Him.

Let us form a joyful chorus,
May our lauds ascend sonorous,
Bursting from each loving breast.

For we solemnly record
How the Table of the Lord
With the Lamb’s own gift was blest.

On this altar of the King
This new Paschal Offering
Brings an end to ancient rite.

Shadows flee that truth may stay,
Oldness to the new gives way,
And night’s darkness to the light.

What at Supper Christ completed
He ordained to be repeated,
In His memory divine.

Wherefore now, with adoration,
We, the Host of our salvation,
Consecrate from bread and wine.

Words a nature’s course derange,
That in Flesh the bread may change
And the wine in Christ’s own Blood.

Does it pass thy comprehending?
Faith, the law of light transcending
Leaps to things not understood.

Here beneath these signs are hidden
Priceless things, to sense forbidden;
Signs, not things, are all we see.

Flesh from bread, and Blood from wine,
Yet is Christ in either sign,
All entire confessed to be.

And whoever of Him partakes,
Severs not, nor rends, nor breaks:
All entire, their Lord receive.

Whether one or thousand eat,
All receive the self-same meat,
Nor do less for others leave.

Both the wicked and the good
Eat of this celestial Food:
But with ends how opposite!

With this most substantial Bread,
Unto life or death they’re fed,
In a difference infinite.

Nor a single doubt retain,
When they break the Host in twain,
But that in each part remain
What was in the whole before;
For the outward sign alone
May some change have undergone,
While the Signified stays one,
And the same forevermore.

Hail! Thou Bread of Angels, broken,
For us pilgrims food, and token
Of the promise by Christ spoken,
Children’s meat, to dogs denied!

Shown in Isaac’s dedication,
In the Manna’s preparation,
In the Paschal immolation,
In old types pre-signified.

Jesus, Shepherd mild and meek,
Shield the poor, support the weak,
Pity all who pardon seek,
And who place all trust in Thee,
Fill them with Thy Charity!

Source of all we have or know,
Feed and lead us here below.

Grant that with Thy Saints above,
Sitting at the feast of love
We may see Thee face to face.

Amen. Alleluia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer To Jesus In The Blessed Sacrament

BEHOLD, O my most loving Jesus,
how far Thine exceeding love hath reached!
Of Thine own Flesh and Most Precious Blood
Thou hast prepared for me a divine table
in order to give Thyself wholly to me.
What hath impelled Thee to such transports of love?
Nothing else surely save Thy most loving Heart.

O adorable Heart of my Jesus,
burning furnace of divine charity,
receive my heart within Thy most sacred wound;
to the end that in this school of love,
I may learn to make a return of love to the God
who hath given me such wondrous proofs of His love. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanksgiving After Holy Communion
by Saint Thomas Aquinas

I thank You, O holy Lord,
almighty Father, eternal God,
who have deigned, not through any merits of mine,
but out of the condescension of Your goodness,
to satisfy me a sinner, Your unworthy servant,
with the precious Body and Blood of Your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ.

I pray that this Holy Communion
be not a condemnation to punishment for me,
but a saving plea to forgiveness.

May it be to me the armor of faith
and the shield of a good will.
May it be the emptying out of my vices
and the extinction of all lustful desires;
and increase of charity and patience,
of humility and obedience, and all virtues;
a strong defense against the snares
of all my enemies, visible and invisible;
the perfect quieting of all my evil impulses
of flesh and spirit,
binding me firmly to You, the one true God;
and a happy ending of my life.

I pray too that You will deign to bring me, a sinner,
to that ineffable banquet where You with Your Son and the Holy Spirit,
are to your Saints true light, fulfillment of desires, eternal joy,
unalloyed gladness, and perfect bliss.

Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer To Jesus In The Blessed Sacrament

O my God,
I firmly believe
that Thou art really and corporally present
in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar.
I adore Thee here present
from the very depths of my heart,
and I worship Thy sacred presence
with all possible humility.

O my soul,
what joy to have Jesus Christ
always with us,
and to be able to speak to Him
heart to heart
with all confidence.

