Prayer to the Most Blessed Sacrament

Prayer to the Most Blessed Sacrament

by St. Alphonsus Liguori

My Lord Jesus Christ, for the love which You bear

to men, You 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 which You have

bestowed upon me and in particular for having

given me Yourself in this Sacrament, for having

given me your holy Mother Mary for my advocate,

and for having called me to visit You in this chapel.

I now salute Your most loving Heart: and this for

three ends:

1. In thanksgiving for this great gift;

2. To make amends to You for all the outrages

which You receive in this Sacrament from all

Your enemies;

3. I intend by this visit to adore You in all the

places on earth in which You are the least revered

and the most abandoned.

My Jesus, I love You with all my heart. I grieve

for having so many times offended Your infinite

goodness. I promise with Your grace never more

to offend You in the future.

Now, miserable and unworthy though I be, I

consecrate myself to You without reserve;

I give You my entire will, my affections, my

desires, and all that I possess. From now on

dispose of me and of all that I have as You

please. All that 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 Blessed

Virgin Mary. I also recommend to You all poor


My dear Saviour, I unite all my affections with

the affections of Your most loving Heart; and I

offer them, thus united, to Your eternal Father,

and beseech Him in Your name to vouchsafe, for

Your love, to accept them.
