Prayer for a Visit to the Blessed Sacrament
Lord Jesus Christ, who, through the love you bear to us, remains with us day and night in the Blessed Sacrament, full of mercy and love, expecting, inviting, and receiving all who come to visit, I believe that you are present in the Sacrament of the altar. I adore you and I thank you for all the favors which you have bestowed on me, particularly for having given yourself to me in this sacrament, for having given me for my advocate your most holy Mother Mary, and for having called me to visit you in this church. I salute your most loving heart, and I do this for three ends: first, in thanksgiving for this great gift; second, in compensation for all the injuries you have received in this sacrament; and third, I wish by this visit to adore you and offer you company in all those places where you are least honored and most abandoned in the holy sacrament.
My Jesus, I love you with my whole heart. I am sorry for having offended your infinite goodness. I propose, with the help of your grace, never more to offend you; and, at this moment, as 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 wish with me, and whatever belongs to me. I ask only for your holy love, the gift of final perseverance, the accomplishment of your will. I recommend the souls in purgatory to you, particularly those who were most devoted to the Blessed Sacrament and to our most holy Mary. I also recommend to you all poor sinners. Finally, my dear Savior, 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 beg him, in your name, and for your sake, to accept them.