Grant, O Lord, that I,
having adored Thy divine Majesty
here on earth in this wonderful Sacrament,
may be able to adore It eternally in heaven.
Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most Sacred, Most Loving Heart of Jesus
by John Cardinal Newman

0 most Sacred, most loving
Heart of Jesus,
Thou art concealed in the Holy Eucharist,
and Thou beatest for us still.
Now as then Thou sayest,
Desiderio desideravi -- "With desire I have desired."
I worship Thee then with all my best love and awe,
with my fervent affection,
with my most subdued, most resolved will.
0 my God, when Thou dost condescend
to suffer me to receive Thee,
to eat and drink Thee,
and Thou for a while takest up Thy abode within me,
0 make my heart beat with Thy Heart.
Purify it of all that is earthly,
all that is proud and sensual,
all that is hard and cruel,
of all perversity, of all disorder, of all deadness.

So fill it with Thee,
that neither the events of the day
nor the circumstances of the time
may have power to ruffle it;
but that in Thy love and Thy fear
it may have peace.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanksgiving Following Holy Communion
from The Divine Liturgy Of St. John Chrysostom

I thank You, Lord my God,
that You have not rejected me, a sinner,
but have made me worthy to partake of Your holy mysteries.

I thank You that You have permitted me,
although I am unworthy,
to receive Your pure and heavenly gifts.

O loving Master,
who died and rose for our sake,
and granted to us these awesome and life-giving mysteries
for the well being and sanctification of our souls and bodies,
let these gifts be for healing of my own soul and body,
the averting of every evil,
the illumination of the eyes of my heart,
the peace of my spiritual powers,
a faith unashamed,
a love unfeigned,
the fulfilling of wisdom,
the observing of Your commandments,
the receiving of Your divine grace,
and the inheritance of Your kingdom.

Preserved by them in Your holiness,
may I always be mindful of Your grace
and no longer live for myself,
but for You, our Master and Benefactor.

May I pass from this life in the hope of eternal life,
and attain to the everlasting rest,
where the voices of Your Saints who feast are unceasing,
and their joy,
beholding the ineffable beauty of Your countenance,
is unending.

For You, Christ our God,
are the true joy and gladness of those who love You,
and all creation praises You forever. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer to the Lord Jesus Crucified
from the Akathist Hymn to the Divine Passion of Christ

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God,
Creator of Heaven and earth, Saviour of the world,

Behold, I who am unworthy and of all men most sinful,
humbly bow the knee of my heart before
the glory of Thy majesty and praise Thy Cross and Passion,
and offer thanksgiving to Thee,
the King and God of all,
that Thou wast pleased to bear as man all labours and hardships,
all temptations and tortures,
that Thou mightest be our Fellow-sufferer and Helper,
and a Saviour to all of us in all our sorrows, needs, and sufferings.

I know, O all-powerful Lord, that all these things were not necessary for Thee,
but for us men and for our salvation
Thou didst endure Thy Cross and Passion
that Thou mightest redeem us from all cruel bondage to the enemy.

What, then, shall I give in return to Thee, O Lover of mankind,
for all that Thou hast suffered for me, a sinner?
I cannot say, for soul and body and all blessings come from Thee,
and all that I have is Thine, and I am Thine.
Yet I know that love is repaid only by love.
Teach me, then, to love and praise Thee.

Trusting solely in Thine infinite compassion and mercy, O Lord,
I praise Thine unspeakable patience,
I magnify Thine unutterable exhaustion,
I glorify Thy boundless mercy,
I adore Thy purest Passion,
and most lovingly kissing Thy wounds, I cry: Have mercy on me a sinner,
and cause that Thy holy Cross may not be fruitless in me,
that I may participate here with faith in Thy sufferings
and be vouchsafed to behold also the glory of Thy Kingdom in Heaven.

Amen.

Adoro Te Devote
St. Thomas Aquinas

Hidden God, devoutly I adore Thee,
Truly present underneath these veils:
All my heart subdues itself before Thee,
Since it all before Thee faints and fails.

Not to sight, or taste, or touch be credit,
Hearing only do we trust secure;
I believe, for God the Son has said it-
Word of truth that ever shall endure.

On the cross was veiled Thy Godhead's splendor,
Here Thy manhood lies hidden too;
Unto both alike my faith I render,
And, as sued the contrite thief, I sue.

Though I look not on Thy wounds with Thomas,
Thee, my Lord, and Thee, my God, I call:
Make me more and more believe Thy promise,
Hope in Thee, and love Thee over all.

O memorial of my Savior dying,
Living Bread, that gives life to man;
Make my soul, its life from Thee supplying,
Taste Thy sweetness, as on earth it can.

