VISITS TO JESUS IN THE
BLESSED SACRAMENT
O Sacrament most holy! O Sacrament divine! All praise and all thanksgiving, be every moment Thine!

O my beloved Jesus, O God, Who hast loved men with such exceeding love, what more canst Thou do to make Thyself loved by these ungrateful men? Oh, if men loved Thee, all the churches would be continually filled with people prostrate on the ground, adoring and thanking Thee, and burning with love for Thee at seeing Thee with the eyes of faith hidden in a tabernacle. But no, men, forgetful of Thee and of Thy love, are ready enough to court a man from whom they hope to gain some miserable advantage, whilst Thou, O my Lord, Thou remainest there alone and abandoned by all. Oh, that I could by my devotion make reparation for such ingratitude! I am sorry that I also have hitherto been like them, careless and ungrateful. But for the future I will not be so any longer. If at one time I have despised Thee, I now desire nothing but to love Thee. O my Jesus, Thou art my Love and my only Good, “my God and my all!”

ASPIRATIONS

Let us, with Mary Immaculate, adore, thank, pray to, and console the
Most Sacred and Well-Beloved Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.

My Jesus, mercy!

All for Thee, O Sacred Heart of Jesus!

Blessed be God! (To be especially said after hearing a blasphemy.)

May Thy Blood, oh Lord, be my salvation.

May Thy Body, O Lord, be my life.

Oh Blood and Water that came out of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You

We adore Thee, most Holy Lord Jesus Christ, here and in all Thy churches
that are in the while world, and we bless Thee; because by Thy holy Cross,
Thou hast redeemed the world.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
grant us Thy peace.

O Jesus, grant that I may be Thine, wholly Thine, forever Thine.

O my Jesus, Thou Who art very Love, enkindle in my heart that
Divine fire which consumes the Saints and transforms into Thee.

Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, Light of the world,
I adore Thee; for Thee I live, for Thee I die. Amen.

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

The value of a Spiritual Communion well done is great. We can and we must make a
Spiritual Communion often. This is a very simple act. It is done simply by thinking of
Jesus and His great Love for u,; and in our Love for Him. Then we have to ask
the Holy Virgin to implore to her Divine Son to come to our hearts. These
Spiritual Communions can be offered in the interests of the Sorrowful
and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Our special intentions can be added, too!

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION 1

MY JESUS, I believe that Thou art in the Blessed Sacrament. I love Thee
above all things, and I long for Thee in my soul. Since I cannot now
receive Thee Sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though
Thou hast already come, I embrace Thee and unite myself entirely to Thee;
never permit me to be separated from Thee.

An Act of Spiritual Communion, according to any pious formula, is enriched with a partial indulgence.

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION 2

[To be recited three times.]

O, Jesus, I turn toward the Holy Tabernacle where Thou doth live hidden for love of me.
I love Thee, O, my God. I cannot receive Thee in Holy Communion.
Come, nevertheless, and visit me with Thy Grace. Come spiritually into my heart.
Purify it. Sanctify it. Render it like unto Thine Own. Amen.

Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof, but
only say the Word, and my soul shall be healed.

===============================================================

ANIMA CHRISTI

SOUL OF CHRIST, be my sanctification;
Body of Christ, be my salvation;
Blood of Christ, fill all my veins;
Water of Christ’s side, wash out my stains;
Passion of Christ, my comfort be;
O good Jesus, listen to me;
In Thy Wounds, I fain would hide;
Ne’er to be parted from Thy side;
Guard me should the foe assail me;
Call me when my life shall fail me;
Bid me come to Thee above,
With Thy Saints to sing Thy love,
World without end. Amen.

ASPIRATIONS

HAIL, O true Body, born of the Virgin Mary, and which for man was sacrificed upon the Cross.

Be thou blessed, O holy Virgin, through whom we received the Heavenly Bread that preserves and increases true life within us.

  1. Just beautiful. Thank you dear Cindy.
    I’ll be adding the intentions of our Holy Father and praying especially for him.
    This month dedicated to the Holy Eucharist seems fitting to pray all the more and offer all our little sacrifices for him.

  2. You are very welcome, Catherine!
    I am with you. Let’s sacrifice and pray very much for our Holy Father.

  3. Angel’s Prayer At Fatima

    “Most Holy Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — I adore
    Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious body, blood, soul
    and divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the
    world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences
    whereby He is offended. And through the infinite merits of His Most
    Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart Of Mary, I beg of Thee the
    conversion of poor sinners.”
    ——————————————————————

    Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

    * Adorable Heart of Jesus, the tenderest, the most
    amiable, the most generous of all hearts, penetrated with
    gratitude at the sight of Thy benefits, I come to consecrate
    myself wholly and unreservedly to Thee! I wish to devote all
    my energies to propagating Thy worship and winning, if
    possible, all hearts to Thee. Receive my heart this day, O
    Jesus!

