Behold, O my most loving Jesus,
how far Thine exceeding love hath reached!
Of Thine own Flesh and Most Precious Blood
Thou hast prepared for me a Divine table
in order to give Thyself wholly to me.
What hath impelled Thee to such transports of love?
Nothing else surely save Thy most loving Heart.
O adorable Heart of my Jesus,
burning furnace of Divine charity,
receive my heart within Thy most sacred wound;
to the end that in this school of love,
I may learn to make a return of love to the God
who hath given me such wondrous proofs of His love.

Blessed are you, Mary,
exalted Daughter of Zion!
You are highly favoured and full of grace,
for the Spirit of God descended upon you.
We magnify the Lord
and rejoice with you
for the gift of the Word made flesh,
our bread of life and cup of joy.
Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament,
our model of prayer in the Cenacle, pray for us
that we may become what we receive,
the body of Christ your son. Amen

Gracious God of our ancestors,
you led Peter Julian Eymard,
like Jacob in times past,
on a journey of faith.
Under the guidance of your gentle Spirit,
Peter Julian discovered the gift of love in the Eucharist
which your son Jesus offered for the hungers of humanity.
Grant that we may celebrate this mystery worthily, adore it profoundly,
and proclaim it prophetically for your greater glory. Amen.

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.
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.
And finally, my dear Saviour, I unite all my affections with the affections of your most loving Heart, and I offer them with you to your Eternal Father and beg him for your sake and for love of you, graciously to accept and grant them.

Look down, O Lord, from Thy sanctuary and from the high habitation of heaven, and behold this sacred Victim, which our great High Priest, Thy Holy Child, the Lord Jesus, immolates unto Thee for the sins of His brethren, and be propitious to the multitude of our iniquities. Behold, the voice of the Blood of Jesus, our Brother, crieth to Thee from the Cross! Graciously hear, O Lord: be appeased, O Lord: heartken and do not delay for Thine own sake, my God, because Thy Name is invoked, upon this city, and upon Thy people; and do with us according to Thy mercy.
