To the Blessed Sacrament
Say the preliminary prayer, MY LORD JESUS CHRIST, etc.
To every soul that visits Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament, He
addresses the words which He said to the Sacred Spouse: Arise, make
haste, my love, my dove, my beautiful one, and come
[Cant. ii. 10] Thou, O soul,
that visitest Me, "arise" from thy miseries; I am here to enrich thee
with graces. "Make haste," approach, come near Me; fear not My
majesty, which has humbled itself in this Sacrament in order to take
away thy fear, and to give thee confidence. "My beloved," thou art no
longer My enemy, but My friend; since thou lovest Me and I love thee.
"My beautiful one," My grace has made thee fair. "And come," draw
near and cast thyself into My arms, and ask Me with the greatest
confidence for whatever thou willest.
St. Teresa says that this great king of glory has disguised Himself in
the Sacrament under the species of bread, and that He has concealed His
majesty to encourage us to approach His Divine Heart with greater
confidence. Let us, then, draw near to Jesus with great confidence and
affection; let us unite ourselves to Him, and let us ask Him for
O Eternal Word made man, and present for my sake in this Sacrament,
what joy should be mine now that I stand in Thy Presence, Who art my
God, Who art infinite majesty and infinite goodness, and hast so tender
an affection for my soul! Ye souls who love God, wherever you may be,
either in Heaven or on earth, love Him for me also. Mary, my Mother,
help me to love Him. And Thou, most beloved Lord, make Thyself the
object of all my love. Make Thyself the Lord of my entire will; possess
entire self. I consecrate my whole mind to Thee, that it may always be
occupied with the thought of Thy goodness; I also consecrate my body to
Thee, that it may help me to please Thee: I consecrate my soul to Thee,
that it may be all Thine. Would, O beloved of my soul, that all men
could know the tenderness of the love which Thou bearest them, that
all might live only to honor Thee and to please Thee, as Thou desirest
and deservest. Grant that at least I may always live enamoured of Thine
infinite beauty. From this day forward my desire is to do all that I
can to be pleasing to Thee. I now resolve to abandon everything, be
it what it may, as soon as I perceive that it displeases Thee, however
much it may cost me, even should it be necessary for this purpose to
lose all, or even to lay down my life. Fortunate indeed shall I be, if
I lose all to gain Thee, my God, my treasure, my love, my all!
. Jesus, my love, take all that I have;
take full possession of me!
