eternal and infallible Truth,
since Thou hast said that
Thou art really present in the holy Eucharist,
I believe it firmly.

which I see,
and which I am to receive,
is not bread,
but the living Body of Jesus
God and Man:
it is the God
Whom the Angels
adore in heaven;
I believe it.
I do not understand this Mystery,
but I wish to believe it without seeking to penetrate it,
that I may have the happiness
of seeing and contemplating it one day in heaven.
Strengthen it so lively,
that I may honour
and receive Thee,
as if I already beheld Thee.