    Or rather take it, change it, purify it, to render it
    worthy of Thee; Make it humble, gentle, patient, faithful and
    generous like Thine, by inflaming it with the fire of Thy
    love. Hide it in Thy Divine Heart with all hearts that love
    Thee and are consecrated to Thee; never permit me to take my
    heart from Thee again. Let me rather die than grieve Thy
    Adorable Heart. Thou knowest O Heart of Jesus, that the
    desire of my heart is to love Thee always, to be wholly Thine
    in life and in death, in time and eternity. Most Sacred
    Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I
    trust in Thee.
    ———————————————————

    Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

    * I, (name), a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today
    in Thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my baptism; I
    renounce Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself
    entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my
    cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more
    faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

    In the presence of all the Heavenly court I choose thee
    this day for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and
    consecrate to thee, as Thy slave, my body and soul, my goods,
    both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my
    good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the
    entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs
    to me, without exception, according to Thy good pleasure,
    for the greater glory of God, in time and in eternity. Amen.

    Hail to Thee, True Body
    (A Prayer to our Eucharistic Lord)

    Hail to thee, true body born
    From Virgin Mary’s womb!
    The same that on the cross was nailed
    And bore for man the bitter doom.

    Thou, whose side was pierced and flowed
    Both with water and with blood;
    Suffer us to taste of thee,
    In our life’s last agony.

    O kind, O loving one!
    O sweet Jesus, Mary’s Son!

    Eucharistic Prayers from Fatima

    In the spring of 1916, a year before Our Lady visited the three children of Fatima, an Angel of God came to them and taught them this prayer:

    My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love Thee!
    I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love Thee. (3 times)

    In the fall of the same year, the Angel prostrated himself before the Sacred Body and Precious Blood of Jesus Christ and taught the three children thus to make reparation to our Eucharistic Lord:

    Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly!
    I offer Thee the most Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the Tabernacles of the world,
    in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended.
    And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.

    Stories of Eucharistic Miracles
    Taken from www.olrl.org/sacramen/ihsmrcls.shtml

    TRUE STORIES OF EUCHARISTIC MIRACLES

    We who hold faithful to what the Roman Catholic Church teaches,
    believe that Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is truly present in
    the Most Holy Eucharist. We believe it on the words of Jesus Christ,
    the Son of God, who promised to give us His flesh to eat and blood to
    drink, at the lakeside of Galilee (John 6, 48-60), and who fulfilled
    that promise at the Last Supper (Matt. 26: 26-28; Luke 22: 19-20;
    Mark 14: 22-24; 1 Cor. 11: 23-25). We have also the divine,
    infallible testimony of the Catholic Church which He established. The
    Holy Synod (the Council of Trent) decreed in Canon 1 on the Most Holy
    Sacrament of the Eucharist: “If anyone denies that in the sacrament
    of the most Holy Eucharist are contained truly, really and
    substantially the body and blood together with the soul and divinity
    of our Lord Jesus Christ, and consequently the whole Christ, but says
    that He is in it only as in a sign, or figure or force, let him be
    anathema.”

    Over the centuries, Our Dear Lord has seen fit to work over 100
    miracles confirming His real presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
    What is the purpose of these miracles? To prove what He said is true
    as the scripture says: “The Lord confirmed the word with signs that
    followed.” (Mark 16:16) He wants us to believe His teaching and
    threatens us with damnation if we do not. “He that believeth not
    shall be condemned.” (Mark 16:16) God is willing to give
    extraordinary means to help our faith because He desires our
    salvation. Jesus goes so far as to say: “Though you will not believe
    Me, believe the works.” (John 10:38) “They give testimony of Me.”

    Related below are four wonderful Eucharistic miracles confirming Our
    Lord’s real presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

    1. For a long time the parish priest of Moncada in Spain had
    celebrated Mass without any scruples of conscience, when suddenly he
    became the prey of a violent doubt as to whether he had been rightly
    ordained. In his distress, to allay his doubts he determined to put
    his case before his bishop. He immediately set out on foot and
    journeyed to Valencia, the seat of the diocese. In this place it
    pleased Almighty God to deliver him from his trouble, and to give him
    light and peace by means of a very remarkable miracle.

