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.
Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ,
Passion of Chjrist of Christ,
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Your wounds hide me.
Separated from You let me never be.
From the evil one protect me.
At the hour of my death, call me;
and close to You bid me.
That with Your saints and angels,
I may be praising You forever and ever.
- Saint Ignatius of Loyola
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.
