Prayer to the Most Blessed Sacrament


My Lord Jesus Christ,

who for the love you bear us,

remain night and day in this Sacrament,

full of compassion and of love,

awaiting, calling and welcoming

all who come to visit you.

I believe that you are present 

in the Sacrament of the Altar. 

I adore you from the abyss of my nothingness 

and I thank you for all the graces 

you have given me until now, 

and in particular, 

for having given me your Most Holy Mother Mary 

as my advocate 

and for having called me 

to visit you in this church.

 

I now salute your Most Loving Heart, 

and this for three ends: 

first, in thanksgiving for this great gift; 

second, to make amends to you for all the outrages 

which you 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 revered 

and the most abandoned.

 

My Jesus, I love you with my heart. 

I grieve for having until now so many times 

offended your infinite goodness. 

I purpose by your grace never more to offend you 

for the time to come; 

and now, miserable and unworthy though I am, 

I consecrate myself to you without reserve. 

I give you and renounce my entire will, 

my affections, my desires, and all that I possess. 

From now on, use me 

and all that I have as you wish. 

All I ask of you and desire is your holy love, 

final perseverance 

and the perfect accomplishment of your will.

 

I recommend to you the souls in Purgatory; 

but especially those who had the greatest devotion 

to the Most Blessed Sacrament 

and to the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. 

I also recommend to you all poor sinners.

 

And finally, my dear Saviour, 

I unite all my affections with the affections 

of your most loving Heart, 

and I offer them with you to your Eternal Father 

and beg him for your sake 

and for love of you, 

graciously to accept and grant them.

Amen.
