My greatest desire, O Jesus Savior, is that You abide by me in this hour of need.  I am sure that You can help me because You are the son of God, and when I see You carrying the Holy Cross I am filled with courage because I remember how much You love me.

In spite of all, however, I can only repeat Your own words to God the Father, “Thy will be done.”

I believe that You, O Jesus, are in the most holy Sacrament.  I love You and desire You.  Come into my heart.  I embrace You.  Oh, never leave me.  May the burning and most sweet power of Your love, O Lord Jesus Christ, I beseech You, absorb my mind that I may die through love of Your love, Who were graciously pleased to die through love of my love.

16.  A Short Visit to the Blessed Sacrament Before Meditation

I place myself in the presence of Him, in whose Incarnate Presence I am before I place myself there.

I adore You, O my Savior, present here as God and man, in soul and body, in true flesh and blood.

I acknowledge and confess that I kneel before that Sacred Humanity, which was conceived in Mary’s womb, and lay in Mary’s bosom; which grew up to man’s estate, and by the Sea of Galilee called the Twelve, wrought miracles, and spoke words of wisdom and peace; which in due season hung on the cross, lay in the tomb, rose from the dead, and now reigns in heaven.

I praise, and bless, and give myself wholly to Him, Who is the true Bread of my soul, and my everlasting joy.

17.  Act of Adoration

With deepest humility, I adore You, my Lord and God; You have made my soul Your dwelling place.  I adore You as my Creator from whose hands I came and with whom I am to be happy forever.

18.  Prayer Before a Crucifix

Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus, while before Your face I humbly kneel, and with burning soul pray and beseech You to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, true contrition for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment, while I contemplate  with great love and tender pity Your five wounds, pondering over them within me, calling to mind the words which David, Your prophet, said of You, my good Jesus: “They have pierced my hands and my feet; they have numbered all my bones”  Ps 21, 17-18).

19.  Prayer Before a Crucifix

Dear good and gentle Jesus, I come before You, asking You most earnestly to engrave uon my heart a deep and lively faith, hope and charity, true repentance for my sins, and a firm resolve to make amends.

20.  Prayer on Friday

O Jesus, it was on a Friday that You shed Your precious Blood on the Cross and redeemed the world.  You did penance for the entire world.  Mother Church asks that I set every Friday of the year aside as a special day of penance.  This Friday I want to offer special prayers and sacrifices in reparation for my personal sins and those of the world.

O Jesus, there are so many things I do in penance on Friday.  I can visit the sick, the lonely; I can do special things to serve You in my neighbor. 

21.  Devotion Prayer the Holy Face

O Jesus, who in Thy Cruel Passion became the “Reproach of men and the Man of Sorrows,” I worship Your divine Face.

Once it shone with the beauty and sweetness of the Divinity; now for my sake it is become as the face of a leper.

Yet in that disfigured countenance I recognize Your infinite love, and I am consumed with the desire of loving You and making You loved by all mankind.

The tears that streamed in such abundance from Your eyes are to me as precious pearls which I delight to gather, that with their infinite worth I may ransom the souls of the poor sinners.

O Jesus, whose Face is the sole beauty that ravishes my heart, I may not behold here upon earth the sweetness of Your glance nor feel the ineffable tenderness of Your kiss.

To this I consent, but I pray that you imprint in me Your Divine Likeness, and I beg You to so inflame me with Your love, that it may quickly consume me, and soon I may reach the vision of Your glorious Face in heaven!  Amen.

22.  Prayer to Jesus Christ Crucified

My good and dear Jesus, I kneel before You, asking You most earnestly to engrave upon my heart a deep and lively faith, hope and charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm resolve to make amends.  As I reflect upon Your five wounds, and dwell upon them with deep compassion and grief, I recall, good Jesus, the words the prophet David spoke long ago concerning Yourself: “They have pierced my hands and my feet; they have counted all my bones!”

“Nothing is more practical than finding God, . . . than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way.  What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.  It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.  Fall in love with Him and it will change everything.”

O Jesus, living Bread descended from heaven, how infinitely great and good is Your love!  In order to perpetuate and strengthen our faith in Your Real Presence in the Eucharist, you changed the consecrated species of bread and wine into Flesh and Blood, which are perpetually reserved in the Eucharistic Sanctuary of Lanciano.  Oh, increase ever more our faith in You, Sacramental Lord.

Grant that burning with love for You, we may come to seek comfort in dangers, in necessities and in anxieties, only at your feet, O Divine Prisoner of our tabernacles, O perpetual fount of every grace.

Heavenly Father, in union with all the Masses being offered today, I give you praise and thanks for the many gifts you will send me, including the gift of my small sharing in the Cross.  May this my prayer glorify you and console your Son.  With the help of your grace, I resolve to remain all day in this prayerful spirit of praise and thanks and, further, to console Jesus by being merciful to my neighbor through my deeds, words, and prayers.

Mary, my mother, come with your spouse, the Spirit.  Make my sacrifice of praise, thanks, and mercy a most pleasing consolation to your Son.  Behold, I present to you all I am and have.  Take my offering so it may pass through your Immaculate Heart, to Jesus’ Sacred Heart, and on to the Father, for his greater glory.  Amen.

30.  A Prayer for Migrants

Merciful and loving Father, you provided for your people Israel in their exodus from slavery a promised land that you established for them, and in Jesus Christ you provide welcome refuge for all in need.

We ask for you divine protection for all migrants who have left their homes in search of new opportunity in another land.

For refuges, who are forced from their homes due to threats of violence, we beseech you to provide them a safe haven.

For migrants trafficked into slavery, grant them rescue, healing, and the strength to start again.

For immigrants, who so often leave their family and friends who are left behind, grant them a better life and greater opportunity elsewhere.

We pray in particular for your protection over migrant children who are vulnerable to exploitation and abuse at the hands of others.

We implore you to grant all migrants your protection and lead them to a place of safety.

Be with all those in need with your power to save.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.  Amen.
