Prayer to Jesus in the Sacrament of the Altar

Dear Jesus, present in the Sacrament of the Altar, be forever thanked and praised. Love, worthy of all celestial and terrestrial love, Who, out of infinite love for me, ungrateful sinner, didt assume our human nature, didt shed Thy most precious blood in the cruel scourging, and didt expire on a shameful cross for our eternal welfare! Now, illumined with lively faith, with the outpouring of my whole soul and the fervor of my heart, I humbly beseech Thee, through the infinite merits of Thy painful sufferings, give me strength and courage to destroy every evil passion which sways my heart, to bless Thee in my greatest affliction, to glorify Thee by the exact fulfillment of all my duties, supremely to hate all sin, and thus to become a saint.

Thank you ever so much for all the prayers and info you post.

I am printing it off and keeping it in a book for future reference. I am also making a faith journal for my children someday and you have been so helpful in explaining things.

I'm so glad that I've been a help to you, Jennifer. That is why I started this blog. That is why I post here and defend Jesus Christ and His Church. I am glad that my work is bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God.

God Bless you!!