Deign, O Jesus, Pelican of heaven,
Me, a sinner, in Thy Blood to lave,
To a single drop of which is given
All the world from all its sin to save.

Contemplating, Lord, Thy hidden presence,
Grant me what I thirst for and implore,
In the revelation of Thy essence
To behold Thy glory evermore.

Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer To Jesus In The Blessed Sacrament
by Saint Alphonsus Mary de Liguori

O MY LORD Jesus Christ,
who for the love Thou bearest mankind,
dost remain night and day in this Sacrament,
all full of tenderness and love,
expecting, inviting and receiving all those who come to visit Thee;
I believe that Thou art present in the Sacrament of the altar;
I adore Thee from the depths of my own nothingness
and thank Thee for all the favours Thou hast bestowed upon me;
and especially for having given me Thyself in this Sacrament,
and Thy most holy Mother Mary as my advocate;
and for having called me to visit Thee in this church.

I pay my homage this day to Thy most loving Heart
and this I intend to do for three intentions:
first, in thanksgiving for this great gift;
secondly, in reparation for all the insults Thou hast received from Thine enemies in this Sacrament;
thirdly, by this visit I intend to adore Thee in all places upon the earth,
where Thou art least adored and most neglected in Thy Sacrament.

My Jesus, I love Thee with my whole heart.
I repent of having in the past so many times displeased Thine infinite goodness.
I purpose with the help of Thy grace
never more to offend Thee in the future;
and at this moment, wretched as I am, I consecrate myself wholly to Thee.
I give to Thee and utterly renounce my entire will,
all my affections, all my desires, and all that I possess.

From this day forth do with me and with all that is mine whatever is pleasing in Thy sight.
I ask and desire only Thy holy love,
final perseverance and the perfect fulfilment of Thy will.
I commend to Thee the souls in purgatory,
especially those who were most devoted to this Blessed Sacrament and to Blessed Mary;
I commend to Thee in like manner all poor sinners.

Finally, my dear Saviour, I unite all my affections with those of Thy most loving Heart,
and thus united I offer them to Thine eternal Father,
and I pray Him in Thy name graciously to accept and answer them for love of Thee.

Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar
Manual of Prayers, Third Plenary Council of Baltimore

HOW boundless, O Jesus, is Thy Love!
Thou hast prepared for me,
of Thy most precious Body and Blood,
a divine Banquet,
wherein Thou dost give Thyself to me without reserve.
What hath urged Thee to this excess of love?
Nothing but Thine own most Loving Heart.
O adorable Heart of Jesus,
Furnace of divine Love,
receive my soul into the wounds of Thy most sacred Passion,
that in this school of charity
I may learn to make a return of love
to that God who hath given me such wonderful proofs of His Love.
Amen.

JESUS, meek and humble of heart,
Make my heart like unto Thine!

O sweetest Heart of Jesus, I implore
That I may ever love Thee more and more!

O Heart of Jesus,
burning with love of me,
inflame my heart with the love of Thee!

O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
mayest Thou be known, loved and adored throughout the whole world!

O Heart of my dear Redeemer,
may the love of Thy friends supply all the injuries and neglects which Thou sustainest!

 

 

 

 

 

 

O Sacrament of Love
by St. Thérèse of Lisieux

Come dwell in my heart. Amen.

Prayer before Holy Communion
Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom

0 Lord, I believe and profess that You are truly Christ, the Son of the living God,
who came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the first.

Accept me as a partaker of your mystical supper, 0 Son of God;
for I will not reveal your mystery to your enemies,
nor will I give You a kiss as did Judas,
but like the thief I confess to You:

Remember me, 0 Lord, when You shall come into your kingdom.
Remember me, 0 Master, when You shall come into your kingdom.
Remember me, 0 Holy One, when You shall come into your kingdom.

May the partaking of your holy mysteries, 0 Lord,
be not for my judgment or condemnation,
but for the healing of soul and body.

0 Lord, I also believe and profess that this which I am about to receive,
is truly your most precious body and your life-giving blood,
which, I pray, make me worthy to receive for the remission of all my sins
and for life ever-lasting. Amen.

O God, be merciful to me a sinner.
O God, cleanse my sins and have mercy on me.
O Lord, forgive me for I have sinned without number.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament

O Virgin Mary,
Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament,
glory of the Christian people;
joy of the universal Church;
salvation of the world;
pray for us,
and arouse among the faithful everywhere
such devotion to the most Holy Eucharist,
as will make them worthy to receive it every day.

Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
gracious companion of our exile,
I adore Thee.

Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
lonely Heart,
humiliated Heart,
abandoned Heart,
forgotten Heart,
despised Heart,
outraged Heart,
Heart ignored by men,
Heart which loves
our own hearts;
Heart pleading for our love,
Heart so patient
in waiting for us,
Heart so eager
to listen to our prayers,
Heart so anxious
for our requests,
Heart, unending
source of new graces,
Heart so silent,
yet desiring to speak to souls,
Heart, welcome refuge
of the hidden life,
Heart, teacher of the
secrets of union with God,
Heart of Him Who sleeps
but watches always,
Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
have mercy on us.

Jesus Victim,
I desire to comfort Thee;
I unite myself to Thee;
I offer myself in union with Thee.

I regard myself as nothing
in Thy Presence.
I long to forget myself
in order to think
only of Thee,
to be despised
and forgotten
for love of Thee.
I have no desire to be
understood or loved
by anyone but Thee.

I will keep silent
in order to listen to Thee,
and I will abandon myself
in order to lose myself in Thee.

Grant that I may thus satisfy
Thy thirst for my salvation,
Thy burning thirst for my holiness,
and that once purified
I may give Thee
a sincere and pure love.
I am anxious
not to tire Thee
further with waiting:
take me,
I hand myself over to Thee.
I give Thee all my actions,
my mind to be enlightened,
my heart to be directed,
my will to be stabilized,
my wretchedness to be relieved,
my soul and body to be
nourished by Thee.

Eucharistic Heart of my Saviour,
Whose Blood is
the life of my soul,
may I myself cease to live
and Thou
alone live in me. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Act of Thanksgiving

O Divine Trinity,
one God,
most worthy to be loved,
I thank Thee from the very depth of my heart,
because Thou hast given me Jesus;
I thank Thee because Thou hast left me Jesus in the Sacrament;
I thank Thee for having caused me to receive Him;
I thank Thee, my Jesus, that Thou hast deigned to visit me.
O God, what return can I make for so much love!
How can I thank Thee enough, O most holy Virgin,
O Angels, O Saints of Heaven, O all enamoured Souls,
help me to thank our God,
to thank and thank Him again and again, for this infinite kindness.
But, O God, how little even is all this!
The thanksgiving of all Paradise
cannot attain to be thanks sufficient to an infinite God,
or recommend Him for His benefits.
What, then, shall I do?
I know not, except, O my most holy Jesus,
to offer up Thine Own love itself in thanks for Thine infinite love.
May Thine infinite compassion,
Thy kindness,
and all the abyss of Thine infinite attributes,
render to Thee that honor and that thank-offering which Thou deservest.
O Most Holy Trinity, one God,
I thank Thee by the hands of Jesus;
and do Thou, O Triune God,
thank Jesus for me!
And now let my heart remain full,
and let Thy Majesty accept and be satisfied with these infinite thanks.
O my Blessing, to Thee alone be praise, glory, and honor
from all creatures, forever and forever. Amen.

What art thou doing, my soul?
Dost thou know that now thou art a living temple
in which really dwells thy Redeemer?
It is no time now for lying slothful,
and full of wandering thoughts.
It is the time for asking all the graces of which thou standest in need,
and for receiving them from the true and living God
Who is dwelling within thee.

Now the heavens stand open,
now the Most Holy Trinity, with eyes all full of love, is above thee,
looking down on the object of Its own complacency --
Jesus Christ, Who is within thy breast.
Now more than ever Mary, and Angels, and Saints, thy advocates,
are beseeching graces for thee from God.
My soul, my soul,
lose not of these precious moments;
bend thy faculties to deal with the great affair of thy eternal salvation.
But how?
Art thou saying nothing to thy God?
Ah, poor and miserable as thou art,
thou delightest to live on amid thy miseries,
while thou hast with Thee the God of all riches;
and thou art silent, and thy mind begins already to wander,
and thou art so without desire of interest, so dull and so idle of heart!
Dost thou not know that if thou seekest not thou obtainest not?
Were a king to enter thy house and invite thee to ask favors of him,
wouldst thou be long silent?
Ah, miserable race, through our little faith!
The King of kings,
with His royal presence,
is within thee,
the Lord of the heavenly treasures.
A God -- thy God -- hath come to thee,
Who wishes to bestow great graces on thee
and thou speakest not a word!
This Infinite Benignity grieves
and laments that His favors are not sought;
and, unable longer to endure the languid and indifference of men,
forever longing to be kind to them and do them good,
He Himself takes to inviting them,
and beseeches them to ask.
Usque modo non petistis quidquam in nomine meo.
Petite, et accipietis, ut gaudium vestrum sit plenum (John 16: 24).
My soul, thou hast within thee a Lord omnipotent,
a most loving and munificent Father,
a most faithful God: and of what art thou afraid?
Seek and confide,
enlarge thy heart,
revive thy faith;
begin, ask great graces --
heavenly graces, graces worthy of God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keep Me Weak