    The priest had been appointed to say Christmas Mass. He had reached
    the awful moment of Consecration, and with trembling hands took the
    host and pronounced the words of transubstantiation with a quivering
    voice. As he raised the Sacred Host aloft, and knelt again in
    trembling adoration, the cry of a little five-year-old child rang out
    from the congregation: “O Mama, what a lovely child! See there, Mama!
    He is up on the altar.” A little lad nearby, apparently forgetful of
    everything else, stood upon the chair and clapped his hands with joy.
    The boy’s mother was embarrassed and bade him hush, for no one else
    had seen the vision of beauty; only the innocent child saw it when
    the Sacred Host was raised on high. Again and again he entreated his
    mother to look. “Such a beautiful child, Mama,” he whispered, “just
    like the little baby over there in the crib.”

    The mother and child awaited to hear a second Mass which was said by
    the same priest at dawn, and again at the Elevation the little boy
    exclaimed, “Oh, there he is again, Mama, don’t you see? The priest is
    holding him up in his hands and now he has laid him on the altar!” The
    mother bade the child be silent; she could not see anything, the great
    grace being granted only to her little son.

    The priest completed the Christmas offering by saying the third Mass.
    At the Elevation the boy was all excitement, and the same scene was
    enacted as before. The happy mother repeated this strange occurrence
    to others, and through them it reached the ears of the priest himself
    who, it may be believed, was greatly comforted thereby. However, his
    scruples were not entirely removed. He doubted whether the child
    might not have been deceived, and therefore he requested that the
    little boy be cross-examined by him. But the answers of the child
    were so accurate that he found no reason to doubt the reality of the
    manifestation. Full of joy and filled with gratitude towards God, he
    invited the little boy and his mother to be present as often as
    possible at his Mass, and on each occasion the miracle was renewed.
    As doubts still lingered in his mind, he resolved to receive a final
    convincing proof. Taking three particles with him to the altar, he
    placed two upon the corporal and consecrated them, leaving the third
    one unconsecrated but within reach. After Holy Mass was ended he
    called the little boy to the altar, and asked him if he saw the
    divine Infant in either of the particles, and, if so, in which. “Oh
    yes, Father,” said the boy, “there He is! See, He is stretching out
    His hands.” The little fellow seemed quite ravished with delight. On
    pointing to the other host the priest asked: “And what about it? Is
    the Divine Infant also in that other host?” The child answered, “No.”
    “But are you sure?” queried the priest. “Oh yes, Father, there is
    nothing there.” At the last manifestation the peace of the good
    priest returned to him. Unrest and scruple vanished from his mind
    forever, and for the remainder of his life he served God with greater
    love and piety.

    PRAYER: “O Sacrament most holy! O Sacrament divine! All praise and
    thanksgiving be every moment Thine.

    2. In Valpariso, Chile, at the beginning of the 20th century, Fr.
    Mateo Crawley-Boevey SS, CC., well known as the great Apostle of the
    Sacred Heart of Jesus, was a young priest. Fr. Mateo told this story
    wherever he preached and he found that where people were prepared to
    earn “three golden coins” with love, many graces were obtained and
    many conversions followed.

    He relates that one day an 8 year old girl told him that Jesus spoke
    to her every time she received Holy Communion. Father was somewhat
    skeptical and requested her to ask Jesus to give him proof. The proof
    Father requested was the sudden conversion of a certain man who was a
    big sinner, a fallen away Catholic, and enemy of the Church … and
    also that this man should come to him for Confession.

    About a week later when Fr. Mateo was hearing confessions, the young
    girl told him that this sinner was coming up to the church. As the
    priest was leaving the confessional, the fallen away Catholic came
    into the church and walked over to Fr. Mateo and asked him to help
    him with his confession. He said that it was the first one since he
    was baptized. He did not know what came over him that morning but he
    suddenly understood the necessity of going to confession. Father
    realized that he had received the proof he requested.

    The young girl told the priest that Our Lord revealed to her that He
    would give the graces to repent and mend his ways to this fallen away
    Catholic, and also to many other souls. He said, “Always ask Me for
    souls and I will give them to you, and tell Father Mateo to ask Me
    for souls. I will give them to him, too, but first you must become My
    missionary.”