Oh Lord, Jesus Christ, through Your Most Precious Body and Blood --

Keep me weak, that You might be my strength
Keep me blind, that I might see only through Your eyes;
Keep me deaf to the world, that I might hear only You
Keep me ignorant in worldly ways, that I might have Your wisdom in all things;
Keep my broken heart numb, that I might come to feel only as You feel;
That I might care for my brothers and sisters, only as You care for them;
That I might speak, only with Your voice;
That I might touch, only with Your healing touch;
That I might do all in my life, only according to Your Holy Will;
That I might love, only with Your Sacred Heart.

Oh Lord, take away all that is me
and give me all that is You,
that I might say with St. Paul:
"... I live now, not I, but Christ lives in me." (Galatians 2:20)

Dear Jesus,
through your most Precious Body and Blood,
have mercy on us poor sinners.

All for the greater honor and glory of God The Father Almighty.

Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Psalm 43:4-5
(recited in the traditional Latin Mass of the Catechumens)

And I will go to the altar of God, to God, the joy of my youth.

I shall yet praise Thee upon the harp, O God, my God.
Why art thou sad, my soul, and why art thou downcast?

Trust in God, for I shall yet praise Him, my Savior, and my God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanksgiving Prayer
St. John Chrysostomos

I thank You, loving Master,
benefactor of my soul,
that on this day You have made me worthy once again
of Your heavenly and immortal mysteries.

Direct my ways on the right path,
establish me firmly in Your fear,
guard my life,
and make my endeavors safe,
through the prayers and supplications
of the glorious Theotokos and ever virgin Mary
and of all Your Saints.

Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Communion Chant
Fragment from an ancient Eucharistic liturgy

He has given them a heavenly bread
and man has eaten the bread of angels.
He has given them a heavenly bread
we have received a bread of blessing:
the Body of Christ and His Precious Blood.
The Lord ... then took the bread,
and a saving drink, the Chalice of Life.
We have received the Holy Bread.
Let us bless the Lord who has done great things on all the earth.
All the people, praise the Lord,
exult with joy in the Lord, O you just:
you have received the Body and Blood of Christ.
We give you thanks, O Christ, our God,
because you have deigned to share with us
your Body and your Blood, O Saviour;
You have drawn to Yourself our hearts...

here present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar,

while we await Your unveiled presence in heaven.

in all places where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved
and where sins are committed against this Sacrament of Love.

for every soul that ever was, is or shall be created.
Jesus, my God, who for us
has endured hunger and cold, labor and fatigue,

has deigned to subject Yourself to the humiliation of temptation,
to the perfidy and defection of friends,
to the scorn of Your enemies,
I adore You.
Jesus, my God, who for us
has endured the buffeting of Your passion,
the scourging,
the crowning with thorns,
the heavy weight of the cross,
I adore You.
Jesus, my God,
who, for my salvation
and that of all mankind,
was cruelly nailed to the cross
and hung there for three long hours in bitter agony,
I adore You.
Jesus, My God,
who for love of us
did institute this Blessed Sacrament
and offer Yourself daily for the sins of men,
I adore You.
Jesus, my God, who in Holy Communion
became the food of my soul, I adore You.
Jesus, for You I live.
Jesus, for You I die.
Jesus, I am Yours in life and death.
Amen.

I give you every thought, word, and deed of my life,
and I offer all for your honor and glory.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Angels Rejoice
St. John Chrysostomos

O Death, where is your sting? O Hell, where is your victory?
Christ is risen, and you are overthrown.
Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen.
Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice.
Christ is risen, and life reigns.
Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave.
For Christ, being risen from the dead,
is become the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
To Him be glory and dominion unto ages of ages.
Amen.