    She thought she was too young to be a missionary. Our Lord assured
    her that He would make her His missionary and that she would have to
    pay a certain price for souls. “I want you,” said Jesus, “to earn
    three golden coins a day.” Our Lord then explained what He meant by
    golden coins.
    1) The first golden coin was her prayers to Him for souls.
    2) The second golden coin was her little sacrifices, especially acts
    of obedience.
    3) The third golden coin was a promise: “never to miss Mass or Holy
    Communion through your own fault and to visit Me often in the Blessed
    Sacrament.”

    3. On the 17th of December, 1899, the fast mail on the way from
    Bordeaux to Paris met with a collision. In the mail car was Gabriel
    Gargam, a 30-year-old post office express clerk. At the time of the
    wreck the train was going at the speed of fifty miles an hour. By the
    crash Gargam was thrown fifty-two feet. He was terribly bruised and
    broken and paralyzed from the waist down. He was barely alive when
    lifted onto a stretcher. Taken to a hospital, his existence for some
    time was a living death. After eight months he had wasted away to a
    mere skeleton, weighing but seventy-eight pounds, although normally a
    big man. His feet became gangrenous. He could take no solid food and
    was obliged to take nourishment by a tube. Only once in twenty-four
    hours could he be fed even that way.

    Gargam’s condition was pitiable in the extreme. He could not help
    himself even in the most trifling needs. Two trained nurses were
    needed day and night to assist him. Previous to the accident, Gargam
    had not been to church for fifteen years. His aunt, who was a nun of
    the Order of the Sacred Heart, begged him to go to Lourdes. He
    refused. She continued her appeals to him to place himself in the
    hands of Our Lady of Lourdes. He was deaf to all her prayers. After
    continuous pleading of his mother he consented to go to Lourdes. It
    was now two years since the accident, and not for a moment had he
    left his bed all that time. He was carried on a stretcher to the
    train. The exertion caused him to faint, and for a full hour he was
    unconscious. They were on the point of abandoning the pilgrimage, as
    it looked as if he would die on the way, but the mother insisted, and
    the journey was made.

    Arrived at Lourdes, he was carried to the miraculous pool and
    tenderly placed in its watersno effect. Rather a bad effect
    resulted, for the exertion threw him into a swoon and he lay
    apparently dead. On the way back they saw the procession of the
    Blessed Sacrament approaching. They stood aside to let it pass,
    having placed a cloth over the face of the man whom they supposed to
    be dead.

    As the priest passed carrying the Sacred Host, he pronounced
    Benediction over the sorrowful group around the covered body. Soon
    there was a movement from under the covering. To the amazement of the
    bystanders, the body raised itself to a sitting posture. While the
    family were looking dumbfounded and the spectators gazed in
    amazement, Gargam said in a full, strong voice that he wanted to get
    up. He got up and stood erect, walked a few paces and said that he
    was cured. The multitude looked in wonder, and then fell on their
    knees and thanked God for this new sign of His power at the shrine of
    His Blessed Mother. For two years hardly any food had passed his lips
    but now he sat down to the table and ate a hearty meal.

    On August 20th, 1901, sixty prominent doctors examined Gargam.
    Without stating the nature of the cure, they pronounced him entirely
    cured. Gargam, out of gratitude to God in the Holy Eucharist and His
    Blessed Mother, consecrated himself to the service of the invalids at
    Lourdes. Fifteen years after his miraculous cure he was still engaged
    in his strenuous and devoted work. He was for years a living, visible
    testimony of the supernatural.

    PRAYER: May the Heart of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament be
    praised, adored and loved with grateful affection, at every moment,
    in all the tabernacles of the world, even to the end of time.

    4. Some years ago, a young man was unhappily led astray into the
    paths of Jewish infidelity. While still in the flower of youth, his
    heart was filled with dreams of glory to be attained as a
    distinguished musician. One evening he was asked to play the organ in
    one of the principal churches in Paris; there in that church God
    awaited him, and prepared for him, not a triumph of his self-love,
    but a humiliation a thousand times more glorious. Already the roof of
    the sacred edifice re-echoed the sound of the solemn chants, and the
    melodious tones of the organ had filled all hearts with recollection
    and prayer; every head was bowed and the God of the Eucharist had
    blessed His children prostrate in lowly adoration. The unbelieving
    musician, alone, dared to raise his haughty brow before that God
    despised by his forefathers, but in vain. A mysterious and invisible
    hand bowed his head and humbled him to the ground. A miracle of grace
    was effected; the young man was conquered; he knelt down a Jew; he
    rose up a Catholic. His heart wounded by the Real Presence in the
    Sacred Host, he left the church; soon the waters of Baptism were
    poured upon him, and exchanging his fashionable attire for the coarse
    serge of a monk, he bade an eternal farewell to the pleasures of the
    world. A living example of the power of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in
    the Blessed Sacrament, he went from city to city, and from village to
    village, proclaiming the love of God, repeating again and again: “The
    days of grief are departed. I have found peace of heart since I have
    tasted the delights of the tabernacle of the Lord.” If you would know
    the name of this privileged soul, ask it at the cloister of Mount
    Carmel, and they will tell you it was Father Augustine of the Most
    Blessed Sacrament. If one single visit to the God of the Eucharist
    transformed an obstinate Jew into a good Catholic, what may we not
    hope to obtain by devout visits to the Blessed Sacrament?
    PRAYER: O my Jesus, I adore Thee in this Holy Sacrament, as my Lord
    and my God, as my Redeemer and Savior.

    5. About the year 1599, in the city of Posen, a very remarkable
    incident took place in connection with the Blessed Sacrament. A
    servant girl, who was bribed by some unbelievers, stole from the
    chapel of the Dominicans three small Hosts, wrapped them in a linen
    cloth, and carried them to the house of the wretches who had hired
    her for the deed. The unbelievers treated the Sacred Hosts in a most
    sacrilegious and shameful manner. They threw them on a table and cut
    the Sacred Particles. Blood spurted out on the first one of the
    sacrilegious creatures and left a stain that could not be removed.
    The report of this strange occurrence soon spread abroad and crowds
    ran to see for themselves. A blind woman insisted on being led to the
    scene of this marvelous incident. Divinely inspired, she cried out:
    “If Thou art the true God, He whom our ancestors nailed to the Cross,
    restore to me my sight!” She was immediately cured, and went away
    proclaiming the miracle. The guilty profaners, fearing the just
    punishment of their heinous crime, wished to dispose of the
    desecrated Hosts, and after several fruitless efforts buried them to
    a great depth in a swamp.

    One day on the octave of the Blessed Virgin, two herdsmen, father and
    son, brought their cattle to pasture near this place. The father went
    to a church not far off to hear Mass, while the son guarded the herd.
    To his surprise the boy saw the cattle approach the swamp and kneel
    down with their heads bent low. The shepherd raised his eyes and saw
    in the air over the swamp three shining objects. In amazement he
    perceived that they were three Hosts, and he instantly prostrated
    himself and profoundly adored the God who revealed Himself by so
    great a prodigy.

    In the meantime, the father returned from Mass. As soon as the boy
    saw him he ran to meet him. “Father,” he shouted, “our oxen are
    adoring the Blessed Sacrament!” “Nonsense!” replied the parent,
    shrugging his shoulders, “what folly is this!” “Come and see for
    yourself,” protested the boy, “that I am telling the truth.” While
    proceeding on his way the old man suddenly paused, with feet fastened
    to the ground and with eyes entranced as he beheld the astonishing
    scene. There at the farthest end of the marsh three little lights
    hung in the air, while the dumb beasts knelt with heads bowed to the
    earth. The old herdsman, all doubts gone, knelt in adoration before
    the three consecrated Hosts profaned by the unbelievers. After a
    moment’s prayer, the old man ran to the city and proclaimed the
    wonder to all whom he met. The people, however, looked upon him as a
    fool, and even cast him into prison. And now a new wonder
    occurredthe prison door opened and freed the prisoner. This startled
    the authorities and they began to investigate. The Bishop and the
    clergy were informed and went in procession to the place indicated by
    the herdsman. Then the Sacred Hosts, which had remained suspended in
    the air, slowly descended and rested in the hands of a saintly
    priest. They were taken back to the city amidst great pomp and
    splendor. Then the authorities began to debate what disposition to
    make of the miraculous Hosts. While they were arguing, the Hosts rose
    from their hands, ascended into the air and returned to the marsh. The
    wish of Our Lord was evident. So they erected an improvised sanctuary
    on the spot, and this in turn was soon followed by a magnificent
    basilica founded by Ladislaus Jagellon, King of Poland. Needless to
    say, thousands of pilgrims have visited the famous shrine to adore
    the miraculous Hosts.

    PRAYER: O sweetest Heart of Jesus, I implore that I may love Thee
    more and more. Jesus meek and humble of Heart, make my heart like
    unto Thine.

    Only in the Catholic Church is Jesus truly present in the Holy
    Eucharist. This is one of the great proofs that the Catholic Church
    is the one true Church.
